Tri Tip Roast and Potatoes
Featured Pinch Tips Video
This meat has a lovely, simple seasoning that will satisfy all of your meat-and-potatoes eaters.
NOTE: We cut back on the cooking time for both the meat and the potatoes, so be sure to adjust the cook time for your particular appliances. The Crew and I ended up microwaving the potatoes for a total of 8 minutes, and the meat/potatoes in the oven for just 30.
- 4 lb
- tri tip roast
- 1-2 tsp
- seasoning salt
- 1 tsp
- garlic powder

1Set oven to 425*F. Place Tri Tip roast in a large roasting pan with the fat side up. Season well with the spices and seasonings from above. Set aside as we prepare the potatoes.
2Scrub the potatoes and cut off any nicks, then prick each potato with a fork. Microwave all the potatoes on a plate for 15 minutes. This par bakes the potatoes so they can sit around the roast and be done on time with the meat.
3Place the potatoes around the roast. Spray the potatoes with Pam and sprinkle with sea salt.
4Place roast and potatoes in the oven. Set Timer for 40 minutes. Meat is done when: Thermometer reaches 140*F for medium rare. 150-155 for medium and so on. Let roast cool 10 minutes then carve and serve. Comes out juicy and the potatoes are soft and fluffy inside with a delicious skin.
