A couple weeks ago I stopped at Costco to get some cheese. That's it. Only three blocks of cheese and I'm leaving. Turns out they were running a special. If you buy 3 blocks of cheese for $312 you get a 15# USDA Prime beef toploin roast, a 9# pork loin, two cases of diet coke (for Tracy), twelve 2-liter bottles of margaritas, and a few other things ABSOLUTELY FEE!! What a deal. I just couldn't turn it down :emoji_laughing: So I get home and have this toploin roast and had no clue what to do with it so decided to cut it down into NY Strip steaks. Got 12 steaks that were a full 1 1/2" thick (I measured each one as I cut them). After a less than gratifying experience a few weeks ago with a NY Roast I bought online I was really hoping for something better this time. But hey, it was free, right? :emoji_wink: Got a couple out to grill up the other night.

The steaks

Seasoned up with some Pit Faced On Point rub

Doing some fried taters in my new birthday cookware. Seasoned with garlic EVOO and SPOG

Tracy decided we needed some green onions in the taters

Onto the grill over the sear burner. Got the temp dialed down a bit so only running about 800*

Flip. Got some nice grill marks going
007.jpg


Plated with the taters and a salad. Kind of a blurry pic. I seem to be getting really good at taking bad pictures

Cut away shot. Steaks are perfect!! Pulled at 125, let rest a few minutes, and they came out really well

I've kind of been on a quest to find some good quality meat at a decent price that I don't have to buy 50# of. I can get the roasts from CPB but getting a whole case is just more than we need, especially when added to the other stuff I am getting by the case. These turned out to be exactly what I've been looking for. The steaks were fantastic. Not quite the deep, rich, beefy flavor of CPB but at a price point of $7.99/lb (but mine was free of course :emoji_sunglasses:) I'm more than fine with this. We both agreed that this was the best "bang for the buck" steak we've ever had. One day I may check with a forum friend that lives in the area and see if he wants to split a case from CPB but for the time being, I'm really happy with these and will keep them on hand.

(Disclaimer: the butcher I talked to at Costco said it was a "toploin" and that is what was on the label he printed but I'm seeing conflicting info on the 'Net)

This one is a wrap. Stay safe and I'll see everybody again soon I hope.

Great looking meal Robert. The steak looks perfectly cooked and the taters too. How did you find out about that deal? That was a good deal.

Beautiful looking steak Robert! Glad you found some good quality at Costco. I'm rarely disappointed with sam's club prime beef. Not cpb but usually pretty good. Happy late birthday bud

Excellent cook Robert! Steaks cooked perfectly. You got one heck of a deal. NY Strips are my favorite steak. I really like the Sam's Prime, when they have it. Great job, and your pictures are really good. Happy belated Birthday.
