A tri tip steak is an individual slice of tri tip roast—but don’t you dare cut your tri tip into strips before cooking so it has the fancy word “steak” in it! Just say no!! After you’ve grilled or baked your tri tip, you’ll be slicing it. If you want to call those slices “tri tip steak,” knock yourself out. But I’m Californian.
