Oh my god I just came back from the ethnic grocery.
- Pork liver: $1.98/lb
- Pork belly: 3.59/lb
- Oxtails: 4.59/lb
I got strawberries, bananas, an onion, some corn and apples for my bird and some hot sauce. I fully expected this to cost me $35 or $40 since that's what it would cost at Whole Foods or the equivalent (of course, they'd have no pork belly, pork liver or oxtails...). $21. I can't believe it.
Of course, none of this was organic or grass-fed, but hey, if you are on a budget, this is definitely the way to go.
They had beef and pork kidneys, pork and chicken feet, all kinds of strange and super cheap organ meats. Their soup bones had more meat on them than some ribeyes I've bought. If you can get over squeamishness for organs and odd bits I think you could eat well on the cheap shopping at little markets like this.
