Hey, I'll tell you what. You can get a good look at a butcher's ass by sticking your head up there. But, wouldn't you rather to take his word for it?

What? I'm failing to make the connection here.

No, I mean is, you can get a good look at a T-bone by sticking your head up a butcher's ass...

I think you can get a good one at Hy-Vee or another store, it just depends on who cut it and when.

I dont know about the stores where you live but here we have a butcher who sells much better steaks than you can buy at any grocery store and the price is very competitive.

I wont buy steak at the grocery store ever again.

The best part is you can tell them what you want, say a 1" thick KC strip or whatever.

I made the great mistake of ordering a 1" thick T-bone the first time I got steaks there. It weighed about 2lbs. LMAO.

I second that. I buy the bulk and cut them to my taste and vacuum seal them. I have a buddy that owns a restaurant. He does not buy his meat there, but he does say it has great meat. Good price, good quality and you can cut it just like you like it. Rib eyes are the most flavorful imo.

Local owned butcher-shop cuts to your specs .. usually has double-grassed beef ....

Local market. Good quality, great service, nice people, locally owned and prices competitive with or sometimes better than the chain stores. I buy most of my meats there, it's worth an extra stop.

Where are you????

In KC McGonigals or Ranchers will give you the best pure cuts. Costco does have very good meat cuts.

Sirloin is a great cut for the money.

Strange this thread comes up tonight. We just had a bone-in ribeye from McGonigle's tonight. Freaking. Delicious. Don't marinate it, don't put any super fancy rubs on it-- just salt and pepper- and if you're feeling frisky, a tad paprika.

Absolutely the best-cut meat in KC.

**** that shit, a few years back my uncle had a cow with a bum leg that had no market value so he let us butcher it, we were lost as hell once we started cutting it up. 95% of it ended up as ground beef. Never again. :shake: I'll stick to slaughtering poultry.

Parental units live in Nevada and Cosco had some of the BEST meat I have bought.

Sams club in Topeka has great Choice meats as well. KCstip baby. I buy the WHOLE Strip Loin (KC STRIP) and cut my own steaks and use the Food Saver to cryovac them for freezing. It's a HELLOFALLOT cheaper to buy it WHOLE and cut your own.

I guess I'm lucky. We raise calves from cows that come from stock we've raised. They're fed for the appropriate time, put on grain for 120 days to properly fatten them and taken to a butcher and cut to our specs.

If I had to buy from a store, Fareway has choice meat. I knew a federal meat inspector who told me they were very selective in their beef and pork purchases. If I had to buy a half, that's where I'd go.

I also trust the locker we use, and might call them first to see if they knew anyone who raised grain fed calves. not too fat, not grass fed.

No joke I went to Aldi over the Summer and they had those packaged bacon wrapped filets for $1 each. I was like holy shit. So I bought a bunch of them, unpackaged them, put them in some tupperware, and took them out to the Royals. Dudes in my tailgated were JIMP'n right and left over them steaks.

Around here, it's hard not to find a great steak, but for the best, there is a place called the "Meat Palace." (eeeeeaay Hootie, it's not a gay bath house) Unreal quality. You can cut the steaks after they're cooked with a fork.

I remember well following the Jeffry Dahmer trial and they were in detail of him recounting the time he tenderized and seasoned a bicep and said it was very tender and tasted good.

Can't say I would try it but if he says it's good I'm guessing he should know. :thumb:

Yet another vote for McGonigle's or Costco.

I think there used to be a place off of Wornall or State Line, over by the old US Toy place. Not sure if it's still there.

McGonigle's also makes awesome sandwiches FWIW
