My local chinese restaurant charges $13 for a plate of black pepper beef. Are you saying the entire dish only has 17 grams of beef?

Just looking at the July 6 image, I think OP is saying that a dish contains around ~140g of beef,

Cant you read bro? may be you have a hard time understanding? he said using one 2.x kg can make 15 dishes, so say $120/15 it will cost him about $8 for the beef, so he doesn't pay $20+ at restaurant.

and your $13 black pepper beef is it tenderloin?

A 2kg pack that is drained portioned and then it looses another ~15% of weight in moisture while cooking = so 2kg - 5%liquid drain, - 15% water cookoff= 113g per dish

113g per dish has about 40% protein - this is still crazy bad money

Calm down bro.

So $120 will make him 15 dishes, is $8 per dish. That doesn't include the veggies, spices, other ingredients, time spent prepping/cooking/heating. The "15x" is irrelevant then. That would be like me saying bread is on for $1 a loaf, and costco sells 6 packs, so with one bulk pack I can make 35 sandwiches which is 35x more sandwiches than subway makes. You don't put "15x" unless you are comparing same size to same size. Otherwise why does it matter? Guess what? 2 packs of beef tenderloin will make 30x the amount of a chinese restaurant!!! WOAH!

I'm referring to the picture above. It's in cubes instead of slices.

Some restaurants will give less meat if you ordered from DD, Skip, Uber & other delivery apps.

I think they use the cheap beef tenderloin instead of this one. The one I posted is softer and more tender.

The cheaper one (also sold at Costco) is less tender and chewier.

I gave up buying meat at Costco. A local meat shop has better local meat at way cheaper prices. We can buy tenderloin on demand for usually less than $13/lb.

Thanks OP. The Costco near me hasn't had tenderloin in weeks, steaks or whole, Ive been waiting for this. And how all you haters, Beef tenderloin is many times better than the other cuts.

It's the same AAA beef. One has the silver skin trimmed off. If you find one more chewy, it's because you're prepping it wrong.

for a lean cut like tenderloin, does it matter much if it is AA or AAA? Before the pandemic, Loblaws will occasionally have cryovac whole tenderloin AA for $9.99/lb

Costco is AAA at $50/kg for trimmed, $30 for untrimmed. Look closer and you'll see the difference. Up to you to decide if that is worth $20/kg (hint: it's close, you lose a lot trimming a whole tenderloin if you do it properly).

Loblaws sells ungraded (I've never seen a grading for it at my Loblaws, ymmv) for $22/kg ($10/lb) when on sale.

LoL, u r the one didn't understand and making fun of OP by saying wow restaurant charing $750/kg for beef and wow 17grams of beef in a dish bullshit like that. How did u come up with that 2 numbers anyway, u made that up?

WOAH!!!! WOAH!!!! U finally understand by giving examples of bread, and 2 packs make 30x dishes. WOAH!! WOAH!!

But the 15times part, if u read ops again " If I make the same meat portion as them, I can make 15 times." He is talking about the beef, so whats wrong by using 15 times?
