No Name Steaks Tue, 12/5/06 7:39 PM (permalink)
I know i know, hardly a prime cut but Meijer has them on sale for $9.99, reg $16.99. Well i bit. I've wanted to try these but not for the regular price. I got the 4.5 oz Petite Cut (all they had left)- six portions. Actually better than an Allen Bros Dry Aged ribeye.... But you know, for a quick weeknight dinner for myself it was pretty tasty. These things are tenderized to the hilt but it tasted good too! At 10 bucks i thought it was a pretty decent find. And BTW i have an Allen Brothers catalog sitting right here. Truly remarkable. Probably not gonna fit into this year's budget though.

    LOL, i had a feeling this wouldn't go over well here. They weren't "that" bad. [|)]

      I must be missing something here. I found Meijer's and Allen Brothers, and I think that you're referring to a steak from Meijer's as a "no-name steak." But what's the problem? Around my house fancy and expensive is for splurges; the rest of the time we eat. . . well, in Louisiana we eat just about anything that isn't moving too fast and isn't trying to eat us. "Not that bad" may not be high praise, but at least it's neither poisonous nor downright noxious!

          Jeepguy...thanks for including the link...I too like good meat but hate paying the prices...the problem I have with noname is that everything is preseasoned....and that usually means...loaded with salt...I like to season meat myself so I can control the sodium....I even found that Sam's club's Perdue Chicken is different than the Perdue sold at the local stores...at Sam's Club it contains up to 12% solution to make it juicy and tender...and at the markets it contains up to 5% solution and is marked fit and tasty...otherwise..Sam's is my place for ribeyes, porterhouse and on occasion...the filet...as well as ribs, and pork...as they are not loaded up with solution like Smithfield pork...(sold at one of the local markets)....
          so...I guess if the preseasoning isn't an issue for you..I'm glad you enjoyed...but think about it this way....going back to the chicken I mentioned above....would you rather pay for chicken or the solution....me personally..I rather pay for chicken and then control what it marinates in...

              Went to the website and confirmed the above. Expensive too, even for fresh unmarinated meat.

                if you slow smoke any meat it usually is great.
                pop a steak in a primo at 700 degrees for 3 minutes a side any brand will be good.

                  They sound fine to me (not that there's a Meijer within 1,000 miles of me). I have two adolescent boys in the house, and some of the things we eat are a lot worse than brined and preseasoned. ...Sonic, for example, that place is nasty!

                    I will have to humblely disagree about Louisania dieterty habits. I have found residents of the rural areas have about the same rules as the Chinese. They eat anything w/ wings except airplanes and anything w/ legs except chairs and tables.

                    A mixed game gumbo w/ shine while swatting sketers is a good a life gets outside of NC. Now collards, greenbeans, pintos and cornbread in the Tennessee mountains is so close...maybe too close to call.

                      I stand corrected, suh. And having lived most of my life in TN, albeit the flat end, "beans, greens, and cornbread" is a way of life for us, too!

                        The Meijer stores in my area don't carry the No Name stuff, but yesterday I spotted some in Kroger's. I went ahead and bought one box of some sort of steak and tossed it in the freezer. It seemed expensive.

                          Michael, please take it easy on me, i Did say they "weren't that good". I was only curious about these things. Maybe good for breakfast with a couple scrambled eggs w/cheddar next time.

                            No, no. I wasn't dumping on you. I'm looking forward to trying them. They seem to be of a size that will allow for quick cooking in a grill pan, and that's a neat idea. I bought the particular one I got because that was the only beef item they had. The rest of the No Name stuff was chicken.
