Finally after reading so many raves about the once-a-month bbq at each How's location, I finally went to the one in San Marino yesterday. I don't know what took so long since it is so close to our house but at least I went. I picked up a whole tri-tip and brought it home to have for dinner later in the evening.
We put it in the microwave just long enough to warm it but still leave it pink and let me tell you, this thing was absolutely delicious. We had it just like it was seasoned on the grill, nothing added, and it was great. For $15, this was well worth the money. I'd say it weighed about 3 pounds and considering the excess fat had been trimmed and it had been cooked over an open grill so all the work had been done already, this was a bargain.
Definitely I am going back, and make up for all the lost time!
By the way, the sandwiches and hot dogs looked great too, but the whole tri-tip seemed like the best deal to me.
