    it's a triangular cut.  there's only one cut that is tri-tip, but that doesn't mean people aren't selling something else, or confusing sirloin tip for tri-tip,

    @cmkratt - I've never seen a tri-tip that looked like that. What part of the country are you in?
    It's marketed by the Stingray Scallop company.
    ahhhh. the elusive stingray scallop. I've tried to make fried scallops out of stingray wings. they were good but not the same. 
    You really have to pay extra for the "Diver" stingrays to make it worth it.

    Yeah mine always look like large triangles and then recently at Cosco I've seen that now they look like strips and I'm wondering they're still labeled try tip but they look nothing like the larger tri-tip. so now they offer both the triangle tri- tip and the strip tri- tip I am watching for you guys to buy the strip so sticking with the triangular size.
    More than likely it's just a whole tri-tip cut up into steaks. I see those in the stores all the time. They don't make great steaks. They're better cooked whole.

    Are those the wet packed or the dry packed? I never mess with wet packed diver stingrays. Dry is the only way to go.

    The Tri-tip in my pic is from HEB north of Houston. They're usually triangular shaped. This one wasn't.
