    I recently had the pleasure of spending time in the Certified Angus Beef® brand test kitchen working with world renowned chef, Chef Tony Biggs.  Together we created some memorable and fun new flavors for you to serve to your guests this holiday season.

    I was super excited to use a new toy they had in their kitchen, a stove top smoker and a cut of beef I don’t see too much of in Baltimore, tri-tip. Tri-tip seems to be the most popular on the west coast, and even more specifically Santa Maria, you can ask your butcher for this specific cut of meat.

    Tri-tip is a three-pointed, flag shaped cut from the bottom sirloin.  Tender, easy to prepare and less expensive than other cuts, it is a really an underutilized gem.   If you can’t get your hands on a tri-tip roast, use a another sirloin cut.

    I also understand that not everyone has a stove-top smoker at home and while I don’t either, I think I’ll be adding it to my Christmas list.  This dandy little thing gave me all of the flavor from a large, time consuming smoker in just 45 minutes!

    Varying models range from $40-$100.  Just make sure to get a large enough size for the items you plan to smoke.  Even the large size will not accommodate more than 4 or 5 pounds.

    If you don’t  own a smoker, just use the oven for the main cooking process and finish on the grill for a nice char and to allow the cranberry glaze to caramelize. Let’s also say that if you have any glaze left over, it tastes pretty amazing drizzled over vanilla ice cream, bread pudding, pancakes, waffles or buttermilk biscuits.

    Ingredients
    Roast:
    • 3 lb tri-tip roast or other sirloin roast
    • 3 tablespoon coarse sea salt
    • 3 tablespoons black pepper freshly ground
    • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    If Smoking:
    • 2 tablespoons green tea
    • 1/2 cup white rice
    • 1 1/2 cups oak smoking chips finely chopped
    Cranberry Glaze:
    • 1 cup orange juice
    • 2 cups sugar
    • 12 ounces fresh cranberries
    • 1 cup Chambord
    • Zest of one orange
    • 1 teaspoon black pepper freshly ground
    • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
    • 1 cup cranberry juice
    Instructions
    1. In a small bowl, mix coarse sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Rub roast with olive oil and then massage with salt and pepper. Allow to sit for 1 hour to 24 hours before smoking or roasting.
    2. If smoking, place green tea, rice and wood chips in the bottom of smoker, heat over high until it starts to smoke. Add roast and smoke on stove top for 15 minutes before transferring to a 400 degree oven. If roasting, place roast in a large roasting pan in a 400 degree oven. Both ways, roast for 40-45 minutes or until roast registers 135 degrees.
    3. Meanwhile, place orange juice through cranberries in a large sauce pan. Heat and stir over medium-high heat until cranberries burst open and mixture starts to make a syrup.
    4. Remove from heat and place mixture in a blender or food processor and blend on high until mixture is smooth. Add Chambord through nutmeg and blend again.
    5. Run mixture through fine mesh sieve to remove any solids. Return mixture to sauce pan and medium-high heat. Add cranberry juice and reduce by half.
    6. When tri-tip is done roasting, heat grill to high heat. Baste with cranberry glaze and char on each side for 2-3 minutes.
    7. Slice against the grain and serve with a side of cranberry glaze.
