I will work, in my opinion, but it must be medium rare and cut thin. If cut it will cook fast because it's on the lean side. Get a Choice grade beef if at all possible.

I saw some being cut up last week and it looked like some good meat. Did not get to get a taste.

Bring it to 125F, pull it, rest it then thinly slice against the grain. Great tasting beef no matter what you do with it, just don't over cook it! Tri Tip sammies are delicious.
