Cheap Beef Meals

HumbleFoodie | Aug 18, 2014 12:59 PM

Dearest Chowhounders,

Now with Pampers on board, I've been trimming the grocery budget week by week. We get all our meats from Whole Foods, which isn't the cheapest, but we are not willing to sacrifice that...yet. Fortunately. We have been eating well but are growing tired of chicken and pork, chicken and pork, etc. Does anyone have ideas on the use of cheaper cuts of beef? Tacos are good, but once I purchase all the toppings and shells, it gets quite expensive and no leftovers. Ground chuck is $4.99/lb where I am, if that helps put into perspective. Right now I am just buying a sirloin for us to half each week, which costs $14 plus a salad or vegetable. Not very prudent. Would like more options, if you have any.

Thank you so very much, as always.

God bless.
