The last time that I bought beef tenderloin was on Valentine's Day. It was on sale for $5.99/lb, so I bought enough for about 8 steak dinners.
We love it. I just figured that they had marked it down to lure in the shoppers who would also buy all the other pricey Valentine's dinner fixings (which were not on sale)---jumbo shrimp, scallops, chocolate dipped strawberries, etc. Ha! Fooled them, I only bought the meat!
I can find 80/20 ground meat on sale for $1.99/lb, but most red meat around here is very pricey. So................we tend to cluck a lot at our house!
