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.

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.
This is the best brisket I have made. Perfectly tender and juicy. I will definitely order this again.
The best and most tender meat I and my family have ever experienced. I was in Utah for Rosh Hashana and it was delivered packed in ice,vacuum sealed, delivered thursday, cooked on Sunday. Fantastic!
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|
