Capital Meats / bad meat
Here is the exact letter I submitted to the company; you be the judge.
I've been cooking for about 10 years now. I cook for family, friends, personnel in my military unit, etc. Initially when Charles (The sales guy) displayed the meat it looked pretty good. The steak, although frozen, was a nice red and looked pretty good. When the chicken display was pulled out, he opened the first pack and I stopped him. The chicken was pathetic and tiny. I told him not to bother with chicken. I also told him to forget the seafood because I don't trust frozen seafood, especially because I don't know what kind of care it's been given. He gave me the whole freshness phrase but I told him not to waste his time; what I was interested in was the beef.
Longer story short he passed that he'll give me any case I wanted for $25. Delmonico steaks - when done right - are exquisite. What he did not know is that steak is one of, if not the best food I can cook.
Tonight (5 Feb 10) when I got off work my wife had pulled 2 of the steaks for me to cook. They were sauteed in light butter over low heat until they were a nice medium rare. Here's where the whole reason for comment comes in. The first bite I had was all fat. I realized that the reason the meat was so pink in the first place was because its own blood juice was surrounding it - good trick by the way. The steak tasted like hamburger that has been processed more than dirty toilet water turned into tap water. My wife had at best about 3 "good" pieces.
It's insulting to serve my wife such a terrible piece of meat and it's also insulting that your company would try to pass this (no better word) ### off as "Prime USDA Choice Steaks". At the very least you will refund my money immediately by the end of this coming week. I also expect additional imbursement so that I can by my wife and I Delmonico steaks that I know are of good quality.
