After digging through every BD offer I decided the qpr of wines I’ve purchased here is at least comparable if not better than (most of) those offered during BD. The steaks were tempting but Costco’s prime NY strips are pretty good at less than a third the price.
@DanNC Almost none of the wines you’d find there will ever be available here. But you’re right, the value proposition is usually lower than what you get here.
Flannery is nothing like Costco USDA Prime. Dry ageing dramatically changes the flavour and texture of beef. You may or may not prefer it, but I strongly prefer it. To the point where I will buy a whole subprimal of Prime from Costco and dry age it myself.
@DanNC I just discovered this a couple months ago. Looked over Costco Steaks over the years but never bought, because I could usually find deals elsewhere. Was looking it over a couple months ago and noticed just a couple packs of prime NY string for (I think) $10.99. I grabbed some figuring it must be a mistake. But the price keeps coming back. They usually have just a couple of them. That some real steak love for $11/lb. Jeez my kids are spoiled. I had well-cooked round steak when I was a kid.
