WFMW (free steak seasonings/marinades)

It's time to post yet another WFMW tip. Before I do so, please check out the details on my upcoming Favorite Ingredients Friday- Freezer Edition. I need some tried and true freezer recipes so I hope you'll join me this Friday!

Now, not long ago, I went shopping at the local Safeway that's just a few blocks from my house. I was in search of a good steak and I stopped at the meat department and asked for assistance picking something out. The butcher working that day helped me pick out a steak and then offered me some free steak seasonings (wrapped the spices in a plastic bag) with instructions on how to rub them into my steaks before grilling. He told me that I could get free seasonings and marinades from the meat department anytime I requested it.

I'm not sure if all meat departments offer this, but I at least know that Safeway does.

Free steak seasonings and marinades work for me, maybe they'll work for you. To see what works for others, be sure to check out the other links at Shannon's, the creator of Works-For-Me Wednesday!
