    Hi Colleen! In some areas the Tri-Tip is called a Bottom Sirloin Butt. But if that doesn't work, please feel free to substitute a boneless shell steak roast or a flank steak. It'll work just great.

    I hope that helps...and enjoy!

    Smiles,
    Vickie

    I can't seem to find the cut called 'tri tip' around here. Any other suggestions as to what the cut of meat may be called?!

    ps: The picture is gorgeous and the recipe looks quite simple. A winning combination!
