      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.

          it looks like they are marinated. anyone know where one could get a unmarinated tri-tip? thank you.

            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.

              just got back from trader joes in foggy bottom - they had 2 different marinated tri-tips - no plain. plan on hitting the costco tomorrow.

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