I see that Albertsons currently has a BOGO, or “Buy One Get One FREE” sale. When you see a good deal, always take the time to figure out the cost per pound. Albertsons three different price tiers for their meats: Select, Choice and Choice Angus (Stockman & Dakota). Like Vons, Albertons “brands” their Choice Angus beef to distinguish it from their cheaper Select grade of beef. Albertsons BOGO Boneless Chuck Steaks sounded like a good deal until I called the meat dept. & found you had to buy the “MaxPak” quantity of Stockman & Dakota at $6.49/lb. so that is just under $3.25/lb. and $1.38/lb. more than Food for Less.
Boneless Beef Chuck Steaks – Food for Less $1.87/lb. And the next best price is Von’s Rancher’s Reserve $2.27/lb.
Red Cherries – Frazier Farms $.99/lb. This is not a good deal, this is an awesome bargain! The regular price at other grocery stores has been $1.99/lb. – $2.50/lb.
Yellow Peaches -Food for Less $.77/lb. This is another awesome bargain because the regular price has been hovering around $2.49/lb.
Raspberries, Blackberries, Bluberries – Sprouts $.99/6 oz. basket
Here is a recipe for Bulgogi Beef marinade that you can use with the beef. This is enough for 1 lb. of beef or one of last week’s bargain chickens from Stater Bro. Marinate the thinly sliced beef, or the chicken cut into serving pieces, at least 2 hours or overnight in the frig. Bring meat in marinade to room temperature before grilling.
Bulgogi Beef Marinade
Mix thoroughly until dissolved:
•3 Tbsp chopped garlic (about 2 cloves)
•3 Tbsp soy sauce
•2 Tbsp sugar
•1 Tbsp honey
•2 Tbsp fresh squeezed juice from an Asian pear
•1 Tbsp Japanese rice wine (mirin)*
•1 Tbsp sesame oil
•3 green onions, finely chopped (including white part)
•1 tsp pepper
Here is a reprint of my Super Easy Fruit Cobbler recipe for those the peaches and berries:
Super Easy Fruit Cobbler
1 stick melted butter
1/2 c. sugar
1 c. flour
1 t. baking powder
1/2 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. ground nutmeg
4 C. 1 inch pieces of fruit or berries
Mix all the above together and pour over fruit or berries. Then sprinkle 1/2 cup sugar over batter. Pour 1/2 cup water over sugar and batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
Note: For really watery fruit like strawberries, pour only 1/4 water over sugar and batter.
