Tri-tip, also known as triangle roast or culotte steak, is a relatively inexpensive cut of beef from the bottom sirloin. This cut is popular in southern California and some places in Texas. It is not for those of you who like meat well done, as, like flank steak, it will toughen with prolonged cooking. Slice it thin against the grain and serve with salsa, borracho beans, and warm tortillas or make grilled bread sandwiches with chipotle mayonnaise.
