I've heard that a silver tip roast is a cut of sirloin steak. I think sirloin is not a kosher cut and silver tip is big with the kosher butchers. I have noticed that silver tip roasts are a cheaper cut of meat, so I'm thinking it might be a top round but I don't think round steak is kosher either. So, what is it and is it the same for all butchers? Wanna see some great prices, if you own the business, that is? http://www.citarella.com/default.asp I'd love to see their financial records. I'd bet that Citarella's is one very profitable business. This week, Waldbaum's, a local suoermarket, is selling Black Angus Whole Sirloin Tip roasts, USDA Choice...sold in cryovac for $2.49 a pound. Is that a silver tip? I've bought cryovac meat from Fairway and didn't like it because it had that flavor of meat that has been in plastic wrap too long. Have any of you found that too? Another question, lately some martkets are selling meat from Australia. What is you experience with that. It's usually cheaper.
