Pineapple Teriyaki Tri Tip

Pineapple Teriyaki Tri Tip

This tri-tip is beautiful with slightly Asian flavors coming from teriyaki and pineapple, then grilled.

Tri-tip can be a hard meat to cook, initially, it looks like it should be cooked low and slow, yet it is actually correct to cook it like a steak, remembering to slice thinly against the grains to serve.

The tri-tip can be eaten as stand-alone meat with salad or vegetables, alternately it can be used in tacos, wraps, or sandwiches.
