Spice-Rubbed Grilled Wagyu Tri Tip With Chimichurri

  • 1 pc Wagyu Tri Tip
  • 1-2 Tbsp dark chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar (dark is best but whatever you have on hand is fine)
  • 1 ½ tsp dried oregano
  • 1 ½ tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil


  1. Bring tri tip to room temperature
  2. Combine all seasonings thoroughly and taste for salt and pepper, adjust to your liking
  3. Pour and rub the olive oil on the tri tip and sprinkle the spice mixture, rubbing in thoroughly on both sides.
  4. Place the tri tip on a lightly oiled, VERY HOT grill, cook for 4-6 minutes on each side for medium rare to medium.
  5. Take off the heat and let rest


  • ¼ cilantro, chopped finely
  • ½ cup parsley, chopped finely
  • 2 tsp red chili flakes (fine ground is best)
  • 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup or more olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper


Combine all ingredients and taste for salt and pepper. Adjust seasoning to your taste (I like it more fluid so I add more olive oil & balsamic vinegar)
