New food – Tri-tip

Tri-tip is a cut of beef most common in central California. The first time I had it was there and the two other times I had it was there too.

Tri-tip  cut of beef used to be chopped into hamburger – it’s the cut from the bottom sirloin subprimal cut whatever that is.

One story says that a barbecue champion got the idea to cut it into slices rather than chop it into burger meat,

Another story says they figured this all out at a Safeway Grocery Store.

Whatever – today you find tri- tip all over Central California and other places too. The meat is seasoned with salt, prpper and garlic salt.

Here is a tri-tip dip I enjoyed for lunch.IMG_6444
