My husband makes a delicious tri-tip. It's a recipe from BBQ USA, and it's an amazing tri-tip recipe with all the fixins. One of the fixins is this garlic bread. I think my dad ate half of it and my brother ate the other half. As amazing as the meat is, I think they ate more bread than meat! It's so simple to make, and it is delicious!

1 loaf french bread
10 T butter
5 cloves garlic, minced
Slice the french bread in half horizontally.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Once it's melted, add the minced garlic and cook for another minute. Remove from heat. If you don't have time or don't want to use the stove, just mix in some minced garlic with the melted butter.
Brush the butter on both halves. Don't be shy! Drench that bad boy! Use it all.
Place it under the broiler about six inches away from the source and bake for 2 minutes at a time. Check on it frequently so it doesn't burn. Once it's golden and starting to brown, take it out.
Let it cool slightly and slice.
