Question Does anyone want to go halves on a box of Prime graded NY Steaks?

I just talked to my guy at Sysco and because of our restaurant and my "cool guy" discount, he says he can hook me up with a discount for a box (2, 10-12lb slabs) of Prime graded NY steaks. Regular price is like 266, he said he can hook it up for like 240 something depending on the final weight of the box. These are the exact same steak that Ruth Chris and Arnie Mortons steak house with the prime graded marbeling (they both buy from Sysco) that they serve at their restaurants. Laury's Beverly Hills buys from Sysco too but they buy the more expensive corn fed organic beef. If anyone in LA want to go halves let me know because they last 14 days in the seal pack and I only want to buy one. Let me know. In case you don't know, prime steaks make up for less than 1% of all beef sold in the US. They come in a long slab, you cut it up yourself. Center cut being the best. So it will come out to like $130 a slab. Not bad for high end steak house meat at that price.

Neil, you'd be willing to spend $100k on a douched out 130, but you want to go Dutch on $240 worth of steaks? Did your 401k crash since your post this afternoon?

I am confused.

I go to restaurant depot and buy Prime steaks (Filet) for about $12-14 a pound. I usually buy a 9 lb fillet. I cut what I need then vacuum seal it the throw them in the freezer…

Did you mean laurys or lawrys? I assume you meant Lawrys since there is no
Laurys in Beverly hills. I dont care if lawrys buys better meat, anyone who has eaten there can tell you it it is garbage. Don't get me wrong I go there once every couple of years. It's fun to be surrounded by Asians (number one customer) as some old haggered waitress pushes a cart of meat over to my table and asks if I want the end cut.

Yeah, Lawrys, the one on La Cienega. Thats considered to be part of Beverly Hills. Anyone who knows better would never freeze prime grade beef. The ice will damage the meat. Plus I only have enough space for one slab in my refridgerator, barely.

Yes you are correct... it maybe even a sin but here is my predicament
I can go to restaurant depot an entire Prime fillet (12 cuts) for about the price of buying 4-5 Black Angus steaks at the local butchers.

I usually wait until I have dinner guest to buy the entire fillet.

The 50 Cal Muzzleloader is too easy to shoot. The pic is 3 shot group at 100 yards.. need to adjust to the left a little. Next time I go to the range I will take care of that.

not quite.

If I can shoot that well on paper, I feel confident that I cand hold "minute of elk"

Elk tenderloins and backstraps are just as good as prime beef if done right...

I drove through Nobleboro 6-8 times last week, we were staying in Pemaquid. Beautiful area, you're very lucky!

Thanks, we have two defenders here in Nobleboro! Pemaquid is great. Was actually down that way on Saturday afternoon in the D-90.

Happy Independence Day!
