blink.gif holy moly blind prophet! That's insane. That bill would be half that here. I thought $10/kg for t-bone too much. Cheaper cuts are $5/kg.

kg is what 2.2 pounds? For a new york strip that would be about 9 dollars roughly per single pound, For Rib eye maybe 10-11 dollars a pound, similar for a porterhouse, these would be at your average grocery store, without waiting for a special sale.

You could shave some of that if you only bought when they were on sale. And not Prime cut meats, I don't even want to know what that will cost ya now. Filet mignon would always be expensive on a per pound basis.

A few years ago speculators manipulated the pork belly market in the USA. They ended up bankrupting some pig farmers/ranchers in the process. The price of things like bacon skyrocketed.

Tomorrow’s hamburger may cost as much as today’s steak
Beef prices expected to rise through 2016

Retail beef prices have climbed once again. From January to February, the prices that consumers paid for meat, poultry fish and egg climbed 1.2% (and over the past 12 months, 4%), according to government data ; that’s compared with 0.4% (and 1.4%) for food overall. The data shows that urban consumers paid an average of nearly $3.56 per pound for 100% ground beef.

What’s more, experts say that climbing beef prices are here to stay. The USDA’s Economic Research Service projects that beef prices will rise faster than almost anything else this year. Don Close, a cattle economist with Rabo AgriFinance says he thinks prices this year could rise 7% to 8% and roughly the same amount in 2015. Kevin Good, a senior analyst at cattle research firm CattleFax, says that “higher prices will continue through 2015 or 2016.”

No, that's 2.2 lbs of cheap cuts for $5. I can get a 1" thick 2lb t-bone for $10. On sale.

I'm not sure what the average T-bone would cost you per pound, but double what you are paying basically for a porterhouse, the steaks are roughly the same unless you want to make sure you are getting a good amount of filet.

I'd assume you are paying a lot less than I am out here in California, and your T-bone may qualify as a porterhouse as well.

There's a lot of ranchers around here, you can buy a steer for $400 and have it cut and wrapped for about $1.50/lb, ends up costing ~ $3/lb for all of it, steak, roast, ground. And the rancher gets more if it's bought locally. The distributors pay minimum.

Is a shame for it to be this way in America. We have so much open land, were at one point by far the biggest agricultural exporter in the world. Dang shame, would be good for us, and the world going back to becoming more agrarian, the USA could supply a massive amount of food if government and economic policy once again supported such things.

Dang shame.

Beef is quite expensive here too, but overall the food prices have come down. 13.gif
I was surprised to see the price of blueberries had dropped to under 7 euros/kilo last time I bought some. We always stock up on beef when it's on sale, meaning it's 5-10 euros per kilo depending on the cut. We found roast beef for 3.99/kilo last month and had the freezer full. chuckle.gif

Inflation slows as runaway food prices stall

The US is cheap food.. a loaf of bread at my local shops in OZ, is between 7 and 10 bucks.,. granted it is sour dough and pretty effen amazing.. im sure they put some cocaine in it.. i think reg bread in a supermarket is maybe 5 bucks, but its not great bread.. better to make your own.. at least you know whats going in it..

we have a wholesale butcher across the road from my house that supplies to all the restaurants in the inner city, so a kilo and a half of diced beef (to make a beef curry) is $15.. which is not bad.. its not organic though.. i usually only buy organic at a grocer around the corner and its usually the same price as non organic, for mince and cheap cuts of steak..

Lidl, a German supermarket chain, moved in here and we've watched the old lazy grocery cartel that existed lower their prices.
Competition is a wonderful thing for consumers. It's obvious the cartels that existed worked together to limit choice and keep prices high.

I stopped buying chicken wings all together. Just 5 years ago they were .89 cents a pound. I saw them 'On Sale' this weekend $2.99 cents per pound. Sheesh.

I have a bread machine and make most of our bread. But the Price of Bread flour is souring as well. So is the three packs of Yeast I buy. Went from 99 cents a Three pak to 3.99 a three pack in less than a year.

Its almost as if they know your trying to beat the system by making your own bread.

Beef is no longer on the menu because of the price. Pork and Chicken. Fish if its on sale .

Im not sure where this is going, but I don't see any prices being lowered any time soon.

I see Elderly people pushing carts through the store, with 1 banana and a can of dog food and such.

I fear they may be eating this dog food because its what they can afford.

damned.gif

yeah its all part of the nanny state getting control over you, making sure no one gets by big brother. Bro at my job, the food prices are crazy! my boss livin rich as hell and I'm here bustin my A.

We're seeing a totalitairian take-over of America through inflation, Obama Care, and Fedral and Offshore banks.

Bro the way I see it, things are only gonna get worse unless the people do something about it.

Well, I see rising prices too but I have adapted by buying and cooking with less meat and more dried beans/legumes (the price is about 20x less than canned) and barley/rice (in bulk), then just buy organic veggies when on sale, and there you have it. Although, I just got my tax cheque and so I went on a plurge at the grocery store and bought a few luxury items and experimental cooking items, such as green chili salsa.
