Yeah they’re killing me, but I just can’t pass up a good deal. This week I have to go back, and if the price is still down, I’ll pickup another Prime Rib Eye (can’t have too much steak on hand).
You’re probably right about theTri-Tip, this is the first time I’ve seen that in Costco. And the name originated, or became popular, in Santa Maria CA. In fact there is a bar-b-q technique and grill named for this town/city. The 32 days and the resultant loss is what bothered me initially because these roasts only run about 2.5 – 3 lbs. Now I’m going the individually dry bag the whole bunch. Let them age for 21 days, open one, and check for flavor and loss. That’ll provide me with a baseline.
The tenderloin bags should do the trick as each piece is about 6″ X 10″ and should fit quite nicely. I will keep the Forum apprised of my progress along with pictures.
