Door-to-Door Steaks from Steak House Brand - Temptation Won Out - BIGGEST Mistake EVER! (Learn From My Mistake!)
So when they gave me a great deal, temptation won out! I'm talking a GREAT deal, and the frozen steaks looked pretty darn good - small, but good.
Boy am I disappointed that temptation won. This was one of my biggest mistakes EVER! I don't consider myself a steak snob, but we bbq steak, chicken, fish, etc quite often (almost every night). I LOVE my local Safeway Rancher's Reserve steaks (only had 2 that we've ever not liked - in YEARS). So the first time I thawed these steaks, I thought, ok - a bad batch, so I tried a different steak from the package I bought... same thing. Yuck!
OK - here are some of the packages (beef, I didn't copy the chicken, pork or seafood):
I bought the "USDA Choice PREMIUM" package, and there was nothing Choice or Premium about it. The steaks were watery (gel-like), and flavorless, and the texture was... indescribable. My husband ate one bite and told me to toss it in the garbage - we don't throw steaks into the garbage... Same thing happened the second time I cooked the steaks - so I gave up.
I tried the 1/2 lb. Steak Burgers, thinking to myself "it's REALLY hard to mess up a burger - right?" Well, I was wrong again! Seriously, the burgers made it to the grill, where they promptly lost about 1/2 their size... when we went to eat them, they were mushy and tasted like cardboard.
So, I gave up. Tossed them ALL and will NEVER again try these steaks from www.meatydelivery.com - WORST MISTAKE EVER!!!!
The only small glimmer on the horizon is that I didn't pay even 1/2 what the "Six Pack Special" price shows.
Please learn from my mistake and avoid at all costs!
I honestly don't know where they got all the good reviews showing on the site - these were the worst pieces of "beef" I've ever experienced!
*Disclosure: Nothing to disclose here other than my utter disappointment in myself for this one. I bought them myself.
