Tri Tip Sandwich Charcuterie Board is an EPIC board with grilled tri tip and favorite sandwich toppings, like cheese, tomatoes, horseradish, and pickles!

The perfect charcuterie board contains a little bit of everything! If you’re not following me on Instagram, for my charcuterie/cheese board ideas, then do! I love sharing a variety of textures and flavors, from mild to bold and spicy, with lots of “theme” concepts.

For this board, think summer grilling!

We recently got a new grill, and we have a new thing we’re doing this summer. Prior to the new week, I think about the meals that we will be enjoying as a family and get my shopping done.

Best Grilled Tri Tip

We’ve been enjoying the Morton’s classic tri tip roasts Costco, so when the grill is heated up, we’ll grill 2 or 3 of these pieces of meat (depending on the meals and if we’re having company or a party ahead).

The secret to tri tip is to cut the roast in half. They grill more evenly, and remember to not overcook the meat. You can also microwave if you need to, but if you’ve overcooked it, there is no turning back!

Precook the tri tip, let rest and cool, and plop this baby in the fridge.

When you’re ready to make your sandwich board, slice thinly and place in a large bowl.

Ingredients needed for a sandwich board

Cooked, sliced tri tip, your favorite bread (we used baguette but you can use rolls), cheese, salami, tomatoes, red onion and pickles.

And then the toppings and spreads are everything!

How to assemble this board

Similar to assembling a cheese platter, putting together a charcuterie board or themed board is simple, but the choices can be overwhelming. Always ask questions at the store, deli shop, or butcher shop if you have concerns about what kinds of meats you want to include.

They can also assist you with the slicing–cured meats should be served paper-thin!

The meats can be rolled or folded on the platter.

28-inch Charcuterie Board

We bought this giant board (28-inches in diameter with a 2-inch lip) at Pier 1 last fall here in Bend, Oregon. It’s solid wood and SUPER heavy (just warning you).

This board is called: Courtland Hand-Carved Ash Gray Round Tray. Here it is in gray (click the affiliate link to buy). Rememember it says it is not food safe, so you can use parchment paper or season it like we did.

Buy the same board a little smaller – Courtland Ash Small Tray – 18 inches!

Here’s an 18-inch wine barrel wood board or a 24-inch hammered large round tray or a 26-inch stainless steel serving platter that you may also like! Check out the weight on these boards.

How to season a Charcuterie Board

If a wood board says it “not food safe,” you can lightly sand it down with sand paper, and rub down with beeswax and mineral oil.

We used this butcher block and cutting board oil conditioner after we lightly sanded the board down.

Or, lay down parchment paper! Easy peasy!

Some of my favorite boards are:

Cheesy Irish Sliders Charcuterie Board

Little Smokies in a Blanket Charcuterie Board

Salami Caprese Charcuterie Board

Thanksgiving Leftovers Sandwich Board [by Baker Mama]

Don’t forget the condiments!

The best part of a board is being able to choose which kind of spread you want on your sandwich.
