So, I recently tried pre-marinated, ready-to-cook beef tri-tip steak from Costco ($6.49 / lb). To my pleasant surprise, not only was it easy to cook, it tasted really good.
I’ve also had Costco’s boneless ribeye steak ($16.99 / lb) which isn’t pre-marinated and though the results can taste good as well, it doesn’t taste $10 / lb better!
Here’s a pic of the tri-tip easily cooked to perfection.
and here’s a pic of boneless ribeye (or maybe this was of NY steak). Either way, the pre-marinated tri-tip at Costco is just as good, if not better, and a much better value.
