The saddest beef I ever did see...

nothingswrong | May 20, 2014 04:08 PM

So I'm hosting a BBQ tomorrow night. I'm disabled and have a difficult time getting to the grocery store, so I often order my groceries online through a Safeway company here in SoCal (Vons). Most of the stuff they bring is great, with a few exceptions (like potatoes are sometimes mushy or they'll crush the tomatoes in the bottom of the bag).

Anyway I almost exclusively buy meat from a nicer grocery store with a butcher. I figured I'd just get it from Vons for tomorrow and save some serious $$. I ordered several packs of organic chicken breasts, pork chops, and a tri-tip.

The chicken and pork look great. The steak--not so much.

I'm no meat connoisseur, having been a vegetarian most of my life, but is this not the saddest most awful looking piece of meat?? Can I serve this to guests? The package was also leaky; luckily they put it in double plastic bags so it did not contaminate everything.

Should I grab a good one for triple the price at my butcher? I can cook this one up and feed it to the dogs I guess.
