Tri Tip Sandwhiches

January 17, 2007

     We got about 2 inches of sleet and snow here in North Texas this morning.  So for lunch I dug in the freezer.  I pulled out a vacuum sealed serving of grilled tri tip. 

     I brought some water in a pot to a simmer.  I placed the sealed tri tip in still frozen.  Heating this way is a quick way to defrost and heat without over cooking the meat.  Meanwhile, I put a 6 inch section of a baguette in the oven to warm and crisp the crust.  After about 10 minutes, the tri tip was thawed and heated through. 

     I sliced the bagette and placed the thin slices of meat on one side.  I poured the juices from the vacuum bag onto the top half of the sandwich.  I added some prepared horseradish and had a great quick lunch.
