IF you’re a fan of posh meat then you might want to head down to Lidl.
The budget supermarket just released a 21 days matured, dry-aged British beef côte de boeuf – and it’s £15 cheaper than at Waitrose.

The massive joint of beef, is to go on sale today at £14.99 a kg at Lidl.
A similar cut would set you back £29.99 a kg at Waitrose or nearly double the cost.
It also sells for £82.50 per kg at trendy London steak restaurant Hawksmoor – and that’s before adding the chips.
It is worth noting that the côte de boeuf from Waitrose is a 30 day dry-aged steak, so it might have a superior flavour to the cut from the budget supermarket.
Meanwhile, Hawksmoor restaurant is known to serve one of the best steaks in London, so we’ll be surprised if your beef from Lidl prepared at home tastes as good.
But, if you’re looking for a budget alternative then it is worth checking out Lidl’s offer.
Côte de bœuf is basically a massive rib-eye steak that includes the rib bone.
A single côte de bœuf is often served as a meal for two and is a meaty treat for beef lovers.
Shoppers will have to be quick to take advantage of the offer however, as stock is likely to be limited.
Lidl’s offer comes just a week after rival Aldi brought back it’s huge 16oz rump steak following a sell-out success.
Both budget stores have recently been given the stamp of approval by posh lifestyle magazine Tatler.
Meat from both budget supermarket chains have made the list, with Aldi’s Specially Selected 30-day aged fillet steak costing just over a fiver.
Morrisons is also known for its generous offers for meat lovers.
Marks and Spencer recently launched boxes that come with up to eight different types of meat in a money-saving move for its customers.
