I just had THE WORST steak ever!
We were on a REALLY tight budget this week so I bought all my meat at Walmart, which I usually NEVER do.
A part of that purchase was two tenderloin steaks. I have eaten A LOT of tenderloin in my life. While I would not say I am an expert on an Emeril or Gordon Ramsy level, I do know a thing or two about steak.
Well these were disgusting. You know how some ham isn't a "natural" ham? It's actually like ham pieces that they press all back together and add water and ham flavoring? Well I think Walmart does that to their steaks.
There was no grain to the meat......that made me nervous immediately. It felt rubbery as I was cutting it.
Then I (gulp) tasted it. It actually took all I had to choke it down. Not only was it the ODDEST texture I have EVER encountered in a meat, but it tasted like rubber injected with bouillon cube juice.
NEVER by steak, pork or hamburger at Walmart, it sucks.
I stick to turkeys and spiral hams from there.
People it doesn't get much nastier than what I had tonight.
I know we are on a budget right now, but this Montana-home-grown-cattle-ranch-beef girl will NOT suffer through another one of those again!
Note: This is a warning, and my personal opinion. I shop at Walmart all the time, just my experience and opinion on one product (or three).
Love you enough to warn you......
