Spicy Tri-Tip Tacos with BBQ Sauce

Switch up your taco game with these spicy and flavorful Tri-Tip Tacos. Tri-tip, or Santa Maria cut, is the bottom part of the sirloin subprimal cut of beef. It’s somewhat triangular which gives it three points or tips (thus tri-tip), and is extremely tender and filled with beef flavor. We kicked this up a notch with help from our spicy Notorious P.I.G. rub, then topped it with our hot honey Bee Sting BBQ sauce. 

Spicy Tri-Tip Tacos with BBQ Sauce

Difficulty: Easy
Prep time: 60 minutes
Cook time: 40 minutes
Serves: 2-4


1 lb.  Tri-Tip 

2-3 T

Notorious P.I.G. Pulled Pork Rub
Tortillas, street sized
2 cups Shredded Lettuce
1/2 cup Tomatoes
1/3 cup Queso Fresco, crumbled
2 T White Onion, minced
2 T  Cilantro
1/4 cup Bee Sting Honey Chipotle 



  1. Place the tri tip on a sheet tray and season with Notorious P.I.G.  Allow to sit out at room temperature for 1 hour. 

  2. Preheat grill to 225° F.

  3. Place the tri tip on the grill, over indirect heat.  Cook for 18 to 20 minutes, or until temperature reaches 125° F, for medium rare.  Remove the tri tip from the grill and rest for 10 minutes.

  4. Increase temperature to 450° F.  Sear the tri tip 2 minutes per side, over open flames.  Remove from grill, rest on a cutting board for 10 minutes, then slice thin, against the grain.

  5. Assemble tacos: tortilla, lettuce, tri tip, tomatoes, queso, onion, cilantro, and a drizzle of BBQ Sauce.  Serve warm.
