Flank Steak Price

I decided to cook a flank steak so I stopped by the local supermarket. The flank steak was $7.99 /lb. Is that pretty high? I thought flank steak was supposed to be a cheaper cut of meat.

    Flank steak is one of those cuts that has jumped in price big time.
    Big flavor, low fat cut and people are learning the correct way to cook it.
    Best bet is Sam's Club and such. Will save you $2.00 a pound.
    Thank you,

    $7.99/lb is normal around here at gourmet butcher shops. They can be had cheaper, depending on who sells them, but the only place I normally see them is in the small butcher shops.

    I've seen them as low as $4.99/lb here, but availability isn't all too common.

    It used to be cheap by comparison but it has become so popular because it is lean and flavourful. I have better luck getting hanger or flap for a good price.

    Bought a 3 pack over the weekend at Sams for $5.69 a lb. They only had one package or I would have bought more. Kroger usually sells them for $7.99 around here.
  • I pay $4.99 a pound at my local target all the time.

    It sucks to keep seeing the price constantly rise. One of my favorite cuts of meat. Even more so when it was CHEAP!
