We find it a little chewy when prepared as instructed on the packaging, but when you use a sous vide, that changes the whole game and it renders a delicious and tender tri-tip roast! While we often cook our steaks medium or medium rare, we think when it’s cooked a little longer on a lower temperature, that’s the golden ticket!
