Chop meat in place of other meat.

While downsizing my food budget I began watching videos on food and budgets. A few wealthy people whom I forget the names now. No longer buy steak. They all buy chop meat and make magic happen with that. I never knew that was a thing but my daughter has been making many meals with only chicken or chop meat. Tonight I am taking out chop meat to cook down with spices then add steak sauce to it. since cutting out ribs and other meats my food budget has been great. My daughter is using chili powder and cummin oh boy. Something she has fallen in love with from India. Do you like steak at your place?

I love steak but never have it, chop meat is very good when you fry it with certain seasoning..I like playing around with different flavors.

I am loving the smell now since I added extra onion flakes. I am hoping it tastes great with my buttered rice.

@hillhjill I was upset to see the drop of sauce left in the bottle. I am getting more sauce to make me some more since I bought a huge thing of beef.

I love a good steak but only have them maybe once a month now. I find good deals on them. Sometimes I can find a small sirloin cheaper than ground beef and even ground turkey. I have a pack with two small ones in the freezer I paid $3.98 for.

That price would not be here for a steak. I am glad you found them.

@sharon6345 They have some very expensive steaks. I've been wanting a nice T-bone but not at $38! I told my son he can go in with me soon and we share it. It's huge so enough.

@noni1959 I am not sure how I would feed off that steak. I am sure I would have left overs.

We have steak every now and then especially in the summer when we can have it on the bbq. It is my favprite way to cook steak.

I never had steak on the grill before so I don't know how it tastes. I would love to try it out though.

We have steak a couple times a month. Not a every day thing since it is high in price.

a couple of times a month means they are not that high. I am sure they are good.

I do not like steak and we have a freezer full as we buy our cows by the 1/2 each year and steaks are part of it! However, my husband loves steak and so, I might eat a burger while he eats steak!

A love a good steak but it is not in my budget. So, only once in a while, I buy one. I use chicken and ground meat a lot. They can be cooked in many ways and they are cheaper. I am thinking about buying a not so expensive meat grinder.

I could imagine you making lots of dishes with the grinder.
