Trip to Costco = Prime Beef & Food Saver
 
Stopped by Costco tonight and finally picked up a food saver which was on sale for $120. And of-course i had to try it out, so i got some boneless Prime short ribs for 8.99 a pound. Ill grill them over the weekend and get some pics.

I also purchased that Food Saver model at Costco. Already a good deal at regular price now on sale equals a very good deal. I now will order the marinade container for superfast marinating.

Foodsaver rocks. I use mine all the time!

pardon my ignorance but do you just use the foodsaver so you can buy meats in bulk? I too have marinaded meat before hand and put in the freezer. I use just Ziploc or equivalant freezer bags, then i wrap it in a few Safeway plastic bags.

Be careful with what Costco calls prime beef.

I have the 2200 Foodsaver and I love it. Should I regret not spending a little more on the bigger models though? Didn't know if I was really missing out on a lot of great features and stuff. Not too late for me to return it I don't think.

This FoodSaver model has a special Quick Marinate Cycle (It lasts only 10 minutes and you need the Quick Marinate container) that alternates between vacuuming and resting the meat that will allow for quicker marinating. I'm really looking forward to trying this as I've heard good things about it.

I had the V2490 model (Another Costco purchase) but it was getting older and decided to upgrade because this one was on sale and takes up less space on my already crowded counter. The Quick Marinating Cycle was also a big plus.

The right way... JK.. Sear the hell out of it and serve it medium. With some smoke wood to the side. Since they are strip cuts almost no point in reverse sear.
