(Reprint from L.A. Times™)
What is the cost of the beef you eat? Most shoppers think it's the cost per pound but they are wrong, according the the U.S Department of Agriculture. The keyword here is eat. The real Cost of the Beef its cost per serving. The fat and bone that you trim off before cooking
or leave on your plate is the part of the total beef cost, but the best indicator of eating value is cost per edible portion.
