The city’s beef slicer is disappearing in Philadelphia, a new study finds.
The citywide butchering program, started in the 1990s, is down 40 percent from what it was before the cuts disappeared, according to a study released Thursday.
“The cuts are being pulled out of the market because there’s no other option,” said the study’s lead author, Matt Jones, a research fellow at the University of California, Berkeley.
“The cuts have been cut to extinction.
And if you take away the cuts from the market, it will make it more expensive for consumers.”
The cuts were once a mainstay of the local beef market.
Before that, local vendors sold brisket, steaks, ribs, pork chops and sausage, which were often accompanied by a variety of sauces, meats, and cheeses.
But the cuts were mostly replaced by the cuts sold in meat markets across the country, which typically had higher quality and a smaller markup.
The cut’s disappearance was also accompanied by higher prices for the meats, which are typically priced higher in restaurants than they are in supermarkets.
For example, the prices of beef jerky, a traditional Pennsylvania delicacy, have increased nearly 50 percent since the cuts went away.
The study was conducted by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture and Conservation, which has been investigating the cuts’ disappearance for years.
The department is also looking at ways to address the cuts, such as providing incentives to businesses to bring the cuts back to the market.
“We’re not the only ones that have lost this iconic cut,” Jones said.
“There are others that have come up with innovative solutions.
So we’re trying to figure out what they’re doing to get the cuts in the market.”
For now, the cuts are still available for sale at restaurants and butcher shops in the city, but only at a limited number of locations, according the study.
The cuts are sold at several different restaurants across the city.
In the past, they have been sold at the Philadelphia Farmers Market, but now, it is only at the city’s butcher shop.
There are currently five meat slicers in operation in Philadelphia.
They are owned by local businesses and have been serving local customers for more than 30 years.
But there is no plan to replace them, the study found.
The meat slicer was also once a local specialty at the grocery store where Jones works.
When the cuts go, it won’t be because of anything the city has done to address them, Jones said, but because they are gone.
“This is something that is just disappearing,” Jones added.
“It’s been a part of our life for more or less 30 years, and now, we’re just losing it.”
The study, “The Meat Slicer Is Gone in Philadelphia,” was published in the journal PLOS One.
