The best mail-order steak, period

In my 100 questions meme entry, I listed Lindey's Prime Steak House, in the Twin Cities, as my favorite restaurant. After posting that, I went to the site, and discovered they're now selling their yummy dead cow (quiet, Orvan) by mail-order. Naturally, I had to try it out.

My order arrived yesterday. It was properly frozen and in good shape. I stuck the package in the fridge to thaw. We had two of the four 8-ounce steaks for dinner tonight. I knew they'd gotten it right when I recognized the aroma coming out of my George Foreman grill: it smelled just like the steak you get at the Lindey's restaurant. Tasted just like it, too, plus or minus differences in cooking method (the restaurant uses a broiler at some amazingly high temperature, and I overdid them just a bit) and side dishes.

The steaks are an amazing value at $26.95 for two pounds of meat (in one, two, or four steaks), plus $12.95 for overnight shipping to Fairmont. I expect shipping elsewhere would be more, but haven't checked it out. For $10 apiece shipped, we got a far better steak than the typical grocery store $8 butcher shop steak. You can bet we'll be ordering more, regularly.

If you can't make it to the Twin Cities to get a Lindey's steak in person, this is the next best thing. Highly recommended.
