Jerk Tri-Tip with Orange Glaze and Bulgar Wheat Salad

The Tri-Tip cut is a favorite of chefs. The meat is flavorful and the marinating makes this cut butter knife tender. The natural nuttiness of Bulgur Wheat salad makes for a nice accompaniment. *Other steak cuts would work for this dish too, such as Wild Idea Flank Steaks, Flat Irons or Sirloins.

(serves 4)

Steak, Marinade & Glaze:

1 – 1 lb. Wild Idea Buffalo Tri-Tip Roast
3/4  – cup pineapple juice
2  – tablespoons soy
2 – cloves garlic
2 – tablespoons brown sugar
2 – tablespoon jerk seasoning, see below OR store-bought spice can be used as substitute.
¼ – cup orange marmalade


  1. 1.     Prepare Jerk seasonings, and store in a container until needed. *Spice mix will

keep for months.

  1. Rinse Tri-Tip and pat dry. Place roast in a plastic bag or glass dish.
  2. In a blender, mix pineapple juice, soy sauce, garlic, brown sugar and jerk

seasoning together, and flash process. Pour half of the marinade over the steak, and massage into the steak. Cover and rest for 2 to 8 hours. Set aside or refrigerate remaining marinade for glaze until ready to use.

  1. Preheat oven to 450°.  In a cast iron or heavy ovenproof skillet, over medium high heat, heat the pan. Shake excess marinade off roast and place in hot pan. Rotate roast four times, searing each turn for one minute. Place seared roast in preheated oven and roast for 6 minutes.  Remove roast from oven and place on a cutting board, cover with foil and rest for 5 minutes before cutting.
  2. While roast is cooking, place remaining marinade in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat medium low and allow sauce to thicken slightly. Whisk in orange marmalade and again bring to a boil, stirring occassionally. Reduce heat to low, until ready to serve.
  3. Slice steak, serve with bulgur wheat salad and drizzle with orange glaze.

I made this tri-tip roast recipe, but left out the marmalade (too sweet for my taste). It was absolutely delicious! Very tasty cut of bison and the sauce was sweet and tangy. I would never have thought of combing a teriyaki-type sauce with jerk seasoning – what a delicious surprise.
