USDA Prime Meat: best and cheapest places to buy?

Ligament | Apr 7, 2003 02:23 AM

Hey all,

I just purchased a really nice 17oz USDA Prime sirloin from Whole Foods. Loved it. I did not realize how good a prime steak can taste at home. (I crusted it with fleur de sel and seared in a cast iron skillet, served with cilantro based chimmichurri).

Anyway, Wholefoods was muy expensive, at 17bucks for this cut of steak. Who has USDA *prime* and is most cost effective?

Also, who sells USDA Prime *dry aged* steaks? anybody?

Thanks! Jason
