About this cut
These flavorful pieces are cut from well-marbled sections of the chuck, and can be prepared the same way as any short rib recipe. They'll do nicely when seared to build flavor and then braised until tender. You can cut the pieces down to individual portion size before, or after, cooking, if you don't want to serve as strips. Meat will shrink to approximately 2/3 size of the raw pieces as they cook.
Basic Cooking Technique:
Sear, then braise low and slow.

I decided to try this newly available cut for one of my Pesach meals. I cooked it sous vide for 24 hours or so at 134 (would have left it longer, but meals plans changed and needed it earlier), and finished it with a generous sprinkling of sea salt and seared on a very hot grill. The meat was delicious and a real hit around the table. It was very tender and flavorful and enjoyed by those who prefer both more rare and more done beef. It is not as rich/heavy as actual short rib meat, so it worked better into a large meal. And the few leftover slices were excellent when reheated a couple of days later. I'll definitely get these again.
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|
|1lb - 2.19lb||0.1lb|
|2.2lb - 2.74lb||0.30lb|
