Where can I buy tri-tip/picanha in the Newark area?

Okay, so I'd like to do a homestyleish rodizioesque grill this weekend, and I'd love to get some tri-tip to season up and throw on. Does anyone know where I can get some? The butchers near me are pork stores and can special-order but I was hoping to have it for tomorrow.

There's a Seabra's market in Springfield; I'm in Union and I'm going to give them a call later, but I was hoping that if they don't, someone might be able to point me in the right direction?

Bonus points if they have tenderloin at decent prices to wrap in bacon to grill as well.

  1. try whole foods in springfield. going to be a little pricy but really good beef. we do not call it tri tip in jersey though. I am pretty sure it is referred to as flap meat. I believe the technical term is the cap on a sirloin butt.
