This week's Food Basics flyer has the following beef on sale
outside round roast or steak - $5.49/ lb
sirloin tip roast or steak - $5.99/ lb
Links (if they work at all) will only work temporarily. When the new flyer goes up next week it'll wipe these out.
In other words- rump roast ranging from $3-6 per pound. I cut each side into 5-6 roasts. 12 roasts of approximately 4 pounds each. At $5/pound, my roasts would currently be valued at $240.
stewing beef - $3.99/ lb
I've got ten packages so far, roughly 2 pounds each, with approximately 4 more packages left to trim. Value- $112
inside round roast - $4.99/ lb
strip loin steak - $9.99/ lb
top sirloin roast or club pack steak - $2.99/ lb
24 top sirloin steaks, about a pound each, $71.76
red grill angus tenderloin or steak - $14.99/ lb
stewing beef - $3.99/lb
Tenderloin. Times two. At least three pounds each. Yum!!! $90!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I cut t-bone steak and rib steak, over a pound each, 50 steaks. Conservatively, at $6/ lb (that'd be a really good sale) $300.
Shoulder blade and other assorted roasts, guessing roughly $5/ lb, approximately 4 pounds each X 18 - $360.
Corned beef- This will be experimental, post to come... - approximately 24 pounds @ $8/ lb (the last price I saw it on sale for)- $192
Ribs. Hmmm. I've never bought beef ribs. I can only remember even considering it once when these dinky little packages were on sale for about $4 each. That was at least two years ago. At that price, comparatively, I've got about $48 or so worth of ribs.
Comparatively, $1413 worth of mostly run of the mill, whatever came off the assembly line beef. Compared to organic grass fed beef- ha! Can you even buy it here? Cause that's what he was! I'm guessing, maybe, double it? $2826
Plus tallow and beef stock and dog food.
I paid $1000 for Steaks, and with any luck, come spring, he will be a daddy to three new born calves. I'm pretty sure I got one hell of a bargain.
Thank you Steaks, and thank you Mother Earth for this bountiful harvest!
