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.

Flanken by Grow & Behold
Absolute delicacy. No other words to describe Grow & Behold's Flanken. This is probably our favorite piece of their entire collection of Beef. Suggestion: Cut and sauté 4 leaks + 2 onions in medium pieces in a pan first, add garlic - be generous, once soft (but not caramelized) add it to a large pot with 2 scoops of tomato paste and 1 cup of beef stock. Put 3-4 racks of Flanken (cut into 4 cubs ea.) into the pot and cook everything sealed on medium (~275 F) for 2-2.5 hours. Serve and behold. As a side note, we can't say enough about G&B's quality of product and service. They are a beacon of light and we are forever fans.
flanken for passover
a specialty item at our sedar that shined bright! - fell off the bone in moist tender morsels of heaven - tx
Meat is salty and rough, not what I was expecting.
Wow, the flanken was excellent. It was tender and so full of flavor. The cholent was the best I have ever made thanks to this flanken.
Best for chulent
The meat itself is great. Moist and flavorful . However, there are sections that are overly salted. Interestingly I had the same complaint about chicken.
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||+/- 0.15 lb|
|~1 lb to ~3.9 lb||+/- 0.25 lb|
|~4 lb to ~10 lb||+/- 0.5 lb||over ~10 lb||+/- 1 lb|
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~1.5 lb could weigh as much as 1.75 lb or as little as 1.25 lb
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~5 lb could weigh as much as 5.5 lb or as little as 4.5 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.
