Is there a meat market where can I buy a good skirt steak? I’m making a Latin dish for the missus. Also, what do you consider to be the best meat market in Dallas?
Used to be a time when only mom-and-pop markets like Rudolph’s in Deep Ellum or David’s Meat Market in Garland were the only reliable places for butchering meat to order. Now we have Central Market and Whole Foods plus a couple of indy butchers—the last time I chased a great skirt steak was at La Michoacana. Delish and inexpensive.
BTW, I have a bone to pick with butchers. I should say, I don’t find enough bones to pick up at butchers. Anyone else remember the good old days when you could go into any grocery store and get a bag of dog bones for almost nothing? Now the only bones I can find for my hounds are in the frozen section at Whole Foods. Yesterday I paid $8.79 for a package of beef marrow bones. Sure they’re excellent for making sauces and stocks, but pricey for my precious pooches. Oh, I take that back. Discuss.
