I finally saw SOME USDA PRIME meat at my local grocery store.....

they wanted to sell me a 2.7 pound boneless rib roast for $60.79..... Too small imo.

They had a few that looked that like 1.5 pounds in size, but looked so small I could not tell if it had much meat on it at all.

I would have never expected to see that kind of meat in my grocery store.


Have you had your habanero pepper today????
The hotter the pepper, the better the pepper!!!

It really has to be an 'upscale' store that stocks Prime beef. Most stores just offer 'Choice' with many only offering 'Select'

I have an old buddy that opened a small market that caters stictly to upscale cutomers...He carries 90% prime cuts...He gives me a small discount...but I still have to mortgage the farm to buy the stuff. Quite frankly I would rather have Choice day in and day out.

Most people could not tell the difference between choice and prime. You would be better off finding some good 21 day dry aged choice and spending your money on that. You will definitely see the difference between that and unaged or aged in cryovac beef.
