looks good your makeing me hungery may i ask what is tri tip we may call it something else here
Tri-Tip is a triangular shaped piece of meat towards the bottom of the sirloin primal. In some areas it's also called Triangle roast. The cut weighs around 2 1/2 to 1 1/2 pounds and there is only one per side of beef. In some areas of the country, like California, tri-tip is very popular and is very easy to find. In other parts of the country it is unheard of. Here in New England tri tip is very hard to find. Since there is only one piece per side of beef you don't get a lot of tri-tip roasts. So in many parts of the country, tri-tip is ground down for stew beef or use in ground beef. I've been told by a couple butchers here in New England that some of the tri-tip actually gets shipped out to the West Coast where it's more popular and they can get more money using it that way.
If you can get your hands on tri-tip, it is definitely worth doing so. It is the best of two worlds: it has the taste of state and the consistency of a tender roast. The only downside to tri-tip is that it has very little fat and you must to be careful not to dry it out.
Hope this answers your question.
