Slab o Strip Steaks fer 2.99 a pound...WOW!
 
Local grocery chain....The "hood" chain advertised the entire NY Strip slab at 2.99 a pound. I thought for sure it was a misprint. Went out there today, and it was fer real! Couldn't find a grade on it, but even if it's standard/commercial grade, I'll take it for that price! Check out the label...........WOW! Oh yeah! This one has some nice marbeling and a nice cap on it. I'm happy!:biggrin1:

It's tomorrow Bob.....cut me a steak, please! :-D

Our local store has those and deep discount ribeye slabs as well sometimes. I'm always very tempted but haven't done it yet. Please let us know what you think of the taste/quality when you eat one. Maybe you'll help me pull the trigger.

campdude 01-06-2013 08:23 AM

That's a fantastic deal. WOW!

jeffsee 01-06-2013 08:59 AM

We don't get deals like that, but those ribeyes I grilled for NYE came from a local butcher shop and ran $6.49/pound. Considering that all the big chain stores were charging $11.98/pound, that $6.49/pound was great. My wife isn't as fond of the taste as I am, saying she probably likes the taste of the "extras" in the bigger chain cuts.

bluetang 01-06-2013 09:08 AM

WOW is right! I'd be all over that.

bigabyte 01-06-2013 09:16 AM

One of our local chains does something similar once or twice a year. It's worth it.:thumb:

woodbutcher1 01-06-2013 09:20 AM

Wow is right.
I get them for the same price locally every so often. I cut the wife's portion to 10 / 12 oz. Cause that's what she wants, and mine? ....... a man sized portion. Good stuff.

The market nearest to me sells only "USDA Inspected" beef with no grading. I have done quite well "inspecting" for myself. At $2.99 #, I would be buying one. And probably going back for a few more if it was good.

BobBrisket 01-06-2013 05:28 PM

Well, got 15 very nice steaks outta that thing. Very nice marbeling. Looks good to me! We shall see how they grill up!
