I buy the vacuum packed 20-30 lb. sealed plastic from a wholesale outlet which does not have any butchers or other specialists on site. It's purely a stock the shelves, freezers and refrigerated cases type of store.

My Great Deal at the Market Today..
USDA Choice Top Sirloin $4.77 lb.

Grilled to 142*...Allowed to rest. Sliced and served.

Don't panic....It served three adults, with some left over. Plus the "Kill Dawg" got a few scraps.

last month, on special at the Center Market in Poulbo Washington, they had the best deals of all. Of course I was on vacation, staying in hotel rooms using a rental car, having to fly home, so I couldn't make use, darn it.
20x20x20 box loaded with grapes, free
20x20x20 box, loaded with juicy pears, free
20x20x20 box, loaded with zukes, free
20x20x20 box, loaded with roma tomatoes, free
WHY DON'T I LIVE THERE?

Yeah,i agree with you.The knives and cutting board make a good housewarming gift if you know someone just starting out on their own. They're cheap, but they're serviceable.
