Not sure what the deal was, but I was in Publix picking up NY Strips for a family get together, and was cruising the rest of the meat section looking for deals. I frequently see meats marked way down with a Manager's Special sticker...but those are usually steaks that have obviously sat a while, are turning brown or other "off colors" and look like they should have been sold days ago. Sure enough, tonight there were some otherwise really nice looking porterhouse steaks on Manager's Special, but they looked old. Then I wandered over to the Greenwise meats, and they had a whole bunch of bone-in ribeye steaks on Manager's Special ($5.99/lb IIRC). The confusing thing was, most of them looked fresh and perfect. I picked up two roughly 1lb ones and just finished foodsavering them for the freezer.
After doing 5 .75lb NY Strips tonight, and 3 slabs of baby backs tomorrow (just finished prepping those), I just can't see eating the ribeyes until maybe next weekend or later.
