  • 1 ½ cups Holland House Marsala Cooking Wine
  • 1 4 oz can tomato paste
  • 2 medium shallots minced
  • 10 large garlic cloves minced
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 1 Tablespoon minced fresh thyme
  • 2 teaspoons freshly cracked black pepper
  • 2 1 ½ pounds Tri Tip Steak
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 16 ozs white button mushrooms sliced


  • MARINATE STEAKS: In large measuring cup, whisk together marinade ingredients until combined. Pour half of marinade into 9 x 13-inch pan, add steaks, and pour remaining marinade over steaks. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • GRILL STEAKS: 15 minutes before grilling, preheat grill to high. Remove tri-tip steaks from marinade and reserve marinade.
  • Place steaks in the middle of hot grill and cook 6-7 minutes per side. Remove steaks once they have reached desired doneness, and tent steaks with foil.
  • MAKE MARALA MUSHROOMS: While steaks rest, make Marsala mushrooms. Melt butter in large skillet over medium high heat. When butter is melted, add mushrooms and cook, stirring often, until mushrooms release most of their liquid, about 5 minutes.
  • Add reserved marinade to pan and bring to a low boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until sauce has thickened, about 5-8 more minutes.
  • Slice steak against the grain, smother with marsala mushrooms, and serve.
