  1. Thank you, worth the special trip, at least visually. Marvelous marbling, eating will have to wait.

      I tried finding out to see if it was a one week/one time deal but ran into a communication problem.

        Considering the price and the look of the meat I'll bet it one time and much less than a week. This grade is selling elsewhere for 2 to 3 times this price.

          This prediction on this thread probably eliminates my chances for the 2009 Nostradamus Award.

    2. Much thanks. Will definitely go sometime this week...hope I don't miss it.

        picked up a 3 pack of ribeyes this morning and they look beautiful...seasoning and hopefully eating them tomorrow. some of the most beautiful marbling i've seen.

          My Costco, El Camino in SSF, does not carry them : (

            Just grilled and had them this evening, rare to medium-rare....and yes...they were wonderful. Incredibly tender and buttery.

        2. We had some of these over Christmas from the Redwood City Costco (I think- maybe Mountain View). Sitting right next to the Choice you could see the obvious difference in marbling. They didn't have them a couple of weeks ago, so I think this is something to keep an eye on.

          It was a 4 pack of 1 3/4 inch boneless ribeye steaks. It was 27 for 4, so they must have been 8.99 a pound- the same deal I suppose.


          I followed these directions to a T for grilling and was able to grill steaks to 3 levels of doneness for guests with no guesswork. The guide is incredibly useful for thicker steaks.

            We live in a suburban community just outside of New York City. We purchase most of our meat from Costco. The filet mignon is wonderful, sooooooooo tender.
            If you like porterhouse, they are usually large enough for two people. The lamb chops are yummy as well.
            My husband persuades the manager to have the butchers custom cut the steaks for him. Enjoy

          2. I picked up a package at the Concord Costco yesterday. They also had NY strip for the same price. Can't remember seeing them before but I was looking specifically this time based on this thread, thanks! We have been recession proofing our meals around here so it was nice to splurge but still get a great deal. Have not tried them yet, but they look beautiful.

            1. Finally ate one, Tender, delicious. Butterflied my wife's half so hers would be her favorite well, well done and broiled them both the same time. Ergo medium rare for the thick 1/2. Grilled onions, salt and pepper, best in a long time. Back to Costco this AM to see if there are any left.
