    Kind of an overrated cut anyhow.
  • Hard to find here in the Midwest too...I finally found it at a butchers. ..and had to ask for it...

    I understand if often gets ground up.

    Btw...the Butcher where I found them were FRICKIN AWESOME... When I told them I egg...they took me in the back...showed me the beef they are aging...and offered shots of Templeton before I way to guarantee repeat business.

    BYS1981  they have good flavor, but far from tender. They're on sale about every other week out here in So Cal.

    It's a great cut for fajitas, or to cook London broil.  Lots of flavor, good fat ratio.  Weird monk fish/hanger steak shape.  I'll buy them if I can find them and they look good.
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.  Love me or hate me, I am forum Marmite.

    They are getting more common in my area (GA). Publix and costco carrry them. Hit or miss at my Publix but always at Costco.

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    I live on the East coast and was able to have my supermarket meat manager order Tri-Tip.  It is IMPS 185C (untrimmed) and 185D (Trimmed). I found 2 markets that would order it.  One of them is getting enough sales that they order it for the meat display from time to time.

    I live in Lancaster, PA, and the 2 markets are Shady Maple and Stauffers.
