superlean ground beef by the pound?

any ideas? there are patties at TJs but i was wondering who sells it by the pound -- 95, 96% fat free

    1. Costco sells it frozen-5 pound package divided into 1lb rolls. We like it.

    2. trader joes and whole foods sells it by the pound. TJ's is prepackaged in one-pound packages that are about $3 (in the meat section - not the frozen section). whole foods runs a bit higher like b/w $3.99 - $5.99 lb.

          1. albertson's - at least the ones in santa monica and marina del rey - sells 96% both in patties and by the pound. o/t for this post maybe, but i have to say i disagree that it tastes the same as nearly fat-free ground turkey. IMHO, ground turkey has an "off," old poultry taste that requires a lot of seasoning or other ingredients to disguise. i wouldn't necessarily throw a 4% ground beef patty on the grill and expect a juicy, flavorful burger, but i definitely prefer it to turkey in things like meatloaf or meatballs.
