Beef. Sirloin. Tips.
This cut of meat DOES NOT EXIST. But there it is. Invented and wildly consumed, only in this great state of Massachusetts.
SPOILER ALERT: “Sirloin tips”, designed to mimic true “steak tips” (still mysterious, but actual trimmings from an actual filet), are nothing more than a fatty sirloin cut into strips.
People love them because you have to marinate the hell out of them, so they tenderize and get very flavorful – and the more surface area, the more “marinade” flavor.
Buzzkill, yes. Don’t get me started on TURKEY TIPS.
Lastly, I fail to see the appeal of Market Basket. But, then again, I fail to see the appeal of tips. I’m just not from here.
