My ancient Foodsaver, that is.
I bought mine in the Pleistocene era -- obviously they're so much better now. But it does its job. I bought an entire filet of beef at Costco today for CDN $45 and it yielded THIRTEEN 1.25-inch steaks. If I bought those at my local butcher I would have paid about $130.
So you cut it yourself. That is the reward! Two inches thick? Go for it. But then you have to preserve the whole thing so you won't be eating steak every day for a month. Enter Foodsaver.
Also, check out my bargain 24 LARGE chicken thighs at only $25.00. Christ, I buy that at Metro, it's $40, easy.
Foodsavered! They'll last at least a year.
