About this cut
This value cut is well marbled and should be cooked low and slow. This is the perfect chuck cut for pot roast.
Basic Cooking Technique:
Braise low and slow.
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.

This has become our favorite Shabbas meal. I can vary the recipe, what I add and it’s always delicious. I cover with a good red wine after braising and adding onions and garlic. Beer works too!
This chuck roast was delicious. I cooked it for 10 hours as recommended by your recipe. It was moist and tender and I will definitely order this again. Oh yes and I embellished on the recipe; I rubbed the roast with Dijon mustard and I added a few thin slices of ginger and more onion. Halfway through the cooking I added potatoes and carrots to the crockpot.
This is now the 5th holiday in a row I picked the cheaper cut to the more expensive brisket, and I keep getting praises for my brisket.
Made this for first night seder instead of brisket for a change. Even the red-meat shy guests loved it. Made it with shmaltz mashed potatoes and cooked it like this https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1650-italian-pot-roast-stracotto and it came out so flavorful, tender, and lovely. Will buy again!
This is one of my favorite cuts. It works with any brisket type recipe. I’ve used it for pulled beef and for sliced roast recipes. It always turns out soft and juicy.
The quality of this meat wasn't good. Too many inedible pieces. Not worth the purchase, I would recommend something else. Note from Grow & Behold: Thanks for the review, Oscar. The Chuck Pot Roast is definitely a marbled cut -- it's part of what makes it so flavorful, but we're sorry it wasn't your favorite!
Very moist, sliced thin. A little fatty but easily removed. Prepared as I would have brisket.
I will order it again
Amazing roast--perfect size and tender as a dream!
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||+/- 0.05 lb|
|~1 lb to ~2.1 lb||+/- 0.1 lb|
|~2.2 lb to ~2.7 lb||+/- 0.3 lb|
|~2.9 lb to ~10 lb||+/- 0.25 lb|
|~10.5 lb to ~19.5 lb||+/- 0.5 lb|
|over ~20 lb||+/- 1 lb|
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~1.5 lb could weigh as much as 1.6 lb or as little as 1.4 lb
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~3 lb could weigh as much as 3.25 lb or as little as 2.75 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.
