So…What is Tri Tip?
The tri tip cut used to be available on the West Coast only, but it has grown in popularity over the past few years and can be found in many membership stores across the United States. Tri tip can be called by different names (the California cut, sirloin tip and triangle cut); if you have a hard time locating it, ask your butcher to hook you up (any butcher worth his salt knows about this cut). More names and info here!
Why does it taste so good? It is lower in fat when compared to most cuts; it is the opinion of many that the leaner the cut, the tastier. Another reason is that tri tip has great marbling, which is the muscle fat found in beef cuts. This type of fat adds incredible flavor throughout the cut and the cuts of beef that have a higher amount of marbling receive a higher “grade.”
