Karina Jones is a real-life ranch wife in the Nebraska Sandhills and one of the most highly sought-after speakers in the cattle industry nationwide!
This isn’t just an ole Tuesday, welcome to Tri-tip Tuesday on Ranch Raised!
This is a recipe that was shared from a listener in Georgia. Dave Walker and his family have been so sweet as to send my family a big box of Georgia goodies and now he has shared his recipe for beautiful Tri-tip cut of beef. Since May is beef month, I just have to share this with all of you.
Dave Walker starts with the tri-tip marinade which had my mouth watering! In a big ziplock bag combine:
3 limes and 1-2 lemons squeezed, throw the rind and all in there.
2 teaspoons of (Ricks) Salt
Cayenne pepper if you want a little spice
3-4 Chopped fresh Jalapeños
1 beer or pop (Dave says beer seems to make it more tender)
A shot of orange juice if you have some handy
Black pepper to taste
Add the tri-tip to the bag and let it hang out in the fridge for a few days.
This is important
Sear on high heat in the smoker for 5 minutes or so on each side.
Reduce heat to 300 ish cook to an internal temp of 125-130 (no more or it is tough). Remove tri-tip from your smoker, wrap in foil or butcher paper and a bath towel for 20-30 minutes. They put it all in a small cooler while it hangs out for this time. You might want to watch a YouTube video on how to properly slice a tri-tip because there is a bit of science, meat science that is, behind the correct technique!

Karina ranches with her husband, Marty, and 4 children near Broken Bow, NE. She grew up in western NE, with roots also in southwest SD. The cattle industry and raising kids is her passion.
Watching the cattle industry go the path that it has gone, she could no longer sit quietly at home checking cows, fixing fence, and doing all the everyday tasks wondering when some else was going to make it all better. As she became more active and outspoken on industry issues, she was asked to join the R-CALF USA staff in September 2020 as the Checkoff Petition Campaign manager. That position transcended into her current role as full time Field Director for R-CALF USA.
You can hear her almost every Friday on Your Ag Network’s Hot Barn Report, where she deep dives into cattle industry issues and industry reforms. Listen to Ranch Raised on a Your Ag Network hometown station or www.youragnetwork.com where she talks about her daily life on the Jones Ranch.
