All summer long Brisket will go on sale for between 1.29-.79/#. I start buying at .99/#.
BTW Brisket ,if you are not from Texas, is beef shoulder.
When it hits these low prices it's time to buy your stew meat. Buy this meat and cut it into stew meat chunks. This will save you at least $1.59/# off the cost of stew meat! Beef rarely sales for less than $1.99/# so this meat is a great deal for the conscientious homemaker.
Be sure to buy enough so your dear husband can BBQ or slow roast it also. Use your leftovers for black bean soup or pulled BBQ Beef sandwiches...yummy.
