Surf n' Turf done easy! One of our favorite summer meals is a classic surf n' turf. Pitt Boys BBQ delivered with this Tri-Tip and Mussels combo. The chimichurri is great with both and adds an amazing contrast to the buttery tri-tip.

Can't find Tri-Tip? No worries! This recipe works great with any cut of steak.


  1. Season your tri tip with Spanglish Asadero's All Purpose seasoning
  2. Season the mussels with the Fiery Citrus Habanero and the Surf & Turf blends
  3. Prepare the chimichurri:
    1. Use a food processor or finely chop all of your herbs.
    2. Combine equal parts of the herbs with minced garlic, red pepper flakes, lemon zest and juice, and the olive oil
    3. Set aside for later
  4. Prepare the grill, we used the charcoal side of the Triple Play® grill/smoker
  5. Grill the tri-tips to your desired liking
  6. Place all the mussels on a wire rack for easier grilling
  7. We used pre-steamed mussels so all I had to do was essentially heat them up
  8. Once everything is done grilling, top each mussel with a scoop of chimichurri
  9. Slice your tri-tip and top with the chimichurri as well
  10. Serve with garlic bread and enjoy!
