This year, Redwood Creek Wines joined the Arbor Day Foundation in planting thousands of trees in the nation’s forests. You can celebrate Arbor Day (or any day!) with a signature recipe from Redwood Creek Wines: Tri-Tip with Cabernet Sauvignon Marinade. The recipe pairs perfectly with Redwood Creek’s Rich Red Blend, which has flavors of dark cherry, brown spice and cloves.
Tri-Tip with Cabernet Sauvignon Marinade Paired with Rich Red Blend
- 6 large garlic cloves, roughly chopped
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 cup Redwood Creek Cabernet Sauvignon
- 3 tbs. balsamic vinegar
- 3 tbs. soy sauce
- 1 tbs. honey
- 4 sprigs thyme
- 2 ½ lbs. beef tri-tip
In medium mixing bowl, whisk garlic cloves, salt, Cabernet Sauvignon, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, and honey together. In a heavy-duty sealable plastic bag, combine mixture with tri-tip. Seal bag, pressing out excess air, and place in a shallow baking dish. Marinate in refrigerator, turning occasionally, at least 4 hours. Prepare grill. Grill meat to desired doneness. For medium-rare meat, grill until center of tri-tip reaches 145°F (approximately 20-25 minutes). Reserve remaining marinade. Remove tri-tip from grill and let rest 15 minutes. In a small sauce pan, bring remaining marinade to boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Slice meat and top with reduction sauce. Pair with Redwood Creek Rich Red Wine.
