2 1/2 - 4 lbs tri-tip roast
Asian Chimichurri
1 1/2 cups fresh cilantro leaves and stems, packed
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, packed
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, packed
4 garlic cloves, peeled
1 inch ginger, peeled, roughly chopped
4 green onions, roughly chopped
1 jalapeno deveined, seeds separated, roughly chopped
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon fish sauce (may sub soy sauce)
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Asian Steak Marinade
1/3 cup Vegetable oil
1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons fish sauce
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons Asian sweet chili sauce
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
2 tablespoons Asian Chimichurri (above in directions)

Asian Chimichurri: Pulse the cilantro, basil, mint, garlic, ginger, green onions, and jalapeno (without seeds) in food processor until coarsely chopped, pushing sides down as needed. Add olive oil, rice wine vinegar, fish sauce, toasted sesame oil and salt and pepper and continue to pulse until finely chopped and well combined. Taste and add desired amount of jalapeno seeds for additional heat (optional). Remove 2 tablespoons Chimichurri to a large resealable plastic bag. Refrigerate the remainder separately.
Asian Marinade: To the Chimichurri in the plastic bag, whisk in all of the Asian Steak Marinade ingredients. Pierce steak all over with a fork and add to marinade. Massage marinade into steak and seal bag. Refrigerate 5 hours up to overnight, turning bag occasionally.
Grill: When ready to grill, remove Chimichurri and steak from refrigerator to bring to room temperature (about 30-45 minutes). Grease and preheat grill to 400 degrees F. Sear roast for 3-5 minutes per side, cover, and turn heat down to 350 degrees F. Grill for 15 minutes, flip, cover, and cook an additional 10-20 minutes, depending on the size of your steak cut and how well done you want your steak. Watch closely that your temperature stays around 350 degrees
