Morrisons Is Selling Two Ribeye Steaks And Chips For £5
There's little better than a massive plate of steak and chips when the weekend rolls around, when you can simply fire up the grill or frying pan and let the meat do its magic while you open up a bottle of red.
While steak isn't known as the cheapest ingredient to splurge on at the best of times, this week Morrisons is letting the dream come true for a slashed price - offering two succulent ribeye steaks and chips for just a fiver.
Simply snap up two succulent ribeyes for £5, and the supermarket is throwing in a 1.2kg bag of Morrisons Steak Cut Chips for free, meaning you've got yourself a meal for two ready to go.
You could maybe also pimp things up a bit with a nice salad, some peppercorn sauce or even a few onion rings, but that bit's down to you - at least you've been set up with the two essentials for a good cost.
The only downside is that you'll need to act quick, as the offer - which excludes online purchases - ends on Sunday 1 March.
Josh Brockbank, Morrisons' Steak Buying Manager, said: "We're really proud of our steaks, so what better way to spend the weekend than with a slap-up Rib Eye and Chips supper - all for a fiver!"
If you're not a meat eater, this deal probably isn't the one for you - though that's not to say you have to miss out on steak and chips, as there are now various meat-free alternatives readily available.
TGI Fridays, for starters, recently launched a new vegan steak made out of... watermelon, of all things.

While it was just a special addition to the menu for Veganuary, if you really wanted to I imagine you could take it as inspiration to recreate at home.
TGI's watermelon 'steak' was marinated in garlic and chilli and chargrilled, before being served with crispy fries, roasted vegetables and TGI's 'Legendary Glaze' - you might have to get a bit creative with that bit.
Terry McDowell, head development chef at TGI Fridays, told The Mirror: "We're really excited about the new vegan steak because it's unique to us here at TGI Fridays.
"We have taken a watermelon and made it into a main course. Most people think of watermelon as a sweet dish, but we have flipped that on its head. It is full of flavour and perfect for Veganuary and those who want to try something different."
