Recipe: Picanha (Brazilian Tri-tip Barbecue)
Serves 4 to 6
DirectionsIf you can't find tri-tip, look for top sirloin cap. Trim excess fat off the meat. One side will generally be covered in a layer of fat; do not remove it, just trim it down to about 1/8". Mix the salt and garlic together to make a paste and rub it all over the meat, adding a little olive oil if needed to help it stick. Leave the meat to marinate for at least two hours, turning it occasionally.
Heat the barbecue to the highest setting. When ready to cook, scrape excess salt off the meat and place on hot grill, fat side up. Do not turn over until the first side is nearly burnt. Turn once and check doneness with a meat thermometer; medium should take about 35 to 45 minutes, depending on the meat's thickness.
Remove from grill and rest five minutes before carving.
Ask the Agent: This Month's Question
Have you got any last minute tips for my open house?
Buyers want to imagine their things in your home. So Rule #1 is detach and de-clutter. Now's not the time to get emotional about possessions.
Rule #2 Do a last-minute check for crumbs on the kitchen floor, full garbage cans and laundry hampers, and dust bunnies you missed the first time.
Rule # 3 Replace damp towels with fresh ones, and plump the pillows on the beds. Visitors will open closets so ensure even your closets look neat.
Rule #4 Ditch the plug-in air fresheners and replace them with natural smells such as freshly-baked cookies or lemon wax. Many people are allergic to commercial fresheners, and if you use them, you risk causing a reaction.
Rule #5 Make all your rooms look comfortable - rooms with too much furniture (or too little) can make it hard for buyers to visualize whether their furniture is a fit.
