Panino Di Manzo

Panino Di Manzo is a modification of an old family favorite. Jeremy Kreck, Winemaker for Mill Creek and grandson of the winery 's founder, and an avid foodie, spent considerable time tweaking the sandwich to pair perfectly with the Mill Creek 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon.



Tri-Tip Roast
Mill Creek Marinade
Buttermilk Blue Cheese Dressing
Balsamic Braised Onions
Soft, yeasty rolls
1 to 2 cloves minced fresh local garlic

Begin several hours, or the day before, by marinating the tri tip. Also make ahead, the Buttermilk Blue Cheese Dressing, Garlic Butter and the Balsamic Braised Onions. You can also cook your bacon ahead of time.
When ready to eat, grill the tri-tip and slice the meat thinly. Retain all juices that run from the meat and keep the sliced meat in a heated pan in the juices.
To Assemble:
