Yield: 6 servings



1 beef tri-tip roast (1-1/2 to 2 pounds)

Lime-Honey Glaze:

2 Tbs honey

2 Tbs fresh lime juice

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp dry mustard

1/2 tsp salt

Tropical Fruit Salsa:

1- 1/2 cups chopped papaya or mango

1/2 cup chopped plum tomatoes

2 jalapeño peppers, seeded, finely chopped

2 Tbs sliced green onion

2 Tbs fresh lime juice

1 Tbs chopped fresh parsley

Combine glaze ingredients in small bowl. Combine salsa ingredients in medium bowl.


Place beef roast on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, uncovered, 35 to 45 minutes for medium rare to medium doneness, turning occasionally. Brush with glaze during last 10 minutes.
