Butt Fat Beef Tip

Kat Draper


One week I purchased a pork butt roast that had not been trimed properly by my butcher. He gladley corrected the mistake but I kept the fat...thinking that I would do something with it. Well, this last weekend I purchased a Beef Tip Roast....I wanted to create a recipe for the gilling contest. I gave this idea a try and it was really good. I hope you give it a try and enjoy it as much as my family did.

How to Make Butt Fat Beef Tip


  • 1Let Beef Tip set at room temp while preparing rub. Combine in a small bowl: Sea Salt, Black Pepper, Oregano and Onion Powder. Rub the roast with the rub evenly distributing on roast. Top with Rub with Parmesan. Cut the Garlic into 4-6 pieces and cutting a slit into the roast, insert the garlic into the roast.
  • 2Gently cover the top and sides of the roast with the Butt Fat trim. Using Butcher string securly tie the Butt Fat onto the roast.
  • 3Heat your grill to apx 300 degrees, using indirect heat method. Place your roast in a simple pan; I used a pie tin. And slowly cook until desired doneness. We like medium rare which took about 2hrs on our gas grill.
  • 4Once cooked to your level of doneness. Remove from the grill and let rest for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • 5Meanwhile using the jucies from the roast in a sauce pan, bring to a simmer. Add wine and cook of at a simmer for 5min. Add 2Tbl flour and stir to create a rue; slowly adding beef broth. Simmer on low for 3min before serving.
  • 6Thinly slice roast after resting onto a platter and top with finishing sauce. Serve a sliced beef or makes great sandwiches on kiser rolls.
