About this cut
Second Cut Brisket is one of our most popular braising roasts: it is simply unmatched for marbling and flavor. Black Angus cattle are known for their superior taste, quality, and marbling. Our farmers have bred their herds to do well on pasture and produce tender, well-marbled meat. Our breeding, combined with our specialized diet and aging techniques, results in beef that is second to none.
Traditionally used for corned beef, this fattier section of the brisket is delicious braised on its own for a couple of hours. Fat will be trimmed. If this item is out of stock, we suggest you try our Top of the Rib, Chuck Pot Roast, Pastrami Roast, or Whole Brisket instead, or feel free to give us a call at 888-790-5781 for customized product recommendations.

This is exceptional brisket. I followed the basic outline of the recipe for Kosher Brisket (2nd cut). It was simple to do and the result was tender and delicious.
This cut of beef was amazing, so flavorful and tender. My family and I have had some great briskets over the years, but this was by far the best. I received so many rave reviews.
A dear friend gave us his old family recipe for making brisket. We've enjoyed it many times, but after moving to another state, we simply could not find a great place to buy kosher brisket. Also, while first cut brisket is plentiful here, second cut - which is by far the best cut, is quite literally unheard of. I don't exactly remember what sequence of events led me to find the Grow and Behold website, but it took me all of about 30 seconds to order a ~3.5 pound second cut brisket. The meat arrived next-day, and was on our table the day after that. It was superb and - bonus - no need to wash any knives because "cutting" the brisket only required using the side of the fork! We'll be a repeat customer as long as the exquisite quality of the brisket continues... and I can definitely see us branching out into purchasing other items as well.
I've cooked many a brisket with the same recipe for years. I made your brisket in the same manner -- it was absolutely the best ever!
wow! exceptionally flavorful, and cooked up fork-tender, as it should, with well-distributed fat.
This was utter perfection. I used the combined forces of a glorious G&B second cut brisket with the Leah Koenig recipe reposted on the blog, for Red Wine and Honey Brisket, and all expectations were exceeded! Will make this again and again!! https://blog.growandbehold.com/recipes/red-wine-and-honey-brisket/
The texture amd taste is unmatched
Wanted to smoke a brisket, but didn't have a whole day to cook and didn't have a crowd coming to eat. This small brisket had enough marbling to keep it juicy after a 6 hour smoke. Will definitely order again!
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.
