I had a ribeye from The Dollar Tree,

Bobfrmia | Oct 25, 201105:10 PM     21

I did this because after telling a few people about the frozen rib eye's at the Dollar Tree, I was chastised for not "taking one for the team" and spending a buck to try it.
This is a 3.75oz frozen steak, that is 30% tenderizing solution. It looked like frozen coffee.
After thawing it seemed to be so, I don't know, liquid?, that it would fall through the grill. I was close, but it did firm up as the moisture cooked out. After a couple minutes, it turned an interesting grey color, and I pronounced it done.
Having very low expectations, I brought in a second sampler. My best friend Gabe. He wasn't told anything about it, just a willing participant.
My first bite, also my last, confirmed what you would expect from this. It had the texture of baked beans, and the flavor immediately made me think of when I was very young, and had a chemistry set.
I don't remember eating the chemicals, but maybe doing so is why I don't.
Gabe had an entirely different opinion. He seemed to believe it was a delicious piece of meat he would be happy to have for dinner every night. Chowed down every bite and looked at me longingly for more.
Gabe is not only my best friend, he is mans best friend.
Pick one up to treat your dog when you are grilling.
I understand the economy is hurting a lot of people very bad. The dollar menu at any fast food place is a better option.
