Are You Tired of Maxing Out Your Credit Cards For Meat Purchases?!
Eat Steak On a Hamburger Budget
For instance, if round steaks are on sale dirt cheap, why pay high prices for any of the cuts that come from the round?
You don't have to!
Do you have any idea how many different cuts come from the common Round steak?
A round steak is often on sale for $1.69 to $1.99 a pound. However, the cuts that are merchandised from the round are often quite a bit more.
For Example: The chunk of beef where round steaks come from can also be cut into rump roasts, top round steaks, top round roasts, top round London broils, bottom round steaks, bottom round roasts, eye of round roasts, eye of round steaks, cube steaks, stew meat, beef strips for stir fry or fajitas, ground round, and carne asada to name a few. There is absolutely no reason to pay the regular asking price for any cut!
The secret is knowing what cut comes from where -- or knowing where to find the information on what cut comes from where.
Say you need some stew meat for dinner. You are standing in front of the display case at your favorite supermarket. In front of you is a nice large display of bright red and lean beef stew meat priced at $4.49 a pound. Ouch!
You don't want to spend an arm and a leg for stew beef, do you? Look around and find the roast section. Are there any roasts on sale? Are there any steaks on sale? The chances are you will find something in the beef section that will be priced lower than the stew beef. Once you have found the cheapest cut of beef in the case, hand it to the butcher and ask him to cut it up into stew beef for you. Just make sure that whatever you choose does not have a lot of fat to be trimmed away. You have just saved a bundle.
How about some nice rib eye steak for dinner? We all know that a rib eye is gonna cost a bundle. However, there is an alternative that will save you a bunch of money and will eat just as well as a rib eye.
The loin, or what the hunters call the back strap, extends from the top sirloin through the prime rib section and on into the first few inches of the chuck. The chuck eye is the same muscle as the rib eye. It is just as tender as the rib eye, just a little smaller. What you do the next time boneless chucks are on sale is ask the butcher for the first four inches off the boneless chuck. Ask him if he would peel out the chuck eye and cut it into steaks. Then ask him to grind the rest into some nice ground chuck, or make stew meat out of it. Not only have you saved a bundle, but now you're eating like royalty.
There is absolutely no good reason to spend the kind of money that most of you have been for meat.
For years the retail meat industry has taken advantage of the consumer. It's time for me to come forward.
The Confession: For the last thirty some years, now, I've taken part in a little-known scam that has affected every retail meat consumer that has ever bought a hunk of beef or pork. From the very earliest days of the retail meat industry until now, people have been falling prey to our merchandising schemes.
In the old days a butcher would grab a short loin (the primal where t-bone steaks are cut from) and cut it into t-bone stakes. Then one day an over-achieving-type butcher got the bright idea to call the first four cuts off the short loin Porterhouse steaks and charge more for them. That must of worked out pretty well, because ever since, we butchers have been coming up with more and more creative ways to get more money out of you, the consumer. We take the big chunks of meat and cut them into all different shapes and sizes and call them all sorts of names and charge you all different kinds of, mostly high, prices. There is no need for you to pay these high prices any longer.
