Meat. A lot of meat.

My parents recently butchered a cow and split the meat (and cost of butchering) between us kids.  For $103.11 BJ and I got the following:

  • 3 Chuck Roasts
  • 2 Arm Roasts
  • 1 Rump Roast
  • 1 Sirloin Tip Roast
  • 4 Rib Steaks
  • 2 Round Steaks
  • 4 T-Bone Steaks
  • 3 Top Sirloin Steaks
  • 4 Stew Meat packages
  • 1 Rib Steak/Top Sirloin Steak
  • 29 ground beef (1.5 pounds each)
Note: That's the number of packages.  I believe each package of steak comes with 2 or 4 steaks in it.  (I haven't opened one up to be sure.)  And the roasts vary in size, but they're all fairly large.

All in all, I think we got an awesome deal. I mean, even the hamburger alone I would have spent about $87 on at the grocery store.  That about pays for it all.  And steak and roasts cost a bit more than hamburger.

I think we'll be having beef for dinner for awhile.
