Where I live here in Texas I do not have a store that doubles coupons and
recently our meat market closed due to the economy…so I have really had to watch sale
prices and save money where I can.
So for the 4th of July my local grocery store had large briskets on sale for
$1.98/pound while the ground beef was $2.99/pound or higher.
Since we are just a family of 4, don’t cook a large brisket very often,
and use ground beef in A LOT of different dinners here
is what I did:
My store has a meat department where they
were able to grind up the brisket and
separate it into about 1 pound packages. So by buying the brisket and having
it ground I saved about $1.00 a pound.
Just wanted to share because I was not aware that this could be done!
