Default I'm a sucker for "manager's special" and brown beef

I've been on a yellow tag/manager's special/scary looking beef kick lately. Marked down because it's "sell by date" is "today" - oh no! [thinks to self about the brisket in the fridge for 5 weeks].

Or maybe it's got some "yucky brown things" on it that make everyone afraid to buy it, as is the case today. Just some color change from exposure to air or something, doesn't bother me even a little bit - especial+ly not at < half price. So I got this 2" thick porterhouse for close out pricing. The other side facing the tray was still bright red, just a big ol thick steak with some air trapped in the packaging and the top got a little discolored. Smells fine. No problem.

Washed it off in the sink, wiped dry, and into a vacuum bag and freezer for a rainy day. I've actually amassed a decent stockpile of a variety of steaks just from passing through random meat departments looking for that little yellow tag. Usually $5-6/lb. I guess that's how I get my kicks now.

That meat does not scare me in the least!

Chow down.

Most of the time, the dark spots are caused by multiple packages being stacked on top of each other. The pressure causes it to bleed out a bit, at least that is my experience of working the meat dept for 6 years. it will be great. Consumers are a picky bunch. If you have ever sorted food at a food bank, you will see ugly produce that would not sell in the grocery market. Real first world problems.

Good score. I bought a bunch of veal cutlets recently at half price because they were running out of time the next day. Though I don't believe him, he said they'd have to throw them out the day after. I would think the employees would haul them home gladly (unless they can't because of policy).
I see nothing wrong with these steaks though if the had a brown side I would scrape off the top layer instead of washing.

You are just one step away from my mother-in-law who's obsessed with buying almost expired bread and freezing it.

I'm with you on that. I usually check for manager specials anytime I do any shopping and great scores like that makes you feel like it was a successful trip!

I even started making note of when a group of steaks in the bin hits the "sell by" date and I will go back on that day to see if theyre still there and have a yellow tag. sad. Usually its 2 or 3 days after I am there. Fridays have been my most productive yellow tag day for sure.
