Last month I saw an internet coupon for Omaha Steaks and decided to give it a try. I'd eaten Omaha Steaks before at my Grandmom's house; she raves about them. For $70, I got 2 bacon-wrapped filet mignons, 8 ground beef burgers, 6 top sirloins and 4 double-stuffed baked potatoes.
I didn't price out each item to see how it matches with grocery store prices, but it didn't seem like a great bang for my buck. I typically only buy steak when it is on sale and I cut small portions to get a lot of meals out of it. The sirloins are nice, but they are larger than I would serve normally and too small for two people to share. I had a hard time cooking the bacon-wrapped filet mignons. I seared the outside and popped the steaks in the oven, but the bacon still seemed undercooked. Also, as a personal preference, I think bacon hides the steak flavor.
I have to tell you, though, the potatoes are awesome and I love the vacuum-packed packages. We haven't eaten the hamburgers yet, but I appreciate not having to handle raw ground beef (ew).
So what is my final review? I would buy them again if I had an internet coupon, and I certainly would not turn down a gift. However, I am not sure the value is there for frequent orders.
Have you ordered Omaha Steaks? What was your opinion?
