I've seen those thick "steaks" of tri tip too RF. Although they are sliced against the grain, they have to be durn tough because they're too thick.
If they packaged it in very thin slices I'd buy it, but not until they do.

Very thin slices would be awesome too. Then I can do shabu-shabu. :))

I have never tried it, but I have seen it marinated, grilled, sliced on the bias and served medium to rare. It looked excellent.
RB, grilling is the way to go, IMHO. I've roasted them at high heat in the oven before and they are very good that way, but I prefer the taste of grilled. If you get a chance, you should try one. It's very tender as long as it's not overcooked.

Here's one I grilled back in Feb of this year.

I like to grill them too. I've also done them on the rotisserie over a bed of coals.

That sounds really good, too. I've often wished I had a rotisserie.

Beautiful Cheryl ! I wish I still had a charcoal grill like you have. Our gas grill does a better job on them since I started using a smoker foil packet pierced with holes containing some mesquite chips that have been soaked in water. I've also used my stove top smoker for a small one, and then browned it under the broiler. Good eats to be sure.
