I do...here is one my entire family LOVES ~ requests always come in for it.
Do you have one to share?
Plan ahead to marinate your tri-tip roast at least two hours before grilling time. The marinade contains tequila, sesame oil, mustard, balsamic vinegar, and garlic for optimum flavor.
3 to 4 pounds beef tri-tip with most fat trimmed off (a little on the bottom side is good)
3 Tbsp tequila
2 Tbsp sesame oil
2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
Mix tequila, sesame oil, Dijon mustard, balsamic vinegar, garlic, salt, and pepper in a small bowl and place in a large zip-top bag with tri-tip. Marinate at least two hours before desired grilling time.
Grilling Method: Pre-heat gas grill to 400 degrees F. Place meat on grill top-side down for 3-4 minutes for nice grill marks. Flip over and reduce heat slightly - close lid, if possible. To be prepared for flare-ups, keep an open beer by the grill and use as a 'fire extinguisher.' If no flare-ups occur, then enjoy the beer yourself! Cook for 20-25 minutes or until meat thermometer inserted in center reads 135-140 degrees F. for medium. Slice thin and enjoy with a fine Cabernet Sauvignon.
Yield: 6 to 8 servings

OOOOooooooo my hubby loves tri tip steak - I like prime rib steaks the best (yea I know... it's bad).
I love this recipe for shrimp:
1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
juice of 1 lime
1 shot tequila
1/4 - 1/3 cup of sweet chili sauce
1/4 tsp salt
Mix together the liquid and salt. Marinate the shrimp for 1 - 24 hours.

I love these burgers!!
Feta-Stuffed Chicken Burgers
POINTSŪ value | 5
Servings | 4
1 pound uncooked ground chicken breast
1 Tbsp fresh oregano
1/4 tsp garlic powder
7 Tbsp feta cheese, crumbled
4 small wheat pita(s)
4 piece lettuce, romaine
2/3 cup roasted red peppers, sliced (without oil)
5 small olive(s), black, sliced (about 4 tsp)
Preheat grill or broiler.
Mix chicken, oregano, garlic powder and feta together in a medium-sized bowl; divide mixture into four balls and then press them gently into patties.
Grill or broil patties until internal temperature of burgers reaches 165°F, about 7 to 8 minutes per side.
Serve each burger in a pita with a lettuce leaf, 1/4 of peppers and 1 teaspoon of olives.
**Tweeked: i bought a 2 kilo bag of frozen boneless, skinless chicken breast. thawed them then sliced, diced, and used the smaller container for my blender to "grind" it as much as possible. (( the butcher wouldnt do it for me when i tried to purchase fresh, and they dont sell ground turkey or chicken here in austria. had to get creative ~wink~ ))
3/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1T dried Oregano
3/4 garilc powder
mixed everything together in a bowl and made 8 patties.....this doubles the recipe. grilled for 7 minutes on both sides.
i didnt use the roasted peppers or olives instead i used lettuce, tomato, and red onion. topping the chicken burgers with 2 tsp. honey dijon sauce.
Honey Dijon Sauce - Taste adjustable, this is just the basic recipe.
3T Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp oregano
combine thoroughly and serve.

Here is another crowd pleaser!
SASSY'S GRILLED SUMMER FRUIT WITH SWEET YOGURT DIP
Makes 4 servings @ 3 points per serving
This recipe can also be made indoors using a grill pan. To grill other, smaller types of fruit outside, use wooden skewers that have been soaked in water for an hour.
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 Tbsp water
1 large banana(s), cut diagonally into 1/2-inch pieces
2 items plum(s), cut in half and pitted
1 cup pineapple, about four rings
2 items apricot(s), cut in half and pitted
3 medium strawberries
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup Horizon Organic Fat-Free Cherry Yogurt, or cherry-vanilla yogurt (or other brand)
1. Preheat grill. Mix together sugar and water in a small bowl; heat in microwave until sugar dissolves. Brush syrup on fruit.
2. Place fruit on a clean, medium-hot grill. Grill, basting with syrup occasionally, until slightly soft with markings from the grill, about 3 to 5 minutes. Turn fruit and grill other side until quite soft, about 1 minute more. (Note: Grill time depends on ripeness of fruit. Keep your eye on it and remove each piece as it is done.)
3. Remove fruit from grill and sprinkle with cinnamon; serve with a small bowl of yogurt for dip.
Yields 1/4 of fruit and 1/4 cup of yogurt per serving.
(( If any would like caloric info for these dishes just give me a PM. Happy to oblige! :) ))
