Price and Convenience isn't Everything: D'Angelo's Butcher Shop: Bison

Bashful3 | Feb 16, 2013 05:22 AM

Parking is tough, but I snagged one nearby, and it was worth it.

Thanks to a tip from CH's here, I was able to get the bison tongue
I was longing for. And, when I asked about ground bison, the butcher
(duh, didn't even ask his name) pulled out a huge slab of gorgeous marbled bison, and asked me how much. Haven't seen that before.
He deftly cut off a slab that was a tad over 2 pounds, trimmed it a bit,
cut it into chunks and fed it through a huge grinder in front of me.

Same price, but oh, what a difference in the taste and texture of the meat. Same $9/pound, but this was worth it. No more pre-packaged
ground bison for me if I can help it, or meat that has been sitting around
for a bit either.

Actually, I would be willing to pay more to have REAL ground beef instead of what passes for it in markets. Thank you, CH's for a great
tip. I also got some bison rib steaks from D'Angelo's freezer that
I can't report on yet, but they looked great.

((Don't be put off by paucity of meat in the case. Most is kept in the back, and brought out by request))
