in every post i have ever asked for advice, i thank the people giving me advice...if i don't, i'd like you to point out where i don't thank people
As for subjective, the initial response i got on why a tri tip wouldn't work for a pot roast, was because it was too lean and didnt have the connective tissue, which would make for a dried out roast. My roast did not come out dried out, it came out tender and delicious.
also, the question i asked, was how to change the cooking time, in that this cut of meat was leaner, and weighed less, than the 3lb chuck i used before. so my advice asked was on how to modify that. i wasn't asking if it was possible to make a roast out of a tri tip, or asking for another suggestion of meat to use as a pot roast. especially considering i had already paid for the roast.
it was being implied that tri-tip should not be used for pot roast, when my butcher mike, a man who has ran his butchershop pete's fine meats here in houston for god knows how many years, said a tri tip would go fine for a pot roast.
My only point is a tri tip can make a delicious pot roast.
i simply respectfully disagree. i'm not being rude or anything, just offering my personal experience.
"If you disagree with the answers and the advice, sometimes a courteous "thank you" is the better reply."
I disagree. If i disagree with advice or question it, why would i not want to gather more information or ask *why* rather than just say thank you and brush the issue aside? I'm here to learn. If i disagree with something i'm not just going to smile and nod, im going to ask for an explanation or explain why i disagree
again, i'm not being rude.... i just like things clarified
