[Sobeys] Striploin steak AAA Sterling Silver $8.99 AA $6.99

Starting Thursday 25 Feb, Sobey’s has their Sterling Silver AAA on sale for $8.99/lb. The AA is $6.99/lb.

I have always had good luck with Sterling Silver and prefer it over other retailers including Costco.

Tip: Ask the butcher for the steaks in the display cabinet as they always put the best cuts on display. Or, as I do, ask them to cut to your specs from a whole loin, centre cut.

It's just a company owns some farms and sells beef. For some reason their steaks taste much better than the shit I buy at Metro.

Correct! Just a company name. The big companies are Cargill and JBS. Their stuff is what the majority eat

What's actually the difference between AAA vs AA? Is AAA worth $2 premium?

Not to knock the sale price but it is a pretty regular thing at the Weston family of stores.

Typically more marbling with AAA. More marbling= more flavour. Worth the premium IMO. I would not ever buy AA.

For Sobey's meat it means AAA, that's all.
Yes, IMO it's worth the $2 extra.

The quality chasm between AA and AAA is gigantic. AAA is soooo much better it's rather ridiculous.

There can also be a large gap between two pieces of AAA. You have to know how to pick ‘em..........

Center cut make a difference?

Yes. It’s the cut closer to the rib and will not have the veining and connective tissue of the end cut. Avoid the ‘half-moon’ tell tale sign of an end cut..

I have found great marbled AA steaks numerous times at my sobeys, they were always excellent. Ive even had the butcher recommend it to me when the marbling is good.

is ok deal. There was better deal before for AAA Ribeye at the same price.
Personally, I like beef from Longo's better, Don't get me wrong, Sobeys is not bad, I just prefer Longo's more.

Thoughts on this versus the AAA Angus T-Bone Stake selling at Longo's $10/lb ?

I would go for Longo's T-Bone. Best to ask them to cut it for you so you can have a thicker cut.

Striploin for me. Granted the bone may add flavour, but you are also paying for the bone. With a T-bone, you have the strip, the bone and the filet. The filet lacks flavour. The bone is.....well.....the bone.
Why not just have the strip? Less work too.

And you can get the butcher to cut to your desired thickness. Or by the roast and cut your own.

I guarantee most of these peasants couldn't tell the difference in taste between an AAA and an AA strip.
