This Friday, 9/2/11, Whole Foods has its ground grass-fed beef on sale for $4.99/lb. This is up $1 from last year’s big sale, and they’ve limited the quantity to 10 lbs/person. Unfortunately, I think this is indicative of what beef prices are going to do this year. I’m sure you’ve all seen the news about the heat and drought in Texas. I wouldn’t have said this is a stock-up price, except I do think prices will be up this year.
If you haven’t cooked with grass-fed beef before, remember it is extra lean, so it does not require the same length of cooking time!
