Look what I have to work with...

Thread Starter 

All this week  we are cutting and packaging lots of standing rib roasts like these





The one on the bottom of the first pic goes home with me to thank my neighbor for snowplowing our driveway for the winter.

It sure is hard to let some of these beautys go!

I just picked up another 12 pounder today.  It's still on sale here at $4.77 per pound.  So far, I've bought about 42 pounds and cut most of it into steaks.icon_eek.gif

It's still above $5.00 here, I'm tryin' to hold out and see how low it will get, If it hits the $4.99 mark I'm going all in!

Working with those would bankrupt me, I would have to buy as many as the freezer would hold...

We are selling them for $5.99 lb this year...the meat director for our chain of stores went with $6.99 lb for all the other stores.

I made an executive decision and lowered it for our store to drive more sales.

It seems to be working well!

Nice looking rib roasts, ahhh how well I remember!  Our oldest son just ordered a full 7 rib for Christmas dinner last weekend from Albertson's for us.  Many many many moons ago at my dad's store we had to order in extra forequarters to have enough ribs for Christmas.  20 or more fores to have enough for customers.  And, that was 20 or more chucks, shanks and plates we'd have to get rid of the following week!  Of course this was long before boxed beef. But, dad was a good merchandiser and was creative; he'd turn most of the plates into beef bacon, sell the shanks in ground round sales and knuckle bone soup sales, bone out the chucks into english, shoulder clod and chuck roll roasts for corned beef and freeze them for later pickling for St. Patty's day, and make up big 70lb. batches of beef and pork meatballs and freeze them for retail sales (as he had a processing license he could do this) and use up all the trimmings.  Me and my brother had the arduous task of scooping out and hand-rolling all the meatballs, laying them out on full sheet baking trays and decorating with paprika and parsley, then traying them up in foil trays 12 meatballs to a package, wrapping, labeling and freezing them.  Customers loved the meatballs as they could just thaw and cook them, no messy work involved (again long before commercially made meatballs came into being).

 And today I made the masterpiece

A whole 7 bone standing rib roast. I doubt anyone will buy it but I just had to do it for the wow factor in the case!







 Thanks for suffering along with me!
