Online healthy food retailer MuscleFood.com sell wonky rump and sirloin steaks that are sent back from restaurants due to certain imperfections for as little as £1 a steak.
Is there anything better than a perfectly cooked steak dinner? Maybe you like yours with a simple side salad or a stack of salty French fries?
It’s a popular choice when you’re eating out but it can often come at a high cost. And, even when you’re cooking steak at home it’s hard to know whether you should fork out a little more and buy a more expensive steak in and effort to match restaurant quality.
We’ve heard lots about wonky fruit and vegetable boxes but now you can buy a wonky, or imperfect steak at a reduced price too!
These cuts of rump and sirloin steak come from the same cows that are reared for restaurants but they are rejected due to inconsistencies in shape and size.
MuscleFood.com sell the steaks on packs of 10, 20 or 30 and they weigh between 100g and 184g each.
A 30 pack of rump steaks costs £30 making it just £1 a steak but even the packs of 10 work out at £1.25 each as it is £12.50 in total.
The sirloin steak packs are marginally higher in price but they are still an absolute bargain if you’re looking for quality steaks at discounted prices.
The steaks are free-range, grass-fed and according to MuscleFood they are the same quality as steaks served up in restaurants.
MuscleFood sell the steaks in these small portions to give you more control over how much you cook and in an effort to reduce food waste.
The steak would ordinarily be turned into mincemeat but MuscleFood buy it before this happens so you can snap up a bargain.
Speaking to MailOnline about the wonky steaks, Darren Beale, founder of MuscleFood.com, said: ‘It’s a shame that certain steak cuts end up being mincemeat just because they don’t fit the strict weight and size dimensions that restaurants want.
‘We hate seeing a good steak go to waste, so we decided to launch the UK’s first wonky steak range – offering unconventionally shaped, great quality, steaks at budget prices.’
