Directions

  • Step 1

    Set Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker to 132°F / 55.6°C

    Rub tri-tip very generously with spice rub mixture on all sides. Vacuum seal or use the water displacement method (with ziplocs) to bag the tri-tip.

    Place in water bath and sous vide for 6.5 hours.

    • Finishing Steps

    • Step 1

      Remove from bag and dry extremely well.

    • Step 2

      Spread a very, very thin layer of mayo onto the tri-tip (I like to use a silicone pastry brush for this).

    • Step 3

      Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium high heat until VERY hot

    • Step 4

      Add avocado oil and then the tri tip. Sear for about 30 seconds on each side until well browned.

      Remove from pan, slice and finish with smoked Maldon salt.
