Tri-tip is/was a California thing. It's the cut of beef my m-i-l taught me to make for roast beef when I was a young married. I say was since Costco is everywhere, and they carry it in the meat department.

I made a ham in the Instant Pot. OMG - it was so good! It was a 9 pound spirally sliced ham. I had to try off about 1.25 pounds so it would fit in the Instant Pot.

I also pan seared salmon using this technique. It was excellent too. https://www.americastestkitchen.com/...-seared-salmon

Tri tip was born in Santa Maria, CA. If I'm not mistaken, it gets its name because it is a triangular roast of beef, the bottom end of the sirloin.

I made a avocado cream sauce (think of it like a pesto made with parsley and avocados). I served it over pasta and roasted asparagus. It was delicious if I can say so myself

I had a bacon cheese burger but what made it different than most was it has onion jam spread on the bun(never had onion jam before)and cheese was made with truffles in it. or as they called it truffle cheese. It was very good and I had it while in Chicago recently.

Chicken & dumplings made using tortillas for the dumplings rather than scratch drops. It worked but just not the same.
