Both "M-x find-grep-dired" and "M-x find-grep" shall work with remote
directories out-of-the-box.

If you want to call `start-file-process' directly, you must point
`default-directory' to the remote host:

  (let ((default-directory "/"))
    (start-file-process "grep" (get-buffer-create "*grep*")
                        "/bin/sh" "-c" "grep -e thierry *"))
