Steak frustration - untrimmed vs trimmed

fldhkybnva | Oct 26, 2012 11:52 AM

My local Whole Foods just started carrying grass fed meat and as a steak and grass fed meat lover I have been in heaven. I usually get the NY strip steak and it seems that nearly 1/3 of the weight measured in the store is gristle and silverskin that has to be removed - my yield today was 75% of original weight post-trim. Is this typical? Is it OK to ask them to trim it before weighing as it's somewhat frustrating to pay for 1/3 of a product that's not being consumed.
