Learning about odd and variously named cuts of meat, like the tri-tip
Joyce Park stashed this in Food
Regional variations in the names of meat cuts make it difficult to find the lesser-known, often more economical bits of cow -- and learn what to do with them! This article and video discuss some goodies like the teres major, flap steak, and the beloved-in-California tri-tip roast.
I thought tri tip was beloved in Texas? California too I guess?
EDIT: Joyce assures me Texas is all about brisket.
