Tri-Tip

I found this small tri-tip at a grocery store this morning. I decided that it was to good to pass up.



Seems small compared to the ones I have seen others post. Every one the butcher had was 2-3 lbs. He then told me that for tenderness, I should only purchase the smaller size. He also said tri-tip is part of the sirloin.

What size do you guys buy ?

Now I have to figure out how to cook the thing.

Usually the one's I get from Costco, when they have them, run in the 2-3lb range.

I usually keep it pretty simple on the cook, season with K-salt, cracked black pepper and granulated garlic, maybe some gran. onion or onion powder, sear directly over lump charcoal on all sides, finish cook indirect to an internal temp of 125-130 for med rare, let rest about 10 minutes, slice thin against the grain.

Some of the most flavorful beef I've ever had.

I'd like to find some smaller cuts, then I could take them to lunch all for myself

Good luck Cliff, do it like Bruce said and you won't be disappointed

P.S. Slice it like Helen said
