About this cut
First Cut Brisket is THE roast of choice for many of our customers holiday and shabbat tables. It's lean, but very flavorful, and when braised gently (keep the lid on tight) you'll find it moist and tender, never dry. If you think you don't like first cut brisket, you haven't tried a Grow & Behold kosher first cut brisket!
Our Black Angus cattle are bred for tenderness and raised in the US on pasture with no hormones or antibiotics. We are proud to partner with family farms and processing plants who take pride in producing premium quality meats, every step of the way. We carefully wet-age our beef on a precise and proprietary aging cycle, before it is vacuum sealed and flash frozen at peak quality. With a tight seal, you can enjoy this meat from your freezer for up to 2 years with no loss of quality.
Brisket is trimmed to perfection BEFORE it is weighed.

I was surprised when the brisket arrived at how it looked just like the picture on the website. When I cooked it, my husband could not stop eating and praising how delicious it was. We will definitely order this again.
Best brisket ever
Absolutely beautiful, tender, and juicy meat! I used a dry rub of Hungarian spices and marinated the brisket overnight. Then, placed the meat on top of braised onions and garlic in a Dutch oven topped with homemade sauce consisting of Silan, white wine, fresh squeezed orange juice, and tomato paste. Slow cooked at 300 degrees F for 3 1/2 hours. Superb!
This first cut was a bit too thin and so cutting became problematic. There was absolutely no fat on the meat which meant it has less flavor. I would stick to second cut if you can get it!
Absolutely amazing brisket! So tender and lean...everyone raved about it! Thank you for helping me make Chanukah so special!
Everyone loved these tender and delicious briskets.
No fat and tender with no trace of gristle either this is top quality tasty beef fit for a holiday feast
Loved by everyone, even the 3 year old post stomach virus who was afraid food would hurt her tummy. She loved it and asked if she can take the left overs home. It doesn't get better than that!
Found myself picking the little burnt bits out of the pan because there was not even a tiny bit left.
Packs & Weights
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 "Number of Packages". Then you'll choose the total weight of the box (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 packs, ~1.1lbs, and the price shows as $39.99.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packages of lamb chops inside. The whole thing will weigh approximately ~1.1lbs and will cost $39.99.
Each package will contain 2 lamb chops, and weigh approximately .65lbs.
You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. Each will weigh approximately .35lbs (note that some may be slightly larger and some 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|
