Great deal on grass fed beef

If you are a meat eater, and you live near a ShopRite - check it out. They have on sale this week whole beef tenderloin for $2.00/lb with an additional $15 purchase. This is grass fed, free range beef!!


I bought a $17 tenderloin (which was a relatively small one), which I had the butcher cut into steaks for me. This $17 package of meat came to $10 with the discount, and then I had an additional "$2.00 off of meat" coupon from buying 2 bags of tortilla chips (Snyder's of Hanover was the brand in case anyone wants the coupon, it came off the bag). So I wound up paying $8 for 17 filet mignon steaks of grass fed, free range beef!!


I think I might go back later in the week and get another! I have a Foodsaver, so I plan on vacuum sealing them in meal size portions and freezing. Woo hoo....


Plus...I got a coupon for a free gallon of milk on my next trip, lol...

Oops, just realized I wrote $2.00/lb...it was $2.99/lb - $2.00 off a pound...but that's still an amazing deal! I just finished repackaging it into Food Saver bags. I definitely think I am going back tomorrow or Wednesday for another one!

quick question, you had the actual butcher there cut into the steaks? Was reviewing the offer and it didn't look like that but if I can do that cool :) Also, have you cut into steaks yourself? Is it hard? WOndering if I could do it myself if I had to...

That is a killer deal!! When Filet Mignon is on "sale" here, the lowest price has been $7.99 a lb. The usual price is $12.99 and I have never seen grass fed beef advertised. Too bad I don't have a shop rite!!!!

I just brought the whole tenderloin right to the butcher's counter and asked them to cut it into steaks for me (whatever thickness you want). The guy cut it up and repackaged them in a tray - no additional charge!
