Last week my images of this amazing tri-tip recipe were in the New York Times. The article is written by Kim Severson and hits on some interesting facts about cuts of meat and introduces the tri-tip to us east-coasters, as it seems to be quite rare out here. This California Beef Rub recipe that comes along with it made the meat, hands down. It is made up of coffee, salt, peppers, brown sugar, cloves, garlic and cinnamon. Such an interesting and bold mix of flavors- I loved it.  You can roast this or grill it- if you can, I strongly recommend the grill.
