Of all the grocery stores I have spoken about on this website, Cattleman's Meat in Taylor, Michigan has gotten the most hits. So I decided to share with you my experience there this past Saturday (March 13th).
I came there looking for brisket to use on St. Patrick's Day. Last year, I bought a prepacked corn beef (which Cattleman's had plenty of) and did not like it at all. The biggest problem was the high salt level. So this year, I wanted a brisket that I could prepare from start to finish myself. They had brisket there for $2.99 a pound. So I bought an entire one. I headed to the back window to have the butchers slice it up for me. I choose to slice each end into a flat cut and a point cut (click here to read my post on the difference between these to cuts). The rest of the meat I had turned into stew meat, that I will use for 2 separate meals.
This was the only beef I bought this time. They also had beef tenderloin for $5.49 a pound, which is the regular price (I paid $4.99 a pound on sale last time I was there in December). Still that beats most places sale price. They also had top sirloin for $2.49 a pound.
Besides the brisket, I also purchased a pound of deli turkey. They have the cheapest prices on deli turkey around. And finally since I was thristy, I picked up a bottle of Frostop Orange & Creme.
