How do I cook this 2.6 Tritip roast *without a grill*?

I have a 2.6 lb tritip roast, all seasoned and ready to throw on the grill.... but just discovered that the grill is out of fuel. How should I cook this thing in the oven? I do not have a grill pan (until this exact moment they always seemed silly).

You can roast it like any other roast. I'd suggest marinating it in wine, celery, carrots and onions overnight, searing it in a bit of oil on the rangetop and then sticking it in the oven for about 2 hours at 250 or so in a covered casserole dish. Yum. You'll get a gravy out of it that way, too, and a really tasty one depending on how fatty the cut is.

Do you have a meat thermometer? Stick it in a 350-450 oven for 30-50 minutes (check temp early) and shoot for ~140-145 F for medium. The roasting temp you choose really determines the texture of the outer surface of the roast, personally I would use a higher temp for a more roast-like outer surface.

Do you have an oven-proof pan/skillet? This is pretty much how I do mine every time (except I coat it in a boatload of spicy brown mustard plus s&p).

(The mustard is so good btw. Makes a crust.)

Into the oven it goes, thanks soooo much! That chowhound link was exactly what I needed. If I could give you beef through the internet, I totally would.
