Tri-Tip Beef Sliders

2-3 lb. tri tip roast
4 small pickling cucumbers or 1 large cucumber, thinly sliced
1/2 white onion, thinly sliced
1 cup apple cider, white or red vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
24 rolls, split
1/2 cup barbeque sauce
Salt and Pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Season tri tip roast with salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet. Cook until the middle of tri-tip reaches 130-140 degrees with a thermometer. (Note: approximately 10 minutes per pound.) Let roast rest for 5 to 10 minutes. Thinly slice.

In a large bowl, add cucumbers, onions, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. Mix well. Cover; refrigerate for 1-2 hours for best flavor.

For the sliders spread barbeque sauce on the inside of each roll. Top with some of the tri tip slices, cucumbers and onion slices. Serve immediately.
