Default USDA Prime Ribeye Steak at Costco for $16.99/lb

I just picked up 2.3lbs of it for about $40. They're sold in 2-2.5lb packs.

Much cheaper than what's advertised on the website, and anywhere else on the web!
http://www.costco.com/8---20-oz.-USD...&storeId=10301

This was at the Puente Hills Costco in So. Cal. YMMV

Hard to tell from the photo, but would you say that these packs are roughly alternator-sized? This is a good deal as even here in Texas we usually pay about $20/lb for choice ribeye.

That is the normal price for prime grade ribeye or strip steak at costco. I buy when its 14.99/lb. Their prime sirloin for 6.99/lb is a decent every-day steak.

Wtf. This is like their normal price for the past couple years. When Costco first started carrying USDA Prime steaks, they sometimes sold it for low as $7/lb for Prime ribeye. Now that was a deal.

Costco online prices are higher because of shipping costs are included.

I guess I'm on a different budget than you all. In this economy , I feel like I'm really splurging paying $4.99 lb. at my local Stater Bros. for Rib roast. I'm sure the cuts I get are nowhere near prime grade, but as an ex-meatcutter, I can't justify paying more than $5 lb. for red meat in my family meals.Maybe if I hit the lottery..... In the cut in the link; they are charging $23.99 a pound for bone as well.

im with ya. im sure $20/lb is a good price for this stuff, but i feel terrible when i have to pay over $3 a pound for ground beef! someday i do want to do a full cookout with prime meats though, just go all out for a change.

I'm cheap AND lazy, so its LoneStar and the $12.99 3 course dinner.

Good ground beef is $4 to $5 a lb at our Stater Bros, but a consequence of living in SoCal is that almost nobody sells aged beef due to the preference in Mexico of fresh cut aged at your house.

This. Takes a little bit of searching, but it's usually worth it for those who want it.

always wondered the how of aging beef. I like a steak now and then but slow cooked baby back ribs are my first choice for a meat.

Right now I have 2 racks of baby back ribs slow cooking in my sauce pot at 170f. Takes me about 18 hours to make them.

Get a smoker. It only takes about 5 hours and is much better.
