    Default Meats: What do you want and what do you buy?

    I think everybody would like to make ground beef from filet mignon if it was
    $2/lb.
    Many folks only buy meat when it is on sale.

    I guess the question is: What cuts do you usually buy on sale and what do
    you buy when not on sale.

    Huh?

    Why on earth would I do that, at any price? Besides depriving me of a
    wonderful meal, it would be a waste of food as it's not suited to the
    usual ground beef applications at all.

    It's not about what's on sale. It's about do they have what I want. If
    they do, I buy it. If they don't, I don't settle for what they do have.

    I buy brisket and grind it myself for meatloaf and burgers.

    At any given time you will find the freezer loaded with:
    Whole chicken
    chicken thighs with bone
    chicken thighs, boneless, skinless
    pork loin, boneless
    sausages of a few varieties

    In all probability you will find:
    rib eye steaks
    rib eye roast
    chuck for pot roast

    I buy extra if on sale. I've often bought the marked down meats and found
    lamb chops and veal chops at half price that way. We don't cheap out on
    meat, but we can enjoy 59 chicken thighs as much as a $10 steak.

    Maybe you need to use </sarcasm> tags as it's not obvious from
    context.

    Work on it :-)

    That would terrible ground beef.

    I don't eat steaks anymore, usually. What I buy mostly are chuck for
    soups and stews, bottom round for stir-fry, and ground beef for
    spaghetti and chili.

    No, not everybody. I don't use 'filet mignon' to make ground beef.

    I buy the cuts I like, whether they're on sale or not.

    I've paid regular price for filet mignon, ground it, adn ate it raw
    with just salt and pepper. Were it already ground I wouldn't eat it
    if it was free.

    > Many folks only buy meat when it is on sale.


    I think normal brained folks prefer buying everything on sale.

    I buy whatever I want, if on sale all the better. Mostly I look at
    the sale items first but often I just have an urge for a particular
    cut and I want it now so I'll pay the regular price. With many dishes
    different cuts of meat can be used interchangeably anyway.

    I buy mostly beef and pork, roasts, steaks, anything that is halfway decent.
    But, I only buy it when it is on sale; then, I buy extra and stock the
    freezer. The only meat I don't buy on sale is flank steak, because here
    (STL), it never seems to go on sale; rather, I buy it at Trader Joes because
    it is always 20-25% less than at the supermarkets.

    Last week's sale meat was pork shoulder, round steak (labeled London Broil -
    don't start, I know it's a recipe, not a cut - tell that to the butcher) and
    delmonico steak. Oh, and a sweet bit of tortilla crusted, lime-chipotle
    tilapia that was "on special".

    I tend to buy pork chops when they are on sale, and chicken.
    Pork shoulder when I see it on sale.

    Beef I normally buy when I need it, so it might be on sale or not.
    Usually I buy a rib roast at Costco and cut it into steaks. I buy
    chuck roast and flank steak there, too, so sale doesn't really enter
    into it.

    The reason I joined Costco was for the meat, because at the time
    my local store's selection was just terrible.

    Meats I buy only when on sale:

    Ground chuck
    Whole beef tenderloins
    Prime rib eye steak
    Pork Tenderloins
    Boneless Pork loins
    Baby back ribs
    Chicken

    Most of the above go on sale so frequently that I keep them in inventory.
    An exception would be whole beef tenderloins and prime ribs eyes. Rarely on
    sale locally.

    Meats I buy when not on sale:

    Boars head slab bacon
    Italian sausage
    Lamb chops
    Ham steaks
    Sausage (Hillshire farms, Eckridge) I don't like it but my husband does

    I buy most of my lamb on sale as I can frequently score big on those
    lovely, expensive chops that have been marked down towards the sell by
    date. I think so few folks eat lamb in the south that it might sell more
    discounted than they do at full price? I rarely ever need to pay full
    price for chops.
    Other than lamb, I usually buy whatever I want at the regular price. I
    just buy more when I find it on sale!

    Well, I'd never make ground beef from filet mignon even if it was
    $1/pound...too lean to have any good flavor!!
    I don't buy a lot of red meat, just because it doesn't agree with me most of
    the time. If I eat it more than once a week, I get sick. So, when I buy
    meats, I usually buy chicken, pork, turkey. Chicken's pretty versatile and I
    buy it whether it's on sale or not..though a sale might influence what form
    I buy it in (boneless skinless, bone-in, etc). Same for pork. Turkey it
    seems like I only buy it on sale, even though I love it.

    I almost NEVER am forced to purchase meat that is not on sale. The exception
    to that is shopping at Costco or Sams although when short coded and marked
    down at Sams I will stock up. Last summer I noticed a case price on baby
    back ribs at Sams. The case was 45 pounds I think and about 50 cents below
    their normal price.

    I make my own ground round, ground chicken and ground pork (for Pasta &
    Meatloaf).

    I always check the "used meat bin" at all stores that have them.

    I shop pretty much the same way. I did say I pay full price for lamb chops,
    but I buy them at Sam's Club.

    I don't think I like your term "used meat bin" but I know what you mean <g>!
    I do the same thing.
