About this cut
With a good mix of meat, fat and bone, these ends from our Flanken ribs will add incredible flavor to your chulent. Not as meaty as our regular flanken, but with the extra fat that makes that braise succulent as can be.
Basic Cooking Technique:
Add to soups, stews and chulent
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.

Soup made by browning and braising these was fantastically flavorful. Also extremely fatty -- took a lot of skimming -- and was improved by taking the time to remove the many bones and gristly chunks. I think cholent, where all that fat can be absorbed by the starches, is probably the highest and best use of these.
These were amazing in an improv stew with sweet potatoes, barley, tomato paste, lemon, and lime. I'll definitely be ordering the flanken ends again!
One package is too large for a cholent in our small household. My work around is to defrost and cook (seasoning and braising) one package, then divide and refreeze smaller units. This has worked well. Of course if you have a big crowd you will enjoy all of it at once.
Incredible in chulent. Occasionally the cut has a few very small bone segments included at the bottom of the flank that you have to be careful with, but other than that it's just an incredibly flavorful cut for a good value.
These are terrific! A lot of flavor for the buck. I just made a delicious borscht with them, and they were good for cholent, too.
I appreciate the special pricing! Perfect with marinade and broiled! Didn't need to cook long and slowly, but I bet these will be yummy if I do.
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.
