Cheap cuts at St Lawrence Market? Chinatown?

julesrules | Feb 19, 2014 07:00 AM

For logistical reasons, I would like to be able to shop for my crockpot on my lunch hours. I use it for cheap cuts that benefit from a long braise, ie/ bone-in pork shoulders that I pick up for $10-12, which then provide our protein for several meals. Basically, I'm not good at keeping track of per pound prices but I know a deal when I see it.... and I don't need to potentially ruin a $30 hunk of meat in my crockpot.

I'm also looking to expand my horizons with beef tongue, for example. But I don't want to spend trendy prices. Is there any butcher in the St Lawrence market that offers reasonably priced large hunks of meat? Or do I need to go to Chinatown, and if so, where? I don't think I can quite make it to shop Kensington in the hour I have (coming from the financial district).
