I took it in and got enough
Today, we’re going to talk about tri-tip. It’s a popular cut of steak in the Central California area. It was originally prepared with “Santa Maria Seasoning” (of Santa Maria, Ca), but it’s basically just a great streak to use on grills. The popular use now is in a tri-tip sandwich covered in barbecue sauce.
Kallie has been talking about it a lot since I’ve met her, but I got to try an authentic sandwich at Firestone Grill in San Luis Obispo, Ca. It truly was a unique sandwich and definitely worthy of praise. Something about it was very familiar though, and I’m fairly certain i’ve had *something* similar to it here on the east coast. I’ve head some other possible names for the cut, like “tip steak”, so maybe it’s just known by something else here, but I haven’t been able to find a restaurant in the area where you can get a tri-tip sandwich. If you can, let me know!
