What is the tri-tip cut of beef

• The name comes from the triangle shape (tri) and that it is at the tip of the sirloin (tip).

• It’s not so much a steak as it is a skinny roast, but you can grill it like a thick steak. Just don’t overcook it.

• The tri-tip is a cut of beef from the bottom sirloin subprimal cut.

• It is a small triangular muscle, usually 1.5 to 2.5 pounds per side of beef.

What is Braising

• Braising (AKA pot roasting) is used to cook large cuts of beef, such as a roast or brisket, with a small amount of liquid. •This slow cooking method is ideal for tenderizing less tender and typically less expensive cuts of beef.

• The best cuts of meat for braising are heavily exercised cuts, such as those from the shoulder, leg, or rump of the animal.

• Also ones that contain a lot of connective tissue like the chuck, shank, brisket, and oxtail.

• It will take about 1 1/2 to 3 hours to become fork-tender.

• As soon as it’s fork-tender, it’s done.

• Cooking any longer will dry out the meat with braising, just a little effort yields amazing results.
