I hope everyone enjoyed their Labor Day weekend!  We partied all weekend long and kicked off the weekend with a fabulous get-together on Saturday.  We had friends and family over and boy oh boy did we eat good!

 I made up some Mojo Beef Kabobs using a recipe I found on beefitswhatsfordinner.com as well as Grilled Beef Tri-Tip Roast with Caramelized Three-Onion Sauce {see recipes below}.

 My brother brought his famous Squash Casserole, we made up some corn and hot dogs {ALL BEEF!} for the kids and just had a fabulous time.  It was one of those parties where I was asked over and over for the recipes and I sent home Ancho Steak Seasoning with guests {always an interesting party favor!} :)  The food was AMAZING and reminded me once again why I would never make it as a vegetarian…

Let’s start with the Tri-Tip.  Now I have heard that Tri-Tip is mostly a California cut of beef.  I don’t know if that is true but believe me when I say if you haven’t tried Tri-Tip before, you need to make every effort to do so if the very near future.  Tri-Tip in every shape and form is a family favorite and is frequently grilled at parties year-round.  I usually buy them pre-seasoned and was excited to try this recipe and make my own seasoning blend.  Also, after reading that the Caramelized Three-Onion Sauce was a balsamic vinegar reduction – I was sold.  Love balsamic!  Here’s the recipe and trust me, you’re going to want to make this soon.

Beef Tri-Tip with Carmelized Three Onion Sauce

Ingredients

  • 1 beef tri-tip roast ( 11/2-2 pounds)
  • Caramelized Three Onion Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 thinly sliced large red onion
  • 1 thinly sliced large yellow onion
  • 2 bunches green onions, green party only, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 c balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 c packed brown sugar
  • Salt and pepper as desired
  • 1/4 c Ancho Steak Seasoning - see below
  • Ancho Steak Seasoning:
  • 1/4 cup kosher salt or table salt
  • 3 tablespoons ground ancho chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons dried granulated garlic
  • 2 tablespoons coarse-grind black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground thyme

Instructions

  1. To prepare Caramelized Three-Onion Sauce, heat oil in large non-stick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add red, yellow, and green onions, cook and stir for 8 to 10 minutes or until onions are tender and beginning to brown.
  2. Reduce heat to low; cook 12 minutes or until onions are caramelized, stirring occasionally. Increase heat to medium high. Stir in vinegar, cook 4 minutes or until reduced by half stirring occasionally. Stir in sugar; season with salt and pepper, as desired. Reduce heat to low; cook 5 minutes or until liquid evaporates and onion mixture thickens.
  3. Combine all ingredients for the Ancho Steak Seasoning in a small bowl; store in airtight container. Shake well before using.
  4. Press Ancho Steak Seasoning evenly onto beef roast. Place roast on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. (We used our gas grill with no problems.)
  5. Grill, covered, 25 to 35 minutes for medium-rare to medium doneness, turning occasionally. Remove roast when instant-read thermometer inserted into center of thickest part of beef registers 140°F for medium-rare, 155°F for medium. Let stand for 10 minutes. (Temperature will continue to rise about 5°F to reach 145°F for medium-rare, 160°F for medium.)
  6. Carve roast across the grain into thin slices and serve with Caramelized Onions.

Next up are the Mojo Beef Kabobs.  I love kabobs for parties – they’re so festive and colorful!  The Mojo Sauce is what really set these kabobs apart from any other kabobs I’ve made.  It was insanely delicious – so fresh and it would go great on any number of dishes.
