That's about what some people would have you believe it would cost if you ordered it from Omaha Steaks!

In actuality, though, I just ordered 2 boxes of ground beef from Omaha Steaks, each containing 4 one pound packages, for $19.99 a box, and the shipping was FREE! I just love it when I can get a package of ground anything that weighs EXACTLY one pound! It makes following recipes SO much easier.
