Good morning folks, I used to sell steamship rounds by multiple cases each week for catering and banquet operations, Now I we dont even stock them anymore. Has this product just been replaced by Inside Rounds and Goosenecks? Has the steamship gone the way obsolete? It sure made for a nice presentation at carving stations.

Ah -your showing your age Sid--Without a doubt Steamships provide an impressive presentation.
They have a few draw backs: HEAVY and awkward (not a great combination especially when hot and slippery once cooked). COST about the same per pound as a inside round (last i looked) but that cost doubles due to very poor yield. From a supplier stand point the major meat processors have tried to get away from paying to ship bones around the country ~ when was the last time you saw a 109 rib?

We still stock steamships, not a lot, but we do some cruise lines who like those. Also 109’s have changed to Export ribs. The exports are cleaner on the ribs and they cut the fat cap better. Also like we used sell more 1x1 strips and we still have 1x1’s but 0x1’s are preferred. Times always change, soon everyone will be online and we won’t be in sales jobs. Lol
