Price of beef

Yesterday I ordered beef rib from the butcher, he cut it especially for me, doesnīt seem to be a popular cut in Germany because I have never seen it in any butchers shop or supermarket
I collected it today and as I hadnīt checked the price per kg. yesterday I nearly passed out at the price 1.29kg @ €24.00 kg cost €31.06, is beef this expensive in the UK?
Still recovering, Jan

When they say "it's not a common cut" do they just bin it otherwise then, butcher are masters at taking the wee I reckon.

Did you mean top rib of beef, as inT bone and rib eye. best roasting joint of all. am I correct when I say that oven roasting a joint is not as common over there in Europe as it is here in the UK.As price, well it is that time of year when anything gets overpriced.Converting it into proper coinage, I would say that is about the right price.

Don't be silly all the time ask your question.

Thanks Kev.
No they donīt bin it, they do other things with it, smoked or something , but not in the joint as we know it.

Sounds a bit expensive for dog food.

How much were the sausages for Hans?

I think it is Jan

But I rarely buy it , I buy a full sirloin , hang it for two to three weeks , Ģ25 from my brother in law , cost price

But rib of beef is so special

So if it's your Christmas meal enjoy it

I like it rare

Merry Christmas

We will have turkey and belly pork

I love belly pork, but you can't get the really fatty ones these days

I'm not so good on prices of special cuts as I tend to get them via Alberts brother

Thanks for all the sensible answers. Perhaps I should have checked with you first
It is for Christmas day Sandra, only the two of us so I thought it would be a treat, well at this price it is.
In England we had Rib of beef quite often, I donīt remember it being so expensive, but then I am not the best at remembering prices, if I want something I usually buy it and donīt look at the price, but this seemed excessive.

I picked up a small strip light the other day, ideal to go above the computer thought I, got to the checkout €92.99, I left it there

This is the cut cabby

I think that would be the T bone steak if individually cut

The truth is no one can recommend price

So much depends on the beef

Grass fed etc

So you cook it and enjoy it as a special meal for Christmas

And tell us how much you both enjoyed it

Love

Sandra
