Fall Grilling - Tri-Tip with Chimichurri
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
2 tablespoons plus ½ cup olive oil
2 teaspoons kosher salt, plus more
2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper, plus more
2 pounds tri-tip steak or two 1-pound sirloin steaks
2 garlic cloves, finely grated
2 cups finely chopped parsley
½ cup finely chopped cilantro
¼ cup red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon agave nectar
Mix sesame seeds, paprika, 2 Tbsp. oil, 2 tsp. salt, and 2 tsp. pepper in a small bowl to combine. Rub all over steak and let sit at room temperature 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare a grill for medium-high, indirect heat (for a charcoal grill, bank coals on one side of grill; for a gas grill, leave one or two burners off). Place steak over indirect heat, cover grill, and grill, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of steak registers 115°, 20–30 minutes. Move steak to direct heat and grill until lightly charred, about 2 minutes per side, or until an instant-read thermometer registers 120° for medium-rare (temperature will continue to rise off heat). Transfer to a cutting board and let rest 10 minutes before slicing against the grain.
While steak is resting, combine garlic, parsley, cilantro, vinegar, agave nectar, and remaining ½ cup oil; season with salt and pepper. Serve steak with chimichurri.
