I'm eating way too much red meat, but these things come out so good and are priced so right, I just can't pass'em up.

    Not that is a one nice cook.
    Whatever is left over slice real thin, hot pan to warm and then place on 2 warm corn tortillas with little sliced tomato, onions and jalpenos. yum yum yum..That is if you had any leftover :laugh:

    Hoss, I'm waiting for the price to soar on these things, just like it did on brisket. They are so economical......and every bit as good as a strip. Very tasty and wqell textured. Somewhere in the neighborhood of $5 a pound hereabouts, which isn't bad when compared to what you pay for strips.

    Would you believe that none was left over?? And, a HUGE creole tomatoe salad to go with it. I ate like there was no tomorrow.

    And Joan.......I didn't even have to crank up the John Deere or break out the tow chains!!

    They actually got "discovered" in California, as I understand it. Getting more popular all the time. Bobby Flay was cooking them on the cooking channel show this morning. I'm not really a big fan of his.....too much fru-fru for me......but he did keep the grilling of the Tri-Tips pretty basic......which, IMHO, is the only way to cook'em.
