The Best Grocery Store For Reliable Tuna Steaks On A Budget
By KATIE HORST
There are 15 types of tuna commonly eaten in the U.S., and ahi tuna steak is an especially prized variety. These steaks have vibrant pink or red flesh and a mildly sweet flavor, and can be enjoyed sushi-style or seared like a beef steak; if this sounds exciting, you may wonder where you should buy tuna steaks to prepare at home.
Grocery store Aldi sells frozen, individually-wrapped ahi tuna steaks at a surprisingly affordable price. Their steaks contain no synthetic colors, added MSG, or partially hydrogenated oils; tuna steaks also freeze well with no detectable decline in quality, not to mention freezing makes them last much longer than one or two days for fresh steaks.
Aldi usually sells its tuna steaks in packs of 3 for 12 oz. total, and if you're not satisfied with the product, they will replace it and give you a refund. If you choose to buy a fresh steak instead, search for fish that is Marine Stewardship Council (MSC)-certified, doesn't look slimy, has a uniform color, and is labeled sushi-grade and wild-caught.
