Cardiff Crack Tri Tip & Pork Chops Combo Pack

Seaside Market ships its famous Cardiff Crack Tri Tip & Pork Chops nationwide on Goldbelly! Two of Seaside’s delicious meats: Seaside Market’s famous USDA Choice Tri Tip and Stone Porter Beer Pork Chops. Seaside’s Cardiff Crack Tri Tip is carved from the bottom sirloin, trimmed, marinated, and infused through a secret process with either Seaside’s exclusive Burgundy Pepper or Spicy Chipotle Marinade. Seaside Market’s bone-in pork loin chops are infused with a special blend of seasonings and Stone Brewing Company Smoked Porter beer.

Seaside Market in Cardiff by the Sea, California, is home to California’s famous “Cardiff Crack,” a Burgundy Pepper Tri Tip cut from the bottom sirloin so addictive it has attracted an intense cult following. The recipe was created by brothers Pete and John Najjar in 1986, who were experimenting with different spices and marinades. Founded in 1985, the independent, family-owned grocery store has succeeded in creating a one-of-a-kind grilled meat!
