Trying to find Tri Tip - Page 2

post #21 of 31

I'm gonna look at Publix tomorrow maybe they'll get them down here too.

I've seen them on sale at a few local "butcher" shops. Sadly, they aren't that cheap around here. There is a RD about 15 miles away or so, and I'd like to get down there one day and see all the stuff they have.

Just called Trader Joe's in Philadelphia and they carry them. Woo-hoo!

Funny, if you check the weekly specials for any southern, or central CA grocery store, they sell untrimmed tri tip for under $3.00/lb.  Why can't the rest of the country get the same product for similar price?  Gouging for over trimmed meat isn't my idea of a good deal.  Leave the fat on, charge less for it.

 was in Publix yesterday and they had one Sirloin Tri Tip and it looked just like what at Tader Joe's is labled Tri Tip.

There are a few places that carry them around here but they only seem to be in the expensive butcher stores. I have never seen them in the grocery chains, Walmart or Sam's which is where I normally purchase my meat. The butchers are just way over priced it seems around here.

Finally got to a Trader Joe's here in Jersey and found some at $5.99 lb., averaged just under 3 lbs. each. They are definitely trimmed but looked good so I picked up a couple. They had at least a dozen that I saw, along with some other nice looking beef roasts. Some of them were already seasoned, but I picked 2 that were not. Now, just got to figure out what to do with them. icon_biggrin.gif Feel free to chime in people. biggrin.gif I'm all ears.

Publix has Sirloin Tri-Tips advertised at 5.69 a lb starting tomorrow.  At least they have them advertised here in Delray Beach.

I have seen whole Tri Tips at my local Sams Club.

I looked at my Publix & nothing. The Sam's I go to is in Lakeland & I have never seen them there either. I will keep looking because it seems that there is enough of a demand that they will be all over Florida soon. I hope!

I only see them occasionally here. I keep looking since I've been reading about what all of you do with them.
