Becker Lane pork - Berkeley Bowl
Purchased some pork steaks (from pork butt) very recently. The prepared dish (simmered with soy sauce etc.) was somewhat ruined by the pronounced freezer/refrigerated taste of the meat. Have bought this cut before and it often tastes a little gamey to me, although my son prefers it. I think I may stick to the Becker regular chops, or switch back to Niman. Is this more of a BB problem, or a BL problem?

I've had some less than stellar experiences with pork and meat I purchased from BB where it tasted a little stale. For example, I've noticed a big difference in appearance and taste between Marin Sun Farms meat sold at BB and in Market Hall in Oakland. At Marin Sun Farms in Market Hall it's very fresh since it's direct from the purveyor. However, at BB, unless you go the day it's delivered, it's not as fresh.
