  • Curious - Will you be cutting /freezing individual steaks or cooking whole?

  • I also greeted this with enthusiasm and plan to pick one up this weekend. I may cut in half or a third to cook whole and then slice the rest into steaks. Talk about first world problems.

    Dwayne, was all over this with a planned run to Costco until N reminded me we have 20# of prime ribeye in the freezer and 8# dry aging.  Damn the bad luck.

    Damn. I bought in  last time they did this. 

    I may have have to load the kids up and drive into town for a refill or ribeye and strip loin

    How much will this cost?  How many steaks can you cut from this?

    I'll take that ribeye off of your hands so you can go get that strip. That's what friends do.

    So would this "beef loin top loin" be the same as New York strips?

    I may have to make the trip...

    $9.99 per pound, they are 12 - 14 pounds or so.  10 - 15 steaks, depending on thickness

    They are $9.99 but then you get $25 off the total price. The one in my picture above was before the $25 off so it's like $8 a lb.

    Oh ok, I thought the 9.99 was the sale price.

    Is this every Costco or select costco’s?

    Along with the 19lb ribeye roast I picked up last weekend, I’m set for a while.

    Passed.  There were about 10 out and to my eye, looked more like choice and my freezer's not empty.

    Thanks @DMW  they had a good selection for me. I got one that was just over 10 lbs. that means I basically got 25% off or it was just over $7.50 lb for prime grade.

    Based on my small sample size, you made the right call. I cut up a 14-pounder tonight and it didn't look like prime based on my completely amateur assessment. Looked very similar to the choice grade cuts they were selling for a few bucks cheaper.

    I agree. I went in for the prime and left with a choice. $30 cheaper and almost 5lb more beef.

    Prime I got from Costco was amazing. Gonna up the DA roast this weekend. No trimming required.

    I looked closely at every one that was under 13 lbs and tried to choose wisely. Some were much better than others. I will know if the one I got Is good for sure when I cook it in 2 weeks. Based on the ends and the thinner fat cap on it I should have little to no trimming, I think it should be great.

    Mine came out good. Lost a couple pounds of fat I'm sure but I like to trim them good I take the whole fat cap off. Ended up with 12 nice steaks.

    You didn't butcher that thing did you? Looks like a first time brisket trimming attempt?

    50% fat loss after the trim job.
    How that POS cut was given the Prime shield is beyond me, and suspect?
