I think if you ever have seen the inside of a hack and pack house you wouldn't buy a thing, I was in a few back in the 80's when I worked with a friend doing commercial refrigeration. Just as some top notch dining places. The health goons can only do so much. Bottom line is, it's a crap shoot no matter what you buy, or where you go. I have found that most if not all ' sell today, or reduced for quick sale ' beef just goes into the grinder the next day.Another reason I grind my own meat. Is it better? I think so, but who knows how long some stupid person left it on the unloading dock while it was break time. Want fries with that?

I'll buy reduced meats sometimes if they look OK...but I'll never buy "reduced meats previously frozen"

That to me kinda equates to: they put the reduced meats sticker on it for quick sale before it "turns"..... and it STILL didn't sell ...so they BLAST FROZE it in hopes to stop the bacteria process and put it out for the consumers in one last ditch effort to save space in their dumpster.

But maybe that's just me & how it worked in the super market deli years ago that I worked at.


The weather is here.... wish you were beautiful

Imagine my disappointment if i were here to make you happy
