Tri-tip Bob's Way

It's no secret I love tri-tip.  My brother Bob got me started on it. One of my early posts was my way of cooking it. This is my brother's way, and a quick way too! Begin by seasoning your steak with your favorite seasoning. Bob uses salt, pepper,  and garlic powder. I sometimes add onion powder Next get your grill smoking hot, as hot as it can go. Add the tri-tip and close the cover. Cook the meat for 5 minutes, then turn over. After 5 minutes turn off the gas or cut off the oxygen to your charcoal.  Allow the meat to rest on the grill for 20 minutes while the grill cools. Remove the steak and allow it to rest for 5 to 10 minutes. Slice and enjoy.

Pizza Sauce

I wanted pizza for dinner but had no pizza sauce. This makes a robust flavorful sauce that holds up well with homemade pizza crust. It is also a thick sauce that doesn't make the crust soggy while baking. Ingredients: 1 can 15 ounces diced tomatoes (drained) 1 small can tomato paste 1 tablespoon olive oil ( I used a Tuscan infused oil) 2 cloves garlic 2  teaspoons Italian seasoning 1 teaspoon sugar (optional) 1 tablespoon basil  Drain the canned tomatoes, saving the juice to thin the sauce if you desire. Combine all the ingredients in your food processor and pulse until you have a thick sauce. If the sauce is too thick for your liking, add some juice a tablespoon at a time until you are happy with the consistency.  Add the sauce to your favorite pizza crust, bake and enjoy.
