The Ralph’s near me stocked up on whole rib beef roasts which evidently didn’t sell well because they’re still there but now ‘seasoned’ to camouflage the change in color.
Who is going to buy that, on a Tuesday no less?

If Ralphs still had that hot carved meat program in the deli, they could have just transferred some of it there and cooked it up to sell as sandwiches. Oh well. Probably took more labor to cook it in the deli and cut it than they would make on the sandwiches.
