Ran across this today at work, not sure if its just BS marketing, but figured I'd share anyway.

    Actually, going to the steak's site, it looks almost like a tri-trip cute in half lengthwise.

  • Gee, the shady meat industry AND Vegas coming up with a mystery cut of super premium beef that they can charge crazy prices for? Call me skeptical.

    Man I love marketing.....reminds me: "you can get a good look at a T-bone by sticking your head up a cow's ass, but wouldn't you rather take the butcher's word for it?"

    New York Strip, Kansas City Strip, and now the Vegas Strip Steak! I am betting they are from the same basic area and look and taste about the same. I believe the KCS and NYS are the same cut but done in different parts of the United States.

    How do you discover a new cut? Is it a new cow with an extra leg?  It's not like they throw out anything useful on carcass.

    I think this was the best part:
    Most interesting is the fact that this new cut of meat apparently counts as intellectual property, replete with its own licensing and a patent on the cut's fabrication. Mata and Gresh have yet to reveal where, exactly, the cut comes from but they've already lined up national suppliers so we should be getting a taste of Vegas at the local butcher shop soon.

    So now you someone gets a cut of money to be able to say that their steak is a vegas strip cut.

    I call shenanigans

    Thats BS...

    this quote says it all :

    "Whenever we can take a muscle and turn it into a steak rather than
    grinding it or selling it as a roast, we are adding value to the
    carcass."


    Thats nothing but increasing the price of a product thats been there forever and just gets a new box.

    Make friends with your butcher and dont fall for something like this.

    Cows can't have an extra leg. It is a dorsal fen.
