Horrible! Product of Australia and Mexico- not USA.
I just ate one – disgusting!!
Read the labels before trusting the Trader Joe name! $9.99 /lb for horse meat. This is not steak! Tastes sour.

So gross! We thought it was pork because of the color and quality! I will never buy met from Trader Joe’s again. Waste of money!

I agree that this is definitely not beef. The meat cooked like pork, but tasted like neither pork nor beef. Traders Joes may want to review their meat suppliers more closely. Yikes!

I’ve never left a review before but I’m sitting here with half of the New York steak and wondering what kind of meat this is? It definitely does not cut or taste like a New York steak that I know and I’ve been around a long time. Trader Joe’s – please address the quality of your meat. It looked beautiful in the package but did not taste good!

The vacuum packed New York strip steak, processed in Australia and Mexico was very poor in quality. The color was odd inside like that of pork. It was very tough and hard to cut and mostly hard gristle. There was no taste. I don’t believe it was a “steak”. I dumped the rest in the trash. I’m very disappointed. I haven’t had red meat in over a year. I’m a Trader Joe’s fan and raised my children on this food. I continue to shop at this store but will never buy any kind of meat there again unless there’s a significant change.

No shot this is from a cow. Cooked the same cut of steak a million times from other places, thought I’d get it at TJ’s and save a trip. Everything about the process was the same but the steak came out looking like pork. No marbling, super strange color, didn’t taste like pork or beef tho! Tasted like it was 3D printed lmao. Definitely grossed me out, still ate it but would not recommend at all.

But everyone else it came out like pork! Super weird! Didn’t taste like beef either. Dumped it all in the trash.
My last review had a typo! Everyone else said it came out like pork and I agree! Super weird. Definitely not beef nor pork!

Just tried to cook this ‘steak’ – gross! It has this odd pink color on the outside, but cooks grey on the inside. This is not beef! After looking at the label and realizing this is either from Mexico or Australia, I highly suspect that this is horse meat (as horse slaughter is legal in those countries). So beyond disturbing and I’m going to contact th FDA and USDA (and will be freezing the evidence)! As a horse rescuer, I cannot even say how disgusted and appalled I am. Everyone needs to do the same with this meat and Trader Joe’s needs to be exposed.

My entire family was like what is this? We eat a lot of steak and tried these Trader Joe’s strips and everyone hated them. What a huge waste of money since they ended up in the trash after a few bites. Is it the nationality or as some have suggested not even beef?

Both my boyfriend and I woke up extremely sick the morning after eating these NY strip steaks. We consume A LOT of red meat, and these looked different than any normal steak. Weird light pink color and turned grey after grilling. Disgusting.

What on earth was this!? I’m just repeating what everyone else said, but there is no way this is beef.
What on earth was this!? I’m just repeating what everyone else said, but there is no way this is beef. After my typical new york strip cooking method, it came out looking like a lightly seared tuna, super pink middle and white/greyish outside.
