Tri tip is a super delicious lean beef cut that can be cooked in numerous ways. I love to cook it in the oven. And the temperature I prefer is 375 degrees Fahrenheit. The cooking time for the tri tip is a crucial factor for a good result. Now the question is this. How long to cook tri tip in oven at 375 degrees? In this post, I like to share the answer and other tips for oven-baked tri tip roast.

How long to cook tri tip in oven at 375 degrees?

It takes 45 minutes to cook tri tip in oven at 375 degrees. This will render the beef cut exclusively tender and juicy on the inside and amazingly crispy on the outside. In 45 minutes, the meat should reach 145 degrees F inside which means a medium-well doneness. If you prefer a medium-rare doneness, bake only up to 140 degrees F. To ensure you get the desired doneness, use a probe thermometer at the thickest part since that part takes longer to cook.

What are other temp to bake tri tip in the oven?

Tri tip can be cooked much faster at 425 degrees F, taking 30 minutes to reach medium-well doneness. This temperature produces a roast that is a bit different than at 375 degrees. First of all, the outer coating turns out visibly thicker, tougher and browner. Those who prefer crunchy bites will surely love it. Another difference is a pink touch in the middle of the tri tip steak when baked at 425 degrees. It is typical of high temperatures where the exterior tends to cook faster than the center. At 375 degrees, the roast will cook more evenly so the meat will be the same color from outer edge to center. If you prefer the meat to be uniformly cooked and have little to no crust, you may try slow cooking the tri tip at 300 degrees F in the oven instead. The baking process will take about 1 hour and 10 minutes.
