With holiday shopping and decorating for Christmas eating into PieHole‘s precious cooking time, we’re ready for some easy crockpot meals.
This week’s PieHole Larder – yes, this is the first you’re hearing about our new feature about unbeatable food bargains – brings you a pair of specials that go together like meat and potatoes.
Because, well, they are meat and potatoes.
Go slow and low in the crockpot with a full cut beef brisket from Monmouth Meats at $3.69 per pound, or the smaller, leaner first-cut brisket for $4.99 a pound (usually $5.99 and $6.99, respectively). Tell Stew you heard about the deal on PieHole.
Then, pick up a 5-pound bag of Russet potatoes at the Red Bank Foodtown for $1.49 – about half the regular price – through Thursday.
