About this cut
Flavor accumulates in the fatty tissues, perhaps nowhere more so than the delectable marrow of our pastured Black Angus beef itself. The marrow can be eaten as a rich delicacy, or the bones can be added to sautéed carrots, celery and onions with water to make the most flavorful stock you'll ever find. At Grow & Behold, we bring your premium kosher meats, raised on pasture with no hormones or antibiotics. We take care every step of the way to make sure the meat is raised well, processed humanely, expertly butchered, carefully packaged, delivered seamlessly and prepared with confidence in your kitchen. Cross Cut Marrow Bones are round medallions with the marrow in the center (~1.5" long).
Basic Cooking Technique:
For roasted marrow, roast until the marrow starts to bubble at the edges. Or brown under the broiler and use for stock.
Products are packed with coolant during their journey to ensure they arrive in great shape. Meats will arrive frozen or refrigerated. Most of our products are shipped frozen; occasionally, due to a very quick turnaround between when the meats arrive at our freezing and distribution facility and when they are delivered to you, meats may be shipped fresh. Meat that is cold to the touch can be refrigerated for immediate use, or frozen for later use. Learn more.

Cut from the best part of the bone - no ends here! Other high end butchers will package one bone cut into pieces, including both ends, then charge upwards of $10 a pound! Grow and Behold delivers quality and doesn't shortchange me.
The cross cut marrow bones are excellent quality-- the best I've purchased anywhere. Gone are the days of picking up a bone, excited to dig in, and only to see a paltry amount of marrow for its size. With Grow and Behold's bones, there is always plenty of succulent marrow inside. The marrow to bone ratio is off the charts. When these bones are out of stock, it saddens me. I highly recommend them (even though I want them all for myself).
Excellwnt quality, very fresh, packaging was well done. Will order again in the future.
How Many Pieces Will I Receive?
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packages. Most packages contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packages will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packages of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
For red meat items and multi-pack poultry items, vacuum-sealed packages may be packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packages you'd like in the box, you'll make that selection under "Customize Your Order." Then you'll choose your preferred weight (that is, the combined weight of all the the packages in that box.) If only one choice is showing in a green box, you do not need to make any selection.
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packages, ~1.1 lb, and the price shows $39.99.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packages of lamb chops inside.
Each package will contain 2 lamb chops. You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. We always try to pack similar-sized items, but you may find that some chops are slightly larger and some are slightly smaller.
How Much Does It Weigh?
We use weight ranges in order to keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable for items with variable weights (for example steaks. Packages of deli meats which are not sold by weight range as we can pack them by exact weight). The ranges are as small as practically possible to minimize the variation between the Selected Weight and the actual weght you receive. Because of this, if the price per pound is shown as "price/lb*", the *" indicates that it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with the selected weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the potential weight variance for selected weights on our site:
|Selected Weight||Potential Weight Variance|
|under ~0.95 lb||+/- 0.15 lb|
|~1 lb to ~3.9 lb||+/- 0.25 lb|
|~4 lb to ~10 lb||+/- 0.5 lb||over ~10 lb||+/- 1 lb|
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~1.5 lb could weigh as much as 1.75 lb or as little as 1.25 lb
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~5 lb could weigh as much as 5.5 lb or as little as 4.5 lb
We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. Sometimes you will receive a bit more than the listed weight, and sometimes a bit less. Our customers find that on average they receive what they are expecting. But if you find that your actual weights in an order are all below the listed average, please snap a picture of the weight labels and send it over to us, and we'll be happy to make things right.
