I was inspired to cook something for my friends birthday, but I was low on funds. So I did what any rational human being would do…. I started searching the web. I decided to recreate a surf and turf meal that wouldn’t break the bank.
Here’s what I bought:
Fresh Shrimp (approx. 25 shrimps): $6.83
USDA Beef Top Lion NY Strip Steak (Bone in): $7.55
2 lobster tails (Previously Frozen): $13.98
Chopped Garlic: (optional) $2.99
Here’s what I had in my fridge
Brussel spouts: $3.49/lb
Spring mix: $2.49
Bag of Potatoes: $2.99
I’m sure I could have gotten these ingredients cheaper, but I ended up spending less than $40.00 for about 4 servings or 2 servings if your really hungry.
