How to Buy Your Meat?


Lesson No 1: The Quality

Kosher Markets offer 2 kinds of Beef inside the US market:

  • American Beef: Is a higher quality meat and most of the time the animals are Grain-Fed (Corn Fed).
  • South American Beef: Offer Grain-Fed Beef and Grass-Fed Beef. South American Beef is always less expensive.

Steaks and Roasts.

Meat amateurs will always look for a Prime AMERICAN Ribeye or Rib steak or Roast for the tenderness, the high taste, and his known high juicy quality.

In another hand, South American Grass-Fed steaks are much less tender and juicy but have a much lower level cholesterol and are much less expensive.

South American Grass-Fed Beef look more color full red due to the absence of fat.

THIS IS NOT A HIGH-QUALITY CRITERIA!

PRIME AMERICAN Beef look at the contrary more “marbleized” due to the inclusions of fat.

That is what gives his high tenderness and juiciness.

Conclusion:

If you do not eat steaks or roasts every day, if you do not have cholesterol issues and if you can afford a little bit more, then ASK YOUR BUTCHER for PRIME AMERICAN STEAKS OR ROASTS. Kosherland Market Surfside offer both options. Ask the butcher on premises what best for you!


Lesson No 2: The Price

 

In any market you will find on the pack of the meat 2 prices:

  • Price per LB
  • Price that you will pay.

LOOK ONLY AT THE PRICE YOU ARE PAYING!

Price per LB means NOTHING.

Some store will sell Prime Rib steak or Flanken at $12.99/lb full of bones and fat.

Other stores will sell the same piece of meat $17.99 BUT CLEAN of extra bone and fat.

The final price will be the same!

Conclusion:

DON’T GET IMPRESSED BY A TOO LOW OR TOO HIGH PRICE PER LB.

You pay for what you have in most case!
