3lb steak serves 4-6 people.

Main Ingredients:
3 lb Tri-Tip Steak

For Tri-Tip Rub:
1 Tbs fresh ground black pepper
1 tsp crushed red pepper
1 Tbs Herbs de Provence
1 Tbs Granulated garlic
2 Tbs Kosher salt
Zest of 3 Homegrown Organic lemons

For Serving Tacos:
4-6 Organic lemons sliced in half
Heated corn tortillas
Shredded cabbage
Chopped cilantro
Your favorite chunky red salsa
Chopped red onion


Combine rub ingredients and apply to Tri-Tip steak making sure to coat completely with a generous layer of the herbs. Allow the steak to sit covered for at least an hour, preferably overnight. After the rub has had time rest on the steak, heat grill and grill steak until medium-rare (slightly pink the center). Remove from grill and slice steak into thin strips and set aside. To assemble the tacos, layer two corn tortillas per taco. Fill with shredded cabbage, cilantro, onions, and top with slices of steak. Finish with a dollop of salsa and a liberal drizzle of fresh lemon for true Santa Maria style.
