You are right , Robert. When I go to Market, I go to the stores (ususally the same one(s) with the best reputation, the cleanest stores, etc. But, when I buy a frozen chicken, whether Tyson, or Sanderson, I have no idea how it has been treated or fed. How could I know?
I have a question kind of concerning this subject. I always buy "USDA Chice, Grade A " steaks, usually they also say "aged". A while back I was at market and the butcher was marking down some steaks that sell date was the next day. He told me " this is a hell of a deal on these steaks".
They were porter houses, "USDA Choice, Grase A , Aged". I bought a bunch of them, the price was fantastic. Now, I have cooked those steaks occasionally, over over two months now; we had a couple last night.
They are the best tasting damn steaks I think I have ever bought at market. They are as good as at Ruth Chris or Morton's. I have bought plenty of steaks over the years also marked with the same grading, etc.
Why were these steaks so much more flavorful, so much tastier, even the 'fat ' of the steaks was fantastic. Normally steaks graded like I said do taste fine, but not fantastic. How do I buy fantastic tasting steaks in the future , from market?
