Chilebrown at home

Safeway Grocery Store is our go to store for most food staples. It is close and convenient. They are not known for having a quality meat selection. In fact their Safeway Brand meat called Safeway Select is almost laughable in how low quality it can be. We usually go on Meat Adventures to purchase good meat until today.

We got a heads up that one branch of Safeway in Livermore had Snake River Farms beef in their meat department. Those of you not familiar with Snake River Farm they are a very high quality American Waygu beef purveyor. A lot of barbeque competitors use this beef in competition. We are no strangers to this product because Ms. Goofy has gifted me this product several times. It is some of the best and with this title it also has a very high price tag. It was a little shock that Safeway would carry this product.

This particular branch of Safeway is an hour drive. In fact we drove by a dozen other Safeways to our destination. Sure enough our Snake River Farm products were available. I broke out the credit card and bought an assortment of steak. Boneless Rib-Eye, New York strip, and two decadent filets. You could see the beautiful fat marbling throughout these quality steaks. I also had the butcher cut the New York two inches thick. You should see the smile on my face. 
  We are happy today with our quality purchase. Only time will tell if more Safeway's will carry the Snake River Farms meats. Until then we will enjoy our steaks today.

I wouldn't go to our Safeway location if they GAVE that meat away. Self preservasion and all ya know.

The Alameda Safeway reliably has unbranded Prime tri-tip at a very reasonable price; that would be a logical location to stock SRF. I'll report back if I see it.

Chilebrown said...

Aaron, Good to know about the tri-tip. Alameda is a lot closer. Thanks.

That's some fine looking steaks you bought.

Chilebrown said...

Big Dude, They sure taste good too.
