Found Tri Tip locally at Kroger, Richardson, TX

  1. I was really surprised that my Kroger (on Coit Road in Richardson [N. Dallas]) actually carried Tri Tips. I asked the real meat man and he took to me right to the Tri Tips on the shelves. I asked if they always carry it and he told generally yes. However if I don't see any, get one of the older cutters and they will know what a real Tri Tips is. And, they will cut one for me. From the various pictures publish on here I can say for sure it was indeed, real Tri Tip. Today they were, $6#, I think. But he told me last week those types of meats were on special for 50% off!!! 

    Now that I know they are readily available I can wait. Maybe will go on sale again too!! I am having knee replacement surgery tomorrow so it will be a while before I will need them but i"m very anoxious to fix one. I am lusting over the pictures posted of the final results much like a teenage boy might lust over a Penthouse Magazine! 

    You might try asking one of the older store butchers if he can cut Tri Tips for you.... Younger one's might not have a clue.

  4. DW, I have found that a lot of Kroger's carry them. I have also seen some cryovac (pre-seasoned) ones at Sam's Club (today actually). WinCo Foods (nearest one to you is probably in Garland) generally carries some that are nicely cut. When I first started making tri-tips, it was a coarse sea-salt only rub and prepared on a direct heat grill until about med-rare...delicious!!

    I get tri tips in Florida, but I have to order them from our local grocer.

    They very seldom have them in the meat case.

    HEB in new Braunfels has tri tips all the time. You can't go Wong with that for a good roast beef.(rare is what I like) . Better of both worlds. looks like you got it going on .. Good job.[​IMG]
