Having a meal prepped is huge for our family. Often times with late practices by the time we get home we are starving. This marinade came out really good. I have mixed feelings adding onions to the kbobs, because I like them really cooked down, but they do add some texture and flavor.
Grilled Tri-Tip Steak with Molasses Chili Marinade Recipe
(Adapted from Cookin Canuck)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup molasses
3 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp rice vinegar
5 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
1 tbsp peeled and chopped fresh ginger
1 tbsp chili powder
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 lbs tri-tip steaks
In a large glass bowl or container, whisk together brown sugar, molasses, soy sauce, rice vinegar, garlic, ginger, chili powder and freshly ground black pepper until the sugar is dissolved.
Place tri-tip steaks in the marinade and turn until completely coated. Let marinate for about 1 hour, covered, turning the steak occasionally.
Preheat grill to medium-high heat and brush with canola oil.
Place the steaks on the grill (do not discard the marinade) and cook until desired degree of doneness is reached, about 5 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the steaks. Remove steak from the grill and let rest for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing.
Transfer the marinade and any juices collected from the cooked steaks to a small saucepan. Bring to a low boil and let cook for about 10 minutes. Serve with the steak.
