    Tri Tip?

    My wife purchased some cryovac steaks that were labelled tri-tip, but they don't look like any I have cooked before. Anyone know what these actually are and if so, I'd be grateful for any cooking tips.

    Thank you

    Those don't look like any tri tip I have ever seen. Look like regular old sirloin steaks

    How did you grill them and what were they like. They don't look like tri tip to me either.

    To my inexperienced eye they resemble chuck roasts.

    So I'm fairly certain they were top sirloin and I cooked them that way. Basically high heat cook for for about 12 minutes. The steaks had good flavor, but much more chew than I would have liked.

    In case anyone was curious, there is a great picture at the following link that shows a picture of top sirloin, tri-tip, and tenderloin together.
