Anyone in Ontario ever get tri tips. Went to two butchers and they had never heard of the cut.

    Where in Ontario? St Lawrence Market in Toronto would probably have some. I work near by, I can check in the new year.

    It is called triangle roast or sirloin tip here. I think when you but with a sirloin tip you get more then the tri tip. Here is the name of the muscle if it helps: tensor fasciae latae

    Thanks, I've seen sirloin tips but they are usually 4 plus pounds. People on the forum talk about 2.5 pound tri tips.

    I can't remember the name of the butcher in St. Kitts but he is one of the best. Shoot Tim from BGE an e-mail and I am sure he will help. He works with BGE.ca and you can get the e-mail from the web site. Primeggister or Chocdoc should be able to help as well. Don't want to point anybody to the other forum but...

    Checked St Lawrence Market, tri-tip was readily available, ranged from $7.99 - 11.99 per pound.
  • Jasper, that's a lot!  In San Diego, CA you can usually find them on sale about $2.99lb.  The worst is about $6.99.

    This Market is expensive to begin with, I only buy from there if I need something the grocery store doesn't have.
