Red Meat

Tramonto swears by the rule that any protein needs to be high quality, but the smart shopper can skimp by choosing affordable, secondary cuts of red meat. Go for a hanger steak or skirt steak instead of a rib eye. By learning how to properly pound, marinate and grill it, you won't miss the flavor of a pricey T-bone at all. "Create a relationship with the guy behind the butcher counter and ask for suggestions," recommends Tramonto. (If it's not steak night, Larsen suggests saving a bit on your protein budget by choosing a more marbled piece of meat to slow-cook to perfection in the Crock-Pot.)
