The Real Deal: How to cut the cost when buying steak

Ribeye, filet mignon, skirt steak are expensive cuts that will cost you at least $9.99 per pound, but what if you can buy a cow and pay less per pound? That is, if you are willing to buy the cow.
News 12's consumer reporter Janice Lieberman has The Real Deal on how you can save.
Ashley Iannotta says she splits a whole cow with another family, they each pay $2,500, and once the cow is slaughtered it yields about 700 pounds. Each family takes home 350 pounds, which will last the whole year. Instead of paying almost $10 a pound, she gets it for $7.50 a pound.

Freedom Farms is a cattle, pork and chicken farm in Upstate New York owned by former Long Island residents Dana and Lauren Cavailier.
Customers choose their preferred cuts of meat, and after the meat is butchered it’s delivered right to their door step.
The family Lieberman spoke with, uses a second freezer for storage. If you are interested in purchasing a large amount of meat, see if the farm offers samples of cuts to try before making the investment.
