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.

We were very excited about this roast. We got it with a fat cap and cooked it rare as we like and as you suggest. It was so chewy and tasted like dirt in various places. A few bites tasted okay, but the dirt taste was overwhelming. Thank goodness it wasn’t the first item we purchased. We wouldn’t have stayed customers. I don’t recommend this roast. I would like to try a rib roast, but I’m scared. Note from Grow & Behold: This does not sound like one of our typical shoulder roasts. We'll reach out to you directly to take care of this for you!
The roast wasn’t very well trimmed. It was half fat. And the meat wasn’t marbled. It was tough. Note from Grow & Behold: Thanks for the review, Gene! You purchased the shoulder roast with fat cap, so it was not a trimmed roast but we're sorry you didn't enjoy. Also worth noting, we don't recommend cooking at medium as you did, we highly recommend this roast be cooked to rare!
Tender and delicious even tho I let it cook a bit long while at Shul. Everyone loved it
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. :)
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.
