Best Butcher!?!?

j00nyer | Dec 22, 2009 12:20 PM

First of all i'd like to say Hi, my first post, i've been lurking around the forum for a year now and haven't really contributed...mostly because i barely know anything and most of you out there beat me to it or know hell alot more than i do. and i just wanted to say i really love this forum.

and onto my question, i'm planning to have a steak dinner with family, but i'm not sure which butcher shop is the best bang for buck.
i mean i've searched around google and on this forum and i know there are many butchers such as The Healthy Butcher, Cumbrae's, European Quality Meats & Sausages, Olliffe, etc... and the list just continues.
As i've never been to any butchers....only to the ones at loblaws...sobeys....which i think are horrible yet i still go because its so close, which butcher shop gives the best bang for buck? and are the cuts at these butcher shops cheaper than your local loblaws/sobeys/nofrills?

also, whats the best way too book steak? i know its all about personal preference...but there has to be a "best way" to make it really plump and juicy...would just searing it and pop it in the oven for a few minutes be the best? or simply grilling it? (since it's winter i'd just be using a Grill pan since i don't have an indoor Griller)

Hope i didn't ask too many questions and hope someone answers them all=(

Thanks in advance!!
