Aldi New York Strip...

Welp, we tried this New York Strip, Aldi Flat Iron steak (no pics), and Aldi Ribeye (posted earlier), and here is the verdict...
  • The Flat Iron edged out the New York Strip for first place.  Every bite was tender and juicy and there was no waste.  It was just the right portion size.
  • This New York Strip was second.  It was a full 1 1/2 inches thick, which allowed me to put a good sear on and still cook it to medium rare.  I was stuffed after eating this one.
  • The Ribeye was good, but too much fat to trim.
Meat is expensive these days and way too many steaks you get at the grocery store have no flavor.  I use this marinade:  1/4 c. oil, 1/4 c. soy sauce, a Tbsp. or 2 of catchup, a couple of cloves of garlic, a Tsp. or 2 of black pepper, and a splash of vinegar.

All of Aldi steaks were better than the local (unnamed) grocery store.   :happy1:

But you didn't add a cost to Oz comparison in your review.  Which one cost the most?   :scratch:

Honestly wasn't aware Aldi had steak, never been in one. Am I missing something? I heard about the weird cart/quarter thing. Someone told me the produce is good.  :confused:

John just like any store some will like it some will not...   at first I was very hesitant to go there...   but I did and have no regrets...   the fresh pizza is great too..  once you get used to having a quarter in your pocket all is good..  some girl scout type cookies are there too, at over 1/2 the price less... 

also you have bring your own bags and bag the stuff too...   no big deal...

Hmm, maybe I will have to stop in one and check it out, I have one close to my house in Blaine.

Aldi items can be miss and hit.  Try 'em and decide for yourself.  When we have the time we go to Aldi first and then the other store for what Aldi didn't have.

We get just about all our produce from the Aldi in GR, it's much better than what Super 1 & WM has. Bread, milk, breakfast cereal, & sometimes some steaks there as well. Like mike said their Momma Cozzi's pizza is good too. I don't think we've really found anything we buy there that we don't like.  :scratch:

Made cheeseburgers on the grill last night and they were excellent with the cheese melted a little before pulling them off the grill! 😋😋🍔🍔

The one in Owatonna looks a little suspect. Doesn't seem to be a lot of cars parked in the lot... :scratch:

I got 10 different food stores  well before I get to that one, I'll pass, not worth the gas. Not a fan of off brand products besides   :pouty:

from what I hear the St. Cloud location is over run by certain folks and not the cleanest...  seen the one in Sartell too..  in a nice area...

I get quite a few things at Aldi. They have the lowest price for ribs when on sale. BUT.....I won't buy chips there. Got a bag home and they were all crushed. Also last week bought a box of Raisin Bran there. Got home and opened it and not 1 raisin in the whole box. Not buying that there anymore.

Ok so somehow I missed this. Bobber does wrapping bacon around whole potatoes do anything for the potato or just to have with them? Never heard of anyone doing that before.

Glenn with your palate I don't you get to be a food critic.  :rotflmao:

I am fully aware bacon makes everything better, just didn't think it would do anything through the tatter skin.

Not really sure John,  been doing it for years. Used to always wrap in bacon then foil it to let the tater cook in the grease,  now I've just skipped the foil. I always slice the spud, add everything and eat the skin and all. That way you get fresh bacon in every bite.
