Heard about Creekstone and made my first purchase. I’m a striploin person and love cutting my own steaks. The striploin arrived and was just thawed enough to cut steaks. Grilled steaks that night. Wonderful flavor and texture but meat needs a little more aging.
I have ordered from Creekstone Farms on multiple occasions. I have never been disappointed! This is the second time I have ordered a whole strip loin. This one was Choice grade, a little less marbling than the prime grade that I ordered before but still delicious. When I received the whole strip loin, I cut it down into some steaks and 2 small roasts. I grilled some of the steaks the other day and they had great flavor. I always look forward to when Creekstone Farms has product specials!
I received the roast frozen so I could not slice it into steaks as I wanted to. The roast was also smaller and with more fat. I have ordered many times and it seems the last few had way to much fat and they seem to get smaller each time I order. I feel that the steaks will be dry as I had to let roast thaw to cut and refreeze.
Thank you for your recent order. This particular strip loin special did ship frozen rather than fresh like some of our other full loins as you noted. We normally recommend you partially thaw the primal to cut into steaks as the primal will hold shape and actually be easier to cut if slightly frozen than fully fresh. Once you cut the steaks, you can repackage and freeze without any quality concerns for future use. If you have any questions or concerns though, feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and our team can help.
thought that the (2) NY Strip roasts i purchased were PRIME. In fact they were CHOICE. However they look good from a marbling perspective. I order 2 roasts. One was super small meaning when i cut individual slices it will come out in cube strips. The other roast seemed to be ok size wise so when i cut into steaks they will look half normal. To be perfectly honest, this is my 5th or 6th time ordering these roasts and every time there is a bit more and more to be desired. I might not purchase again due to price of CHOICE and the inconsistency in roast.
We are sorry to hear about your smaller item you received. If you ever have any issues, please email our team at email@example.com and we can follow up accordingly.
This is second (or is it the third time?) I have ordered this whole strip loin when it has gone on sale. It isn’t cheap but it is definitely tasty and beautiful.
