Or install Flipp App on your phone and just search for what you're looking for. Loads all the flyers in your area, can search by item. Saved me flipping through all the flyers.
I swear by Flipp. It's the best thing ever.

Try Flipp - go into the app, search "steak" and it highlights everything for you.
It doesn't do $/kg comparison though. :). I keep telling my wife to use the app so she knows which grocer or two to visit for the bulk of the purchases.

not the ones i bought.
Is it the law that they have to disclose on the label that the meat has been mechanically tenderized?

I noticed the last time I was at Walmart that every cut of beef was labeled "mechanically tenderized".

They've changed their beef: it's now all Canadian Angus AAA.

The labels in all the GTA stores i've been to still have "Mechanically Tenderized" below the CAB title. While nothing wrong for the average cook/bbqer, it might turn some purists off...

You know you can talk to the meat guy and ask him to cut you thicker ones, right?
Yep, that's what I did at RCSS today. Got these two 16oz fantastically marbled 2 inch thick steaks for $16. And I got back 20% in PC Points. Can't wait to have them tomorrow!

Yup, I do this as well. Ask the butcher to cut you thicker steaks.....even specify centre cut. You can also grab the ones in the display case as they will be the same price. Usually they put thicker and better marbled cuts on 'display' yet they are the same price.

As discriptive as this is, still can't visualize the difference. I don't buy steaks enough maybe. Can someone link me with pictures to spot the difference?
If you click on the link to the article linked above, the image shows you a half moon outline of white, connective tissue that shows that this steak is the one you don't want.

Look at the picture.

the walmart steak special is awesome, they had this deal on a few months ago, amazing steaks.
Aren't they heavily seasoned? IE salted like bacon?

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but the process of mechanically tenderizing beef transfers the bacteria from the outer surface of the steak to the inside, meaning you need to cook it more thoroughly. If you enjoy your steak medium to well done this is fine, but I like mine rare to medium rare. The bacteria that's transferred inside by mechanically tenderizing does not get "cooked" or "killed" at that temperature. Last time I saw the mechanically tenderized sticker on the Walmart packages they also had a recommended minimum temperature to cook the meat to.

Also whether tenderized at the store by the needle machine thingy or by you in the kitchen with a fork, it's the same idea.

This is true, however, you can still cook these medium rare...the risk of contamination is just higher. Costco also mechanically tenderizes their steaks, so I usually try to get my steaks from elsewhere even though people rave about Costco steaks.
