  • 2 1/2 lb tri tip roast
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp ground pepper
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Use a roasting pan with a rack on the bottom.
  • Rub the roast liberally with the Santa Maria rub. Place meat in the prepared roasting pan.
  • Roast in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and continue roasting meat for another 10 minutes, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads 125 degrees F (for medium rare). Let rest for 10 minutes before thinly slicing against the grain.


  • Make sure you test the temperature of the meat to cook to your preferred temperature. Don't rely on time to cook a perfect roast.
