WTF is up with Tri Tip these days?
 
Tri Tip was $8.69 in Publix today. Are you farkin' kidding me! That's Rib Eye territory!

Just like every under-appreciated cut of meat, when the word gets out and it becomes more popular the price skyrockets. It's supply and demand.

I'm picking some at Vons tonight. They're $4.99 untrimmed.

That's pretty darn high, unless it was Prime? I'm seeing it at $6.99 lb pretty regularly out here now, and I thought that was high.

yea, all you out of ca state folks have ruined it for us.
now its near $6 for untrimmed at costco.
i used to buy it regularly but no longer.:mad:

$8/lb here for choice at Safeway.. for $2/lb more I can get rib eyes :shock: They rotate it through their weekly adds so that it's $3.99/lb for trimmed choice tri tips at least once a month.

The real shocker was seeing it for prime tri tip roasts at whole foods for $14.99/lb. :shock:

Costco was about $7.50 today. Going to have to watch for sales.

Under appreciated? That's a CA staple, my albersons grocery store cooks them up over wood every Sunday and packs them to go for dinner.

With that being said, I can find it 3.99-5.99 and 9.99 trimmed prime grade.

Yeah, word got out that it was a good inexpensive cut of meat. I think the hipster crowd caught wind of it, and thats all she wrote.

K-JUN 03-10-2013 06:26 PM

That does sound pricey but around here if you ask about tri-tip you usually get a blank stare. And I am not talking about Win Dixie but places that should at least know what it is.:wacko:

benniesdad 03-10-2013 07:25 PM

Price is through the roof here in Georgia also. Problem is that since it is not a well know or very popular cut, it never goes on sale. Hopefully the word won't get out on chuck eye steaks or I am really screwed.

ubp_sanity 03-10-2013 08:20 PM

I've only found it once up here in Canada. And I wasn't paying $10.99 per pound. I almost got it when I thought that was per kilo, which would be a great price.

Of course this was at a fancy store, but it's also the only place I've seen it.

Neonnblack 03-10-2013 09:36 PM

You mean tri tip.. this tri tip :D

and did someone mention ribeye?

Its not that bad around here. That tri was around 5 or 6, trimmed and marinated.

At Raleys in N. Nevada/ CA, trimmed Angus tri tips seem to go on sale for $4.99/lb, and are a must buy at that price. I agree that when cuts become popular, the prices get crazy. The same thing happened to flank steak too.
