I accidentally hit this thread and you boys were talking about tri-tips. I first found out about tri-tips 30 years ago while visiting a rigger friend living in Cali an hour north of LA. We visited a week and must have had 3 or 4 tri-tips and I loved then grilled or smoked.

I got back to Wisconsin and talked to a couple butchers and if I recall, they never heard of such a thing. This thread makes me want to check out the area butchers in TN. I am sure buy now they have heard of them.

On a subsequent trip 20 years ago I went down and bought some for a treat for their family. I did the grilling this time and made them tougher than shoe leather. I should have pulled them off when the chef told me to.

For someone who only grills I think I will learn more things on this thread.

Santa Maria by any chance? They rescued this cut of meat and developed a whole BBQ style for it.

El Rio, but I have no idea where Santa Maria is, but kudos to them for their work in the process. I have to try to find a local butcher in middle Tennessee. Maybe take a Google link describing it so he can rescue one for me.

Rice Pudding & Eggs

Got my pressure cooker today and after giving it a pressure test I made my first two things. Hard boiled eggs, not exactly rocket science but ya gotta start somewhere, the eggs were perfect. Then I made Rice Pudding which came out really well, my wife said it was very good but that she did not particularly care for it. It was not something she grew up with but I did and I will be enjoying it in the coming days.

Egg Custard

My mother made custard when I was a kid, 55 years later I finally made my own in the pressure cooker. It turned out really well. I also made a breakfast casserole in it this morning and Mongolian Beef the other night, all very good.

Valentines Day fare for my bride, Lasagna and Cheesecake. Both cooked in my pressure pot, I really like using it.

First Corned Beef

A day late I know however I was very pleased with the results. Cooked entirely in my Pressure Pot. The meat was under pressure for 85 minutes and the vegetables for 5. Veggies could have cooked for less time and I will note that for future reference. I have had this cooker for a month now and am very happy with the results.

I got hooked on them watching those early morning infomercials, the one on tv was too pricey, I have an Instant Pot I use mine all the time. I have done a full rack of ribs and cheesecake in mine, pasta dishes are really east too and it makes great rice pudding. Worth looking into. Hope you are doing fine!

I have the 6 qt. 9 in 1. Bought it directly from Instant Pot, free shipping and 10.00 cheaper than anyone else. I read a lot of the reviews before settling on IP. There is no shortage of recipes on the web to work from.
