As a group, we should be able to make some concrete recommendations, or we should advise drybagsteak.com – “Nobody knows how to practically use this size of bag. Go ahead and include it in the Starter Kit as a throwaway for learning the technique(*), but consider dropping it.”
We go to the supermarket, or local butcher. What do we buy for the dinner party bag? A 3-4 lb ribeye roast, to be aged into ribeye steaks? A sirloin tip roast?? (I don’t think that even translates well into steaks).
(*) — The starter kit includes four “dinner party” bags. Inexpensive and, relatively speaking, so is the meat that goes in it. I’d encourage, welcome, and support a video that starts with four such bags, an appropriate-sized roast, and a video that shows – “Look! This is what went wrong, and why. Air got trapped _here_ and this is why, and this is how to prevent it.”
Darn the luck, this mini-bag was sacrificed to education. But you won’t make this mistake with your $150 (USD) prime strip loin, so it’s money well spent.
