At the end of each shipping day, we gather up all the steaks that didn’t ship out, individually package them and tuck them away in the freezer awaiting a good home. Why freeze them you ask? Even if you didn’t ask, I’m going to tell you; when cut into steaks, they’re at the peak of perfection and trying to keep them fresh for a day or two will add nothing to them. Freezing on the other hand will not hurt them but rather stop them in time when they are perfect. It allows us the ability to manage inventory and be able to ship multiple units on the spur of the moment.
As a result, we end up on the Island of Misfit Steaks, known in these parts as Helluva Deal Atoll. Just like in the movie, there is nothing wrong with them other than they don’t match the others; some will be from the loin end, others from the rib end; some 12 ounces, some 14 to 16 ounces. All in all, a motley crew that we guarantee will melt in your mouth; just don’t look at them first. Actually I’m getting carried away, they are just fine and the degree of difference is really not that great; they’re perfect for family and friends….only lacking a “formal uniformity”.
So to answer the original question, the deal is just that, the same quality steaks aged between 30 and 50 days; sourced from both the Midwest and California; simply put, priced aggressively because they’re not carbon copies.
