Wikipedia: Tri-tip
The tri-tip is a cut of beef from the bottom sirloin subprimal cut. It is a small triangular muscle, usually 1.5 to 2.5 lbs. (675 to 1,150g) per side of beef.

The scientific name of this muscle is m. tensor fasciae latae, inserted in the fascia lata, the connective tissue covering the m. quadriceps femoris, also called quadriceps extensor, a group of four muscles which in turn insert in the patella, or kneecap, of the animal.

What do you call a cow with 4 legs? (self.tipofmytongue)
submitted February 28, 2017 by georgecena1337
Alright so there are 4 parts to this joke:
What do you call a cow with 4 legs? (A cow)
What do you call a cow with 3 legs? (Tri-tip)
What do you call a cow with 2 legs? (This one has 2 answers: lean meat OR your mom)
What do you call a cow with 1 leg? (Steak/stake)
What do you call a cow with no legs? (Ground beef)
But I could have sworn that the cow with 4 legs had a better/second answer that wasn’t just “A cow” and it was way more funny.
