How To Cook Tri Tip in the Oven

Many people don’t realize that you can put a dutch oven pan into the oven. Most just want to put the pot over medium high heat on the stove top and call it a day. While a heavy bottomed pot over medium is good, cooking it in the oven adds a whole new level of tender. 

The more veggies that you can cut up and add with a few cups of water or beef broth, the better. Just be certain to add in some bay leaves for flavoring, too! 

Dutch Oven Tri Tip with Vegetables

You’ll find that some recipes call for adding olive oil to the dutch oven but I really don’t think that it’s necessary. Putting oil in a dutch oven is fine but this recipe really tastes great with beef broth as the main liquid. It’s hard to heat the oil in a way that wouldn’t just make the whole dish super greasy. 

Make certain that you cut up the veggies into chunks after you clean them. This will help them cook faster and also make it easy to serve them as well. 

Dutch Oven Roasted Tri tip

The other tip that I think is really important is that you season the roast lightly with salt and pepper. This not only adds a ton of flavor but it can help tenderize the meat, too. Because the last thing that you want is a tri tip that is chewy and hard to eat. 

More than likely we’ve all had that at some point in time which is what brought you here to this recipe. As long as you follow along with the simple recipe below, you should end up with a flavorful and delicious dish.

You can also cook this on the stove in a pan as well but it’s so much better in the dutch oven. There’s just something about that flavor and taste that you’re not going to find anywhere else.

Keep in mind that this dish is best served warm. You might want to let the meat rest for a couple of minutes once it’s cooked but don’t be shy about diving in. If you do have leftovers, all you have to do is heat the roast lightly with salt and pepper and enjoy.
