Grass-fed, free-range, Australian boneless rib-eye roast is on sale for $4.99 a pound with a ShopRite Price Plus Club Card. The sale started today and runs through Friday, the day before Christmas.
The roasts, which weigh 3 to 4 pounds, are a departure from the larger whole beef tenderloin for filet mignon from Australia that ShopRite sells under the same Nature's Reserve label.
Two conventionally raised rib roasts are on sale for $6.99 a pound (Certified Angus Beef) and $4.99 a pound (USDA Choice). This is one time when the best beef is the best buy.
ShopRite also has 5 pounds of clementines from Morocco on sale for $4.99 (limit 1), and 1-liter bottles of 100% sparkling red-grape and white-grape juice from Spain for $1.99 each. "Imported sweet cherries" are $2.99 a pound.
Not made in China
On the way to the checkout counter today at ShopRite in Hackensack, I saw Star Ware-brand plastic food storage containers, on sale at two for 77 cents. At home, I looked to see where they were made and was surprised that this is one product not made in China.
The containers are made in Afula, Israel, where I once saw a falafel stand frying chickpea balls by loading them into the top bin of a miniature Ferris wheel, which would turn slowly and pass them through hot oil to cook them.
