    That said-Best places to get your own steak here in OC are Irvine/Tustin Ranch Markets. Pricey but well worth it. One of the best steaks I ever had was one bought there with salt and pepper and cooked on a 19.95 hibachi. If you are in Huntington Beach go to the Beef Palace.
    I think I am going to the beef palace on the way home for filet kabobs.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    Supermarket Filet Mignon $19.99 per pound
    Tasters found this USDA Choice steak to have a clean, “beefy-chew” that was “more meaty than mushy”—tasters’ biggest complaint with lesser steaks. “Buttery” flavor won tasters over.

    RECOMMENDED

    Lobel’s Filet Mignon $65.67 per pound, including shipping
    While a few tasters thought this “good-n-beefy” steak “melts in your mouth,” most thought it was a little “too tender.”

    Williams-Sonoma Dakota Organic Filets $54.26 per pound, including shipping
    Anything but mushy, these “hearty” steaks have a forward beefiness and a texture you can “sink your teeth into.”

    NOT RECOMMENDED

    Omaha Steaks Private Reserve Filet Mignons $44.00 per pound, including shipping
    These frozen steaks cross the point where “tender” meets “mushy.” Flavor is mild, but soft texture trumps any positives. Fork-tender steak? No thanks.


    Allen Brothers Choice Filets $53.57 per pound, including shipping
    An OK steak texture-wise; downgraded for tasting “like nothing.”

    Allen Brothers Prime Filets $65.48 per pound, including shipping
    One taster deemed this steak “cafeteria beef.” Most didn’t go that far, merely calling it “livery,” “mineral-y,” and “mealy.”

    Dean & Deluca Prime Filet $68.29 per pound, including shipping
    Tasters called these steaks “wet” (as in watery) rather than “juicy” (as in moist and beefy). Sponge-like texture didn’t win over any tasters.

    Omaha Steaks Filet Mignons $30.85 per pound, including shipping
    Dry ice is no friend of filet mignon. These steaks were so mushy one taster compared them to “mashed potatoes.”
