So, the Costco ladies got me…while wandering about we tried some great tri-tip and bought it on a whim. Unfortunately, as soon as we got home I was faced with an entire tri tip roast when I though we had purchased individual cuts. The roast turned out well (30-35 minutes at 450 degrees) but because I wasn’t sure the success I would have, I thought a sauce might just save the day. I started doing some reading up and found a bunch of great wine-based sauce ideas but we had no wine on hand, so whiskey or beer became my deglazing agent. Since whiskey would likely have fried our faces off, I used some Left Hand milk stout and ended up making a salty, tangy sauce with nice aromatics.
