finally my summer job will help out here (stoopid deli)

if you are talking about grounded meat then you normally will have 3 choices (at least where i work)...Chuck, Sirloin, and Black Angus (aged beef)

chuck is a little bit more fatty, but when throwing burgers on the grill you would be loosing lots of the fat but still keeping the taste.

for meatballs, sloppy joes, and what-not sirloin is normally used as the grease doesn't go anywhere except get soaked up by the meat, and this would **** up your arteries fast. faster than a drunk sorrority chick hooking up with a football player after having 3 beers...you know what i mean....

black angus is for the rich people who care about this "flavor" gimick. it is aged, and tastes better, but more expensive, pretty lean nonetheless...

if you are talking about steaks, i.e. sirloin, strips, ribeye, etc....i have learned lots about that stuff too...summer jobs, bleh!

All the hype about Black Angus is true. I cant eat a steak that isnt black Angus anymore. Incredible tasting. Here in Ontario it is comparable in price to Triple A beef. It is very lean.

Is it ok to have steak 2- 3 times a day. Usually i buy a steak and cut it into 3. Or would that be to much fat?

It would depend on how much fat you are getting from the steak. I would say that it would be fine to eat steak 3 times per day, but then again I would not eat something like a ribeye for 3 meals.

i can't eat ribeye 3 meals in a row or i would be so damn lathargic...

as for black angus, some people swear by it just like ferdo said, but i just walked in from work (meat/deli counter) and one guy was pissed he spent the extra money on black angus...all personal prefrences...black angus = teh ace, IMO...

Round steaks very low in fat so it's very hard and chewy.

If you check their web page every few days, or get on their e-mailing list, you can get major price deals over their retail prices. Click on "Best Sellers" then on "Exclusive Offers" for the best prices.
