What is a Tri Tip?
This is a cut of beef from the bottom sirloin and it’s full of flavor. It’s also a lean cut of meat too, it is very tender and easy to chew.
It is actually called a Tri Tip because of its triangle shape and it does very well cooked at high-heat. This makes it a great option for the Ninja Foodi or the Air Fryer.
Tips for Making Ninja Foodi Tri Tip:
It’s best to season the tri tip about 15 minutes before cooking to let it rest for a bit before adding it into the Ninja Foodi.
It will then be cooked using the air crisp function of the Ninja Foodi or your Air Fryer for 15 minutes at 400*F. It is important to rotate the steak about halfway through the cooking time as well.
The Tri Tip can be cut to fit in the basket of the Ninja Foodi or the air fryer that you are using.
The temperature to reach is right around 145*F, this produces a medium-well steak, if you want it more rare then you would need to adjust the cook times.
Once it comes out of the air fryer, let it rest for a few minutes, then you will cut it against the grain with a sharp knife.
It should easily cut against the grain and be very tender.
Can you cook this in the Ninja Foodi Grill?
This can be cooked in the Ninja Foodi Grill, Ninja Foodi Air Fryer, or Ninja Foodi Multi-Cooker. Each of these machines has a setting for “Air Crisp”, which will be used for this recipe.
