I guess I should not really complain about price of kosher meat if the regular meat is expensive. I pay about $6.49 per pound of ground beef.

Another added bonus is that you don't get any pink slime.
We have a beef CSA that comes in around $7 per pound (mixed boxes delivered to the farmer's market monthly) That seems like a good price for local, humanely raised, grass fed beef.

Whoa--I could see where you wouldn't be making a lot of meatloaf or meatballs...

Beef (Food) Prices will triple in the next 5 years....However long range prices (10-15 years) will moderate to 1980 levels as soon we get all of our energy from Algae, Melting Snowflakes and Hydroelectric Commode Flushes. ~~ In the interim...better stock up!!

No kidding! I'm just glad I am happy with way smaller portions, now. 80/20 ground beef was "on sale" for $3.49/lb.

That is the price we're seeing. Gotta say, I had no problem switching my protein intake to EGGS!

I'm going to be making that switch, too. Shrek is already eating 2 eggs a day for his protein. It's difficult for this carnivore.
