  • Why is deli meat so expensive ?

    It's like for a pound of roast beef it costs you almost as much as a 16oz ribeye or something. What's up with that ?

    you think roast beef is expensive??  try some really good kosher corned beef.  pretty close to $12 per pound

      That's what I paid for the last pound of Roast beef I got at safeway. I think it was like 12.47 or something.

      It takes a lot of robots to mash a bunch of leftover meat into a salty pile, wrap it in synthetic gut, twine it, and drive it to your local store from Nebraska. Add refrigeration costs, labor for the butcher who slices it, paper, & all the bribes to the FDA so they overlook the hormones & you can see why it costs more than your average slab of roadkill doxied up as "prime rib".

      This video pretty much explains it all:

        The price of gas has a lot to do with it.
