Are you looking for a prime steak experience? Got a Hy-Vee store in your backyard?
Let us show you what you can find at one of my favorite Midwest stores.
💲 Steak Prices
The prices you see in this list were taken in June of 2022. I am including the regular price, not any sale prices.
|Sirloin Filet (wrapped in bacon)||$7.99 for 8 oz|
|New York Strip||$26.99/lb|
Top sirloin is the most affordable and I think it's a tasty steak as well. The Sirloin Filet wrapped in bacon would be a great date night at home steak. Two of those for $16, some homemade veggies and you are still under what it would be eating out.
Sometimes you see NY Strip and Ribeye steaks for the same price but in this case the Ribeye is more. I tend to like the Ribeye better so I always pick them when they are the same price.
🥊 Top Sirloin vs. Sirloin Filet
A Sirloin filet steak is taken from the most tender part of the Top Sirloin. The ones I found at Hy-Vee just so happened be to wrapped in bacon like you often see with tenderloin or filet mignon but for a cheaper price.
One method that I have cooked top sirloin before is in the oven under the broiler. A lot of people never use them but they are great especially when a grill isn't available.

🥩 Compared to Costco
When it comes down to comparing the price between Hy-Vee and Costco on prime beef, Costco is significantly cheaper on all steaks. You can get Prime Top Sirloin for $10.49/lb as compared to $12.99 and Ribeye is $7 a pound cheaper at Costco.
When it comes down to quality I would need to compare them side by side to know for sure. I have been happy with my meat purchases from Costco and I do think Hy-Vee has quality products. So it could be a close call.
When you are spending more money on a steak you don't want to screw it up. This usually means that you overcook it. There are two ways you can prevent overcooking that I recommend
- Using a probe or instant read thermometer
- Sous vide cooking
Both of these offer you precision. You can tell exactly when the steak is cooked to the temperature you want, you get that medium rare steak if that what's you want.
Since I got my immersion circulator I have never cooked a steak any other way than sous vide. You can see some of the steaks I have cooked this way for instructions on how to cook a sous vide steak. They all follow the same basic instructions.
I also recommend when you are eating a prime steak you keep the seasonings simple. You want to taste the quality of the beef, so stick to just salt and freshly ground black pepper. You don't need any marinades or steak sauce.
