And in restaurants when you can order a bone in cut, it is BIG bucks but really good. Elway's in Denver serves a bone-on filet that a friend reported to be the best piece of meat he ever put in his mouth!! They have an in house butcher of course.
DH had a bone on rib steak at our club, that while good, I didn't think it near matched the menu price!!
I have begun buying porterhouse or Tbones when on sale and having them cut double thick. Then we "carve" off of the steak. This way, I can get a REALLY good caramelized crust from the grill but still have it nice and rare. Had one last night as a matter of fact. It was on sale for $5.99/lb.--it was about a $13 piece of meat (cut about 2+ inches thick) and served us for dinner with a LOT of leftovers for a lunch.
