Default Prime tomahawk ribeye steak at Costco $12.99/#

Today and Father's Day only while supplies last at your local Costco. They are usually around $18/# I think. For those of you who don't know what they are, a pic from my local Costco in Las Vegas a while ago.

That doesn’t look very Prime to me. Not enough marbling. I prefer fillet to be honest.

I know. That pic might not have been prime ones as they have usually have both from time to time.

I prefer the below. Such a nice flavor.

Wow. Are you sure it's beef???

I was going to take a few pics of my latest ones, but either I forgot or didn't feel up to it as I was hungry.

Now you'll have to wait as we will be leaving here in another ten days or so for NV, then I'll be able to shop at my local Vons. Hope they still have it for that price. It usually takes me about 7 hours from start to finish using the slow cook method so even tough meat, while not super tender, will become edible.

I'll be cooking a couple prime strips from Costco tomorrow and maybe I'll take some pics of these for future use. Jandmtv is right about the first pic. It's nowhere near a prime rating in my book.

It's usually $16/# I believe. The bone-in is usually less than boneless since you're getting less meat per #

Today’s “choice” grade is yesterday’s “select”......beef sucks overall nowadays.

Stator bros FTW. At least in my area great cuts, summer rolling around you can get nice rib eyes and tbones for about 3.99-7.99/lbs they come out great. Superior also has good meat stuff on sale from time to time.

But sometimes just sometimes they get good stuff in there. Keep your eye out on the marbling and dont bo for the packaged stuff. My local stator the butcher hand picks the stuff that goes into the glass case not the prepackaged fridge. At the same price it's a steal. Also pork spare ribs for 1.49/lb weekends coming soon.

you're absolutely right.

when my local costco started carrying prime about 10 years ago, it was beautifully marbled and you could tell it was something different. now, it just seems like the USDA has gotten a little too liberal with their prime stamps.

I grilled some up yesterday. came out great, but the marbling isn't as good as I would think for prime. The NY Strip I bought on sale between xmas and new years eve had perfect marbling.

Ever since Costco started packing the prime grade ribeye caps, I've been buying them exclusively and haven't stopped. Grilled with salt and pepper, or pecan wood chip smoked with molasses powder and spiced apple rub.

Not that impressed with Costco meat in general, but that looks like sirloin to me. Choice grade, at best. Would not pay more than $6-$7/lb for it.

Pork loin is what I get the most of at Costco, especially when it's $1.29/lb. Take it home and make pork chops in whatever thickness I want.

For chicken I go to Smart & Final - their boneless/skinless breasts are $2.19 every day ($.80 less than Costco) but regularly go on sale for $1.99, $1.49, sometimes $.99/lb.

Costco Business Center has some great cuts of Prime meat - filet, ribeye, etc. - whole. Definitely the way to go for Prime @ Costco.

Went to my favorite Costco on Sunday morning and they didn't have them. Came back and cooked frozen, (thawed in refrig for two days) prme states that I bought in late Feb at C's for $12.99 a pound, and after letting them stand on the countertop, seasoned for two hours, two minutes a side sear at 500 and cook then turn off the burner and cook at around 400 til 125 centers at indirect, let stand for 15 minutes then bon apetite. Could cut with a butter knife and superb flavor.

Indescribably delicious.

The bone handle is cool and I could see buying a couple for a special occasion like Father's Day but you can get a good steak for much less.

I buy NY strip steak on sale at various supermarkets for $4.99-5.99/#. You can also buy a slab of NY strip or ribeye at Costco for (last I saw) about $8-9/# and cut the steaks any width you like; it just won't have a bone to hold on to.
