There are A ZILLION kinds of beef/cuts/complicated pricing structures, so I'm looking for some advice here. I don't buy a lot of meat, but would rather buy cheaper cuts of local non-factory beef when possible, so please advise with cheapness in mind.
1) I want to stir-fry beef. I am capable of cutting it into strips myself. What should I buy?
2) I have heard that you can get "tougher cuts" of beef for cheaper. I'm okay with marinating something in the fridge ahead of time or whacking it with one of those spiky hammer things. Now what do I buy?
3) Forget the stir-fry thing. Is there a super-nutritious and/or super cheap cut of beef I should learn to cook?
I miss thekatebeyond at times like these. :(
