A few years ago, somebody here directed me to my local butcher. Thanks, whoever you be.

I'd prefer to season it myself anyway.

I guarantee I do a better job than the store.

I prefer to buy fresh meat from a few specific places in town, when convenience or budget dictates differently I don't hold back from buying marked to move meat, I am always cooking it that evening if I am in that situation. I never buy preseasoned, I season to match sides or wines and you can't get some Generic "seasoned" meat.

Though I would never buy meat from wal mart, my local SAMs has surprisingly high quality meat. I buy pork chops (bnls loin cut about an inch thick) boneless chicken breasts in family packs once a month or so freeze what I don't plan to use over the next week and am very happy with the quality. When I can't get (or afford) beef tenderloin filets from my prefered butcher, SAMs is actually the best replacement in town (Shreveport). I have not found myself trying any other of their meats but would be willing to do so when the opportunity arises.

What I want to know is when did 'select' become the new 'choice'?

When the health issue nuts decided that less marbling means lower fat, which is "healthier" and should therefore be more expensive.

The reality, however, remains unchanged:

Quote:
USDA Select is not very far above the bottom of the edible barrel, though some major chain stores will try and infer to a consumer that Select is a premium grade that is often marketed with a "catchy brand".

USDA Select is generally the lowest grade of steak you will find at a supermarket or restaurant. You will find it tougher, less juicy and less flavorful since it is leaner that Prime and Choice with very little marbling. The texture of Select is generally more coarse. Therefore, Select is not nearly as enjoyable or desirable.

Most smaller, locally owned grocery chains get their meat locally. I know the one I primarily go to gets the whole cow, pig, whatever from local farms and will gladly cut the meat however you want. There is also a local meat store I'll go to that does the same thing. Why go to the national chain and buy cattle from God-only-know-where that was fed with God-only-knows-what?

Sam's actually is the best deal/meat around for me. I get Flank, Rib Eye, Country Ribs from there and am quite satisfied by the price and the quality of the meat. I just picked up 8LBS of thick sliced bacon for around 15 bucks. The deals on the Roasts (beef or pork)are real good.

I don't usually buy seasoned meat because I feel like I can do it myself. Anywho, I read once that meat sold in the grocery store sells better when it's red, because that appears to be fresher. However, meat tastes better when it's aged for a few days and cooked after it's brown. The advice was from a chef who just chalked it up to the uneducated American consumer.

In short though, I'm not too concerned about my meat as long as it smells fine AFTER I cook it. If it's cooked thoroughly and smells delicious, it should be fine (same goes for veggies that are a little older than they should be).

High end restaurants have their own meat aging rooms and charge premium prices for aged heavy beef. If you saw it, you'd think it needed to be thrown out.

Dry aged beef sits on a shelf in a tightly controlled temp and humidity room for up to a month.



http://www.ifood.tv/blog/what-is-the...-wet-aged-beef

They line the walls of the aging room with rock salt blocks to soak up any humidity in the air.

Another vote for Sam's. I buy the marinated pork loin (4 lbs), ribeyes, and even the hamburger pattys. Pork chops also.
