Omaha Steaks - Groupon deal

Just an FYI, received this in my email recently.  Looks like a pretty good deal if you're a carnivore

    Already dead. Are their steaks any good? Never had them.
    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....

  • It seems like the Groupon deal is dead but if you click the links it sounds like they're actually still good?

  • We were given some a few years ago as a present.  My impression was that I can get much better quality at Costco at a lesser price.

    In my opinion (which doesn't count for much), Kansas City Steak Co is better than Omaha Steaks, and Costco/Sam's Club is better than both of them.

    Loved OS years ago and recently tried them again...I don't know, seems the quality has drifted a little now. They may be alright if the in-laws are coming over but for good friends I will go to a butcher shop, (Glad my wife doesn't read this blog)

     

    Any cook you can walk away from is a good one.

    problem with omaha is the tiny steaks dont cook right. if i want a good steak i drive to this place but they mail order as well, a 45 day dry aged steak at 2 pounds is about42 bucks plus delivery and there premier cowboy steak is half as much

  • I got some as a gift and after cooking a couple I threw the rest out. I'll gladly pay the butcher a little more.

    It looks like they have good prices on their meat, but the shipping for two cowboy ribeyes was 2 1/2 times the meat cost.  Omaha steaks are way over priced for what you get and most people in Omaha, including myself, don't but them.  You're way better off finding a good butcher in your area.

    its probably more worth it for someone that wants to try a 45 day dry aged steak and cant get one where they are at. and way better than buying a 5 ounce steak and a hamburger patty at omaha steaks
    :))
    they are growing fast, a few years ago the were just a few in newengland, now they are down the eastern seaboard, texas and out to california

    $123 shipping for a $41 dry-aged piece of beef. Um, no thanks, I'm too frugal to justify purchasing that, even it is just to "try" it.

    Alternatively, buy a good marbled piece of meat (choice or prime) and age yourself - they sell drybags for aging in your fridge.  http://www.drybagsteak.com/

  • Nola, have you used the drybags?  If so, how long did you dry age and how was it?

    Not yet.  I'm about to order some.  Mostly I want to make the capicola, but I'll definitely try some dry aging of beef.
