Hilltop Butcher Beef Tips

I live in FL now and have tried to find the right cut of beef that the Hilltop butcher sells as beef tips.

I would make kabobs with them and they were always tasty. Anyone know what cut of meet I should be looking for? I have tried many that LOOK like them but never taste like them.

    It's call 'flap meat', that's a steak tip. FYI - Costco's carry that cut of meat.

          My husband is at Costco now checking out flap meat. Most likely will wait until the weekend to try it. I'll report back. Thanks!!

            I'd recommend marinating overnight, then grill it.

              Thanks Treb! That's what we did and they had the flavor and texture I remember.
              Thank you for solving my problem.
