What is with the recent trend of posts mislabeling steaks?

New home cooks

New home cook means you can't read what meat you're buying??

They said they bought it from a guy on the street and the guy said it's fillet mignon.

I'm going to make a reenactment of the dialogue:

Client: is this fillet mignon?

Seller: Umm..yea, sure. Why not!

When we say from a guy on a street I envision a street vendor like in ny hawking knock off name brand bags 😂

Guys used to steal meat from the packing plant where they worked and sell it in bar parking lots at night. They probably still do, but it was a thing when I was young.

Street meat guy sounds shady at best

When I worked in retail the shoplifters would go straight to the meat grab armfuls of steaks into a bag and run.

I assume they were selling them, not eating them.

I'm not a new cook and would have no idea, lol. I just generally don't buy beef to cook at home unless it's ground and usually the only beef I get at restaurants is hamburger or carpaccio, lol

Yeah but when you go to a butcher case the cuts are labeled lol.

Forgot about label or tik tok effect in terms of getting something out.
