Cardiff Crack: Tri Tip By The Sea

By  | 

The days are getting warmer, inviting us to step outside and into the water once again. Take the coast to the Encinitas beach community of Cardiff, and enjoy a Saturday full of surfing and SUP boarding followed by a delicious meal. Tucked in the small town bordering Solana Beach resides Seaside Market, a deli and market known for its Burgundy Pepper Tri Tip.

This world-famous market sells USDA choice tri tip, marinated with a “secret process” that includes infusing Burgundy Pepper, also known as Cardiff Crack.

The meat can be purchased in bulk and stored in your freezer, to have ready-to-eat meat for the next time you want to impress your dinner guests. Thaw the meat for a full 24 hours, sear both sides for 5-7 minutes, wait for the caramelization process to start, grill to your desired preference, transfer to a cutting board, and enjoy a restaurant-like dinner in the comfort of your home.

To-go packages come in packs of 1-4 tri tips, marinated in either the classic Burgundy Pepper, or the special blend Spicy Chipotle. Each tri tip is approximately 3.25 pounds, so invite some friends over and enjoy!
