About this cut
This petite roast brings you the best of all worlds: a smaller roast, richly flavored but very lean, covered with a thin fat cap that will baste the meat as it cooks. Diners can choose to remove the fat before eating if desired! This is a great cut for making a classic deli roast beef (season as desired, roast to medium rare, then slice thinly when cold).
Basic Cooking Technique:
This cut is perfect for sous-vide: we like to cook it at 130F for 18-24 hours, then sear on a grill or grill pan to finish. Alternately, you could smoke it, roast in a low oven, or braise. Follow any Shoulder Roast recipe but note that the smaller roasts will cook more quickly.
This product is shipped frozen and will arrive frozen or refrigerated.

I really liked it. I recommend cutting it in pieces and cooking it in a stew for a long time though. It becomes more tender this way.
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:
