These Cuts of Meat Can Save You Money — And Still Taste Great
Asking “chicken, beef, or pork?” doesn’t even begin to cover the dinner options available to meat lovers. Chances are, if you look at the meat section in your grocery store a little closer, you’ll see some cuts you’ve never noticed before. The following cuts of meat, often passed over for their more well-known counterparts, are just as delicious and can actually save you money. Here’s what you need to know to get a good deal in the meat department.

 
Top Round Steak

You might have seen this meat at the store, sometimes labeled London Broil, but we’re guessing you rarely — if ever — grab it. Top round has earned a reputation for being tough, but that’s not always its fate. This cut is perfect for medium cooking and begs to be doused in your favorite marinade. As long as you cut against the grain and don’t overcook it, top round can be a great addition to your dinner rotation…..

 

 

 
Flank Steak

You might see flank steak on its own at a restaurant, but it’s a lot easier to tenderize if incorporated into a larger dish when you’re doing all the work at home. Flank steak is one of a group of cuts called flat steaks, which are tougher cuts of meat. You’ll save money on this cut for two main reasons: your options for preparing flank steak are limited — you’ll have to work to get it tender — and it’s best served in a dish like fajitas, meaning your meat will go further than if you were eating a traditional steak dinner. You can also get away with buying a little less because everyone’s plate will be full of other fajita fixings.
