We take the tri tip off all our sirloins before cutting them, warehouse spec. Usually sell them as thin slice steak.

You can peel the top sirloin cap off and call it a tri-tip, it's a close brother to the cut. Otherwise search your catalogue for bottom sirloin. It's not the flap, which is also bottom sirloin, but I know in our catalogue it simply says bottom sirloin. We use the flap for skirt.

Tri tip is different from the cap....way more marbling
And Flap is not skirt

I don't mean to sound like a butt here but the label of the meat is suppose to match the cut

I know, Joe, but I don't write the rules. Lol. You are right though. Our skirt is inconsistent. We put out outside, inside and flap as skirt to meet demands. Not my idea, I promise you.

we sell 10 avg. per day. Tri-Tips not Coulottes. we sell the coulottes as thin top or stir-fry. we peel all our Top sirloin. Last time I got one off a top sirloin was working with hanging beef, I orderthe tri-tip in cases that are labeled Beef bottom butt (tri-tip)

I love Tri- tip! I stuffed 3 of them last night with bacon, provolone and covered in teriyaki... Yummm!!! Check it out on my blog. I got a step by step from prep to plate. One thing I know is that when you start BS-ing your customers and they can't trust you, then you are not a good cutter. To many of us in the meat dept want stupid customers. I would rather have a happy customer return regularly instead of making a high gross sale and become untrustworthy. I see my customers as family because they look to me to feed theirs. My family is worth more than a few cents more a pound or a pile of scrap boated up. Don't accept the "Corporate" mentality because it's up to us to keep it honest!

I'm not exactly a veteran but the only thing I've ever seen a tri tip made from is the flap off a top butt. We even get prepack seasoned tritips and they're flaps off the sirloin too.

Kroger in Ohio can get tri-tip I work for them in Michigan and we share a warehouse. I am sure you can get it from somewhere if the big corporate monotony has it.

Sherwood has the National Beef individually cryos. They are running in the 6.50 range which makes it a tough sell up against choice strips or ribeyes.

Can anyone direct me to a resource on how to cut a tri tip from a hind quarter, or a subprimal?
My butchers have cut them from clods, and we are not getting them right.
Thanks!

Sell it all year around, I would like to put roasts out but it isnt in our set !?!. They want the pre packed marinated ones instead. The key is to cot the steaks properly. It is easy money.

Never saw one in NC-people from Texas always wanted them and I had to move them to Top Butt or Round Tip instead.
