Where to buy good ribeye in SF?
I am trying to buy some boneless rib-eye steaks rated USDA Prime.
I don't really care how they age it at the moment.
I hear costco has them, but I have not seen them lately, and I hear that they have an inconsistent supply of them.
A lot of butchers in SF have locally sourced, independently farmed, grass-fed, organic, 45 day age, blah blah blah. I don't need all that. I just need a fairly priced standard boneless USDA prime ribeye. I am mainly concerned about having enough marbleization.
If the price is 10.99$/lb or less, I don't mind any rec between Santa Clara County and SF County, on the west side of the bay.
The USDA prime steaks I see occasionally are at multiples of $10.99. I am sure that the last time I picked up a blue styrofoam pack at Costco it was more than that by a few bucks.
Costco's prices on prime beef have gone up...but so has just about everything. $12.99/lb is still a very good value when you look at other prices. And you can definitely tell you're eating prime, i.e., better then choice grade.
