Never heard of them on here specifically from one store

Be interesting to see if anyone has ever cooked one from there.

Just kidding, kinda.

They dont sell them fresh but carry 3-5 lb frozen tri tips. I think its called Hy Vee Amana Beef. I know beef is beef but never have heard or tried that kind B-4.

I have asked for tri-tips from Hy-Vee before, but all they have is a sirloin tip roast, not the tri-tip. They are still good, but not tri-tips.

I am thinking not much different than any other but will probably cost you more. Last week we had them locally at 3.49 lb this week they jumped to 3.69 lb. These were not from Hy-vees

I've never seen a TT that big, even here in Texas.

Yeah, I'll bet it's not really a tri tip unless there's two of them in that package. No single tri tip is that heavy.

I have cooked a tri-tip from Hyvee and it was pretty good. I am guessing/hoping that there are more than one in that pack that is 5.91lbs. I would guess there are 2 in there. Any other photos?

Sadly, around here the going price for tri-tip, if you can find it, seems to be around that price or $5.99/lb maybe. They are so rare that I don't even know typical pricing like I do with other stuff. I think the Costco's around here carry them but I am not a member so I don't know the pricing there.

I have gotten them several times here in Cedar Rapids, but they are not cheap. Beef may be beef, but that labeled Amana beef is always exceptionally good. The Amana Colonies are about 20 miles South of here and famous for the beef raised on their farms. It is premium and the worst cattle raised there generally grade out at choice. Any cow that has poor yielding calves will not be in their herd for long. The breeds they raise are BIG livestock and a 6 pounder would be in the range of possibility. The ones I have bought have been regularly near 5 lb. This is Iowa and I'm sure they are finished in the lots on a corn mixture feed after having spent time in the pasture. I'm not a farmer, but was raised in a small Iowa town surrounded by farms and even this amateur can tell you the Amana herds are good looking cattle. BTW, if you are ever in this area and like German food, be sure to visit any of the restaurants in the Colonies, you will not be disappointed.

No way that's a single tri tip. The largest one I've ever seen was a hair over 3.5lbs untrimmed. If they are peeled and neatly trimmed, they are usually between 1.5 and 2.25lbs each. Unpeeled and untrimmed, around 2.25-3lbs each.

Sirloin tip roast is far more likely in this case, or 2-3 tri tips. If one piece of meat in there, it is NOT tri tip.

I bought a Fresh Tri-Tip from Hy-Vee a couple months ago out of the meat department and I was happy with it. It was about 3 lbs and only cost about $12-15 total. It turned out great. I live in Nebraska and from what I hear we have certain types of meats more readily available.
