Corned Beef Fail

Local readers get three guesses at which Longmeadow MA supermarket sold me this inedibly-fatty USDA Grade Shit corned beef.

Please don't tell me that corned beef is supposed to be fatty.  I took these slices from the leanest part of the cut, and this is the fat left after braising it in the oven all damn day.

Ding ding ding, Armata's!!!

When you were there, did you see the "sorry for the error" note on the door? They printed a $.49 price per pound for steamers.

Look at all that marbeling!

Wow the marbling, if this was Yakiniku I'd say you'd lucked out!

Leeanne - I saw the misprint in the flyer, too. I wonder how many people showed up looking for the 1974-priced clams? They didn't have any in stock the day I bought that corned beef.

cecikierk and Dennis K - Yes, the fat was wonderfully marbled with little strands of meat.

Fry that stuff like bacon!

steve06082 - Too late for that. I hung the chunk out by the bird feeder like a suet cake. My wife tells me that a couple of small woodpeckers have been nomming the hell out of it.
