Not sure why a steak company also sells fish, but the Stuffed Sole was pretty good.
The meatballs didn't fall apart (something that happens every time I try to make them), so that was good. They also tasted great.
The brats were delicious as well.

I like my steaks with just salt and pepper, although the Omaha Steak Seasoning that came in the box was pretty good as well. Wayne still added A-1 Sauce!
There were also a couple of side dishes included in the package. We tried the "Au Gratin Potatoes" with some broiled lobster tails and lamb chops one Sunday.
And the "Apple Caramel Tartlets" as dessert for another Sunday dinner. They're fine plain, but they're even better with a slice of melted sharp cheddar cheese or a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
Bottom line? Although we thoroughly enjoyed this culinary experiment, and also enjoyed making it last over several months, we prefer Costco steaks. Maybe they're a higher grade of meat, maybe not, but they seemed to be a bit more tender and flavorful. Feel free to experiment yourself some day and let us know the results!
Note: Here are the current prices (per pound) for beef at our local Costco, just so I can remember them for the future. But mainly so I can remember that "prime" is better than "choice"!
filet mignon (choice) $13
top sirloin (choice) $7
top sirloin (prime) $8
New York steak (choice) $7
flank steak (choice) $7
top round steak (choice) $4
