Santa Maria-Style Colita De Cuadril

This was the best home-cooked steak I’ve had, including a sous vide steak I tried a few weeks later. Super flavorful, perfectly cooked. The trick is the reverse-sear, which Kenji describes well.

My butcher had Colita De Cuadril, instead of Tri-Tip, which was also just an unbelievable cut of beef. I’m sure the Tri-Tip is also great, but this cut would be worth seeking out.
