There was a guy in a freezer truck going through my apartment complex selling steaks by the case.

I got 1 case with:

6 - KC Strip
10 - Tenderloin Filet
6 - Ribeyes
10 - Pepper Steaks (strip steaks with black pepper)
8 - NY Strip
12 - Chopped Steaks

Price $149

Looks like I'll have plenty of beef to get me through the rest of the winter.

I'm such a sucker. They're good looking steaks though and they came in professional packaging.

The packaging says it's from midwestern beef and labels say "Product of Minnesota". All the boxes are stamped USDA Inspected and Approved.

I like the irony of a guy in Texas buying steaks from Minnesota from a guy in a van.  

Of course, we expect a AAR, Dinner Pic(s), and at least a 8/10 rant based on something related to your steaks.

1. It wasn't a van, it was like a Schwan's truck.

2. Why do you expect a rant? You think these will be bad steaks?

Well, unless he personally drove them down from MN in the freezer truck, I'd be hesitant about them.  I'm sure that they're fine overall, I just think you could have gotten fresher stuff locally for same or better price.  But, I could be wrong.  Maybe you've lucked into a 'best thing ever' and I'll be the one trying to organize a group buy of these!

The rant is more cause, well, this is arfcom.  SOMETHING has to happen that will be rant worthy.  Showersteak, ATF raid cause the steaks are without their tax tag, You'll put beans on them, or forget the bacon....something will happen.

WASHINGTON, August 5, 2003— Howard Beef Processors, doing business as Ellison Farms, a Pipestone, Minn., establishment, is voluntarily recalling approximately 194,700 pounds of frozen ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today.

The products subject to recall bear the establishment code "EST. 8934" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

Do you really think I need to be worried?

Around here they are called Capital Meats, the shady looking dudes on parole selling steaks out of the back of a truck. I bought a few hundred dollars once, they pretty much sucked ass.
