Flaming Tri-Tip

Some of you might remember Victorio C., he's the master of the fast-sandwich at Bay Cities Italian Deli and market in Santa Monica. Victorio has created dozens dishes and sandwiches over the past decades... and one of them is the "Tri-Tipper." Cooking the tri-tip is a spectacle. Victorio fries it in a wok, over an open flame. When he drops the tri-tip into the wok, flames shoot up. Off-Ramp's Queena Kim watched Victorio as he was gearing up to make tri-tip.
