About this cut
Carefully selected from our easy to braise chuck and shoulder cuts, these more affordable pieces are perfect for your chulent or a long-cooking soup or stew. This is a great choice for your crockpot AND your budget. Since this cut is lean, we recommend adding a good splash of oil to your chulent to keep the meat tender and moist, or add Marrow Bones, Flanken Ends or Beef Kishka to the pot as well.
Basic Cooking Technique:

A friend of the family has been ill and cholunt is his favorite meal. I decided to make it for him, but had never tried this dish. The Grow and Behold website had all the necessary items for this dish and really helped me narrow down what I needed to buy. He reported that it was delicious and that is the best news I could have!
I've used this cut in chulent and beef stew and there was none left!
I tried making it this time around without first braising. Baked together with chicken and vegies and came out absoutely scrumptious. Melt in the mouth soft and oh so delicious!. Please replace this review with my original as the issue was in the chef, not the product!
Packs & Weights
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packs. Most packs contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packs will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packs of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
These vacuum-sealed packs are generally packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packs you'd like in the box, you'll make that choice under "Number of Packs". Then you'll choose the total weight of the box (that is, the combined weight of all the the packs in that box).
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packs, ~1.9lbs, and the price shows as $60.78.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packs of lamb chops inside. The whole thing will weigh approximately ~1.9lbs and will cost $60.78.
Each pack will contain 2 lamb chops, and weigh approximately .95lbs.
You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. Each will weigh approximately .475lbs (note that one may be slightly larger and one slightly smaller).
Weight Ranges & Prices
To keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable, products with variable weights are sold in a weight range (this includes most frozen meats, with the exception of deli meats, sausages and beef jerky). We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. If a price/lb is shown with a *, it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with each weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the weight ranges for all our products:
|less than 0.99lb||0.05lb|
|1lb - 2.19lb||0.1lb|
|2.2lb - 2.74lb||0.30lb|
|2.75lb - 10.24lb||0.25lb|
