    That looks like a winner to me.

    I waited on tables at Applebee's to finish college. I'm more partial to the Outback Special as for as a "not so expensive hunk of meat" that is pretty darn good.

    Thanks for the input. BTW, although I hesitate to say so publicly, oh well, here goes -
    I had one of the best restaurant steaks at Applebee's that I have ever had. As I mentioned that to others, I got a lot of raised eyebrows ( and probably instant write offs as any kind of connesouir) but I gotta tell it like it is.

    I'm away from home for work. Applebee's is on the way back to the hotel. I typically treat myself to one overpriced meal. Rest of the week is fast food, multiple meals off of one delivered pizza, and sammiches.

    And I am no doubt well aware of the grain on them dudes.

    I just had a steak at Applebee's. Very thick, with about 1/8" medium-rare waaaaaaaaay in the middle. Sucker came fast, though.
    First, what the hell are you doing ordering steak at Applebee's? Second, what the hell are you doing at Applebee's?

    Cutting into steaks is easy, just remember to cut across the grain. That will leave you with some triangle shaped corner pieces and maybe a smallish steak. I cut two whole tri-tips into steaks and cut those odd pieces up for stew.

    Sure. I don't mind eating them for you as well.

    First time tri-tip as a steak

    My local market had choice Angus Tri-Tip from Harris Ranch on sale for $4.99/lb so I bought 4. Just me tonight and I didn't want to make a whole tri-tip. I have seen tri-tip steaks so I cut some up into steaks and made one. Seasoned with McCormick's Montreal Steak Rub and cooked for 5 minutes (flipping 4 times David Parrish ) on screaming hot GrillGrates using the flat side . Wow! Served with sweet white corn on the cob and leftover potato salad from Memorial Day. And a nice Malbec!
