    Depends on what cut though. A machine cutting some consistent striploin or rib eye is worth the money to do imo. I just don't buy stuff already cut because it is a noticeable price increase. But if Costco helped me cut the Ribeye or Striploin in the bag, I'd buy it more often.

    Basically it comes down to the logistics of ensuring you're going to buy the cyrovac so Costco can give you a better price than buying the already packed ones.
    OR: Costco could make it the same where if you buy the equivalent amount of a cyrovac, the already cut pieces end up being a cheaper price (ex: buy 6 packs, get 1 free) kind of thing.
    It's more expensive cause they need to pay the labour that cuts that meat - it would never be the same price. That's why you're getting the discount.

    Flame suit on, but I feel lucky that tenderloin doesn't do it, for me. I don't think I'm alone. Cutting it with my fork is not my top priority. It's way more money, way less forgiving to prepare and lacks the flavour of Strip Loin.

    As a needless aside, I noticed it cost something like $66/kg at the terrible Superstore when I was in Charlottetown. DaFuq?!?

    Tenderloin is not a desirable cut of steak to me either.

    Well yeah I get that, but I think there could be an in between where you are buying bulk and getting it cut, but still paying less than the already packed ones. Most people buying already cut ones are buying 1-2 packs, not 6+. I think there is a market for that.

    You don’t go to Costco for above and beyond service

    It’s the nature of the beast

    I asked the Costco butchers if I could buy a full pork belly and have them smoke it and slice it and sell it to me for less than the bacon.

    They didn't seem interested.

    It’s not my #1 favourite but I like it in the rotation because it’s leaner so makes me feel slightly better about myself while still enjoying steak. Also the only steak my kids can actually eat.

    Oh and also it’s the best for straight up raw eating. Small bite sized piece Dipped in salt & pepper, then wrapped in a small piece of pita bread with some onion. Not sure if this is a Lebanese/arab thing but I grew up enjoying it and still like it.

    I pretty well enjoy all the cuts of meat from a cow one way or another.

    I used to love tenderloin. Then I discovered ribeye is the best.

    And I hate you guys for the meat cutting analogies, lol.

    $7.88/lb Prime Rib roast at superstore today and tomorrow, which is less than half the price of Costco. Got one this morning and it looks closer to AAA than AA.

    Pretty high demand though, at least so far this morning. Had to fend off a swarm of Asian people to get my hand on a piece right as they bring them out.

    The one near my place put out whole cryovac sides, around $200 each. Marbling was poor, my batch was definitely AA.

    This is the last time I am going to try Superstore if it turns out bad.
