Beef Tenderloin What am I missing?

Virtualdodo | Feb 4, 2014 07:33 PM

So we just bought our first beef tenderloin from costco. It was about 3.1Kg at a price of 24.99 per kilo, So I guess thats about 11.35 per lbs.

We carved it up watched many of videos I think I did a pretty good job lost a bit of meat while taking off the fat but not to much. Just under a kilo in fat. (It was pretty fatty)

We got about 10-4oz Steaks, 500Grams of cubes and about 187 grams of misc meat.

So when I weight this all out it came in about about 2.318 Kilos.

Now this is where I am really second guessing my self. Costco had .953 Kilos of Tenderloin steaks as well these were 34.99 per Kilo.

So according to my math to get the same 2.318 Kilos I got would have cost me 81 dollars and my whole tenderloin was 79. how did I only save 2 dollars or am I missing something?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
