Oven Tri Tip with Farro and Veggies

Nick and I don't have a BBQ or a spot to put it.... which is a bummer only if we let it be!!  This is a fabulous way to cook Tri Tip and its just delicious!

Tri Tip: 
Costco, Safeway, Whole Foods, they all sell decent Tri Tips.  We change the marinade every time so its never the same.  I actually can't claim the rights to the marinade--- thats Nick's job and since this is Kristie's Kitchen... so use what you like because I am really bad at making marinades.  Nick usually uses some mixture of: Very Terraki Sauce, Soy Sauce, and spices like salt, pepper, paprika, red pepper flakes etc.  We marinate the day before and let it sit for 24 hours before cooking. 

Bake at 425 degrees for 30 minutes for medium rare, or 40-45 minutes for a more well done Tip!  Since in my family, we have 1 person who likes it red and another person who likes the tip a little more done, 35 minutes is perfect and I eat the end pieces and Nick gets the center! 

Cook as directed. I buy my Faro at Costco, its cheap and comes in a big bag and lasts forever, a delicious healthy grain with any meal!

Vegetable Meadly:
You can use whatever you have on hand with a little creative seasoning Vegetables are just delicious! Tonight I'm using: 
  1. Yellow Onion (1/2 of the onion, chopped)
  2. 2 Green Bell Peppers chopped
  3. 2 Cups of chopped Crimini Mushrooms
First saute the onion in olive oil until tender, add in bell peppers, saute a bit more than the mushrooms and saute a few more minutes.
Salt, Pepper, and a bit of Soy Sauce are simple and taste great!
