Orange Marinated Bison Tri-Tip

Fun fact: my dad’s a butcher & my step dad is Argentine… So girl knows how to grill. This bison tri-tip is medium rare perfection & bursting with flavor! I’m a big fan of focusing on what I CAN eat, and really enjoying it. A beautiful piece of meat is no exception.

  • 1.5lb bison tri tip
  • *note you can also use grass fed beef tri-tip, I like bison because it's often a more affordable grass fed option!
  • 1 large naval orange
  • 3 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp coarse sea salt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil or lard (I use fatworks) + more for basting
  • 1 small onion


  • Place tri tip in a bowl or container.
  • Peel and slice an onion.
  • Rub meat down with fat.
  • Sprinkle tri tip with salt and garlic powder all over.
  • Squeeze orange in to bowl, add coconut aminos, then onion.
  • Toss and mix, rubbing down meat.
  • Cover and place in fridge for an hour (or until you’re ready to cook, even overnight).
  • Remove meat from fridge at least 30 minutes prior to cooking.
  • Heat one side of your grill to 450F.
  • You're going to grill it a few minutes on each side of the meat, once it begins to cook it will get it's triangle shape and have three sides.
  • Place tri-tip on the hot side and brush with fat.
  • Close lid and cook for 6 minutes.
  • Turn it to the second side.
  • Brush with fat again, and close the lid, cook for another 6 minutes.
  • Turn over to the third side and cook for 3 minutes.
  • Move to cold side of the grill, opposite the side that was turned on.
  • Lower the heat on the side that is on to low.
  • Let it sit for 10 minutes. Turnover.
  • Remove from grill.
  • Let it sit another 5 minutes before slicing.
  • We had this with sliced radishes tossed in olive oil & fresh mint.
  • Delectable.
