      Nice - will have to check it out - are they uncooked? I hope so. I've been wanting to try this cut of meat for a while...

        Saw them at Trader Joe's this weekend and they were uncooked. Although, I think they came already marinated. Not sure if you can get them plain or not.

            Chapparel Market in Clarendon probably has it. Their location in Falls Church had it last week. (across from Banh Mi DC on Rte 50).

            Trader Joe's has both plain and marinated tri-tip. Last Christmas I served their Santa Maria marinated tri-tip and it was fabulous.

        The Costco at Pentagon Row has it. But you'll need a membership, or know someone who does.

          I have found tri-tips at most Costco's....if not, any butcher should be able to cut it...it is also known as triangle roast...
