Who eats Prime or Kobe or Wagyu?

 

I’m a choice guy unless Prime is on sale.  This happens often after Christmas.

You?

Get Costco Prime when I want it.  It's very good for Costco.  Otherwise Safeway choice for me. Safeway Kobe Burgers are as good as a burger can get.

Generally choice and prime at home.   Occasionally kobe or waygu when out, but happy with CAB (certified angus).  Occasionally  grass fed.  A local farmer just recent broke down a grass fed and I picked up about 10 pounds of ground, 6 ribeyes, 6 filets.

safeway has  a very reasonable CAB burger patties that I tried a month or so ago. Also a decent chuck blend.

I splurged on the pre formed Kobe patties at 11 a pound. I didn't expect much from pre formed and was blown away by how good they were.

Choice or Prime. The local supermarket recently added Prime and CAB to their inventory so I get it more often now.

It's Texas - I do Nolan Ryan Angus USDA Choice beef..........and when I make it down to HEB, pick up prime cuts there. They have some prime Tomahawk steaks to die for.

Do you have a Central Market near you?  Their meat and seafood are incredible.

We do.. and I go there sometimes. But overall CM is just a fancy HEB - pretty much the same products at 2-to-3 times the price.

HEB doesn't have near the selection and god forbid you ask an HEB butcher to cut a steak to a specific thickness.

No, but the selection isn't so less that it warrants paying 3 times the price all the time. For every day, HEB is awesome.

I understand they are more but the Prime USDA at the central market here isn't 3 times the prime at HEB.  It is only a couple of bucks more per pound.  Further, the HEB seafood isn't in the same class as central market.  For everyday HEB is fine.  For a nice or special meal Central Market is far superior.
