About this cut
This lean yet tender roast comes from the same cut as the Silver Tip Roast. Our Shoulder Roast is trimmed of all excess fat and "silver skin" and netted for your convenience.
Other names for this cut: Silver-tip Roast
Basic Cooking Technique:
Braise low and slow, or dry roast to rare. Tent with foil and let rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving. For deli-style Roast Beef, cool before slicing thin.

The meat was delicious, and cooked to fork tenderness in about 3 and a half hours in a 325 oven. I served it for the first night of Rosh Hashanah, prepared according to a recipe by Michael Twitty for West African Brisket. This roast was just right for the recipe, and more economical than brisket.
I didn't want to like it. I wanted to prove to myself that this organic thing is just a fad. But this roast is the best roast I have ever had (even counting the fraif I used to eat). The ground beef is also way superior and hardly shrinks. The ribs have so much meat that you really need to research the cooking method to cook it properly
The quality of the meat was excellent!
I prepared it according to a Jacques Pepin recipe for shoulder roast that produced a flavorful sauce. I used a Le Creuset Dutch oven and cooked it at 250 F for three hours. It was delicious. :)
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.
