Homemade Coffee Rub (Mix Well)
In a mixing bowl, combine kosher salt, black pepper, and 2 tablespoons of coffee rub.
Rub and coat the meat well on all sides. Pat the dry rub gently with your fingers so it adheres.
Put the meat on top of the wire rack over a baking sheet then cover with plastic wrap. Marinate and refrigerate for 8-12 hours.
Remove the tri-tip from the fridge. Let it rest at room temperature for up to an hour then preheat the oven to 425°F.
Preheat a large skillet over high heat then add oil. When the oil is hot and begins to smoke, add the tri-tip, fat-side down. Turn the heat to medium-high and sear for 2-3 minutes or longer without moving until browned. Carefully flip the meat and sear the other side until browned.
Put the meat on top of the wire rack over a baking sheet, fat-side up. Insert an oven-safe thermometer into the thickest portion of the tri-tip.
Transfer to meat to the oven and cook for 10-12 minutes per pound or until the food thermometer reaches 130°F.
Transfer the meat to a platter covered loosely with foil. Let it rest for 10 minutes before serving.
