Tri-tip is unheard of around me. I've asked and no one carries it. We do have short ribs and brisket in abundance.

I don't understand why different areas don't have certain cuts of meat readily available...I mean a cow is a cow right?? So why is any different in availability when they butcher for store shelves?

I haven't checked the last place yet but I asked yesterday and that guy said it didn't sell well so they dont carry it...
I also asked if the london broil (that's how it was marked and packaged which I thought was sillly) was the same thing and he said no.
I will ask when I go tomorrow.... I'm on a mission now, and will find one if I have to go on a butcher store tour!!!!

You might be better off making some phone calls. You'll save a lot of gas and time.

Let's start with definitions

Flank Steak

Skirt steak

Verbiage in the Skirt steak definition tells us why diaphram comes into the conversation.

London Broil

Anyway, I have seen skirt steak labled diaphram. Using the definition from Wikipedia, this is possible, but tougher than skirt steak that is not part of the diaphram.

Anyway, it makes great fajitas.

The only place I have found tri-tip is at Trader Joes. There it comes already marinated. I was not crazy about it personally. It is an odd shaped cut so it does not cook evenly.

Top round or shoulder steak will do the trick. Be sure to slice the meat thinly and you shouldn't cook it past medium. It will get tough if it's well done.
