  • 2 Pound Tri Tip Roast
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Tbsp Coarse Sea Salt or Kosher Salt
  • 12 Turns Fresh Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Seasoned Salt
  • 1/2 cup Water or Chicken Broth


  • Preheat Oven to 275 Degrees
  • If you are using the Cosori Air Fryer Oven I used the Roast setting and also turned on the low speed convection fan.
  • If using a temperature probe insert lengthwise in the thickest part of the roast.
  • Season Roast with Salt, Pepper, Garlic, and Seasoned Salt. Pat in the spices.
  • Rub Roast with Olive Oil
  • Place roast on roasting pan with a rack to keep roast elevated off the bottom of the pan.
  • Pour 1/2 Cup of Water or Broth in Bottom of Roasting Pan.
  • Place roast in oven and roast at 275 degrees for about 42 minutes. This can take up to an hour. Cook meat to an internal temperature of 128 degrees for rare to medium-rare.
  • Once the meat has reached the desired temperature it is time to sear the meat. This can be done under the broiler, on a medium-high grill or in a skillet.
  • Sear time on broil in the Cosori Air Fryer Oven was 10 minutes per side.
    Sear time under the broiler or on a grill would be 5 minutes per side.
    Pan searing would be about 5 minutes per side.
  • Once the meat has been seared meat must rest. I find 20 to 30 minutes is sufficient.
  • Slice meat across the grain with the knife on an angle.
  • Enjoy this wonderful cut of meat.


When cooking roast in the Cosori Air Fryer Toaster oven I used the Roast setting with the low speed convection fan.
Cook time in a conventional oven is about 42 minutes to an hour.
Cut meat across the grain for most tender results.
