This recipe was great, even the kids liked it. I couldn't find fresh lemongrass in my grocery store, so I had used the already ground up stuff that comes in a tube. Instead of grilling, I put it in my wok and stir fried it with a little sesame oil. Tasted Great!
INCREDIBLE flavor!!! Served over bed of Jasmine rice at our house. Easy to make, & satisfying. If you can't find fresh lemon grass, look for it in the spice section -- it's still quite good, just slightly stronger.
Excellent flavor on the marinade, only substitution I used was soy sauce instead of the fish sauce. Read reviews saying fish sauce actually tasted like fish and I didn't want to chance it. Only thing I have to say is that this recipe is confusing because it lists it as 1 serving yet says serves 8?
We grow lemongrass as a natural deterrent for mosquitos - I have it in pots all around my deck because I am unable to use any sprays for insects. This recipe was great and it was the first i've seen using lemongrass!
My husband and kids could not stop complementing this recipe. I was a little concerned about the serrano peppers being too hot for my kids, so I opted to marinate this for only 30 minutes. I also grilled the whole tri-tip, vs. pre-slicing, opting to slice it afterward. Incredible!
I fond that even after marinading for 4 hours that the meat was kind of plain. Besides I have a tough time serving sirloin tip. If I cook it long enough to make my wife happy, it's way too tough.
