I don't post here much, but read everyday. So, yesterday, while visting my folks in Granada Hills, my dad says he is going to run to Howe's. I, jokingly say, if they have the special Saturday BBQ get some tri-tip sandwiches.
Being that it was Sunday - I did not have my hopes up. But, surprise, the BBQ was going full blast due to an open house at the local fire dept.
He brought home three delicious sandwiches, dressed only with a slightly spicy BBQ sauce.
He then made the mistake of mentioning that they had whole tri-tips for sale too. We (three girls) urged him to go back and get two for dinner. He did, and we had a wonderful dinner of tender, juicy, flavorful tri-tip - some of the best I have ever had.
Thanks Chowhounds for alerting me to this great find!!
