About this cut
This roast is very similar to brisket in texture and cooking method and smaller than a whole brisket. More marbled than a first cut brisket, but leaner than second cut and a slightly beefier flavor. Pictures show the different butchering options: Trimmed has no layer of fat; Fat Cap has a 1/4" layer of fat on top.
Basic Cooking Technique:
Braise low and slow

Our go-to pot roast. This top of the rib is delicious, slices elegantly, braises easily in the oven to a much more tender texture than any brisket ever. Easy to cut in sections that you can layer in a baking pan to oven-braise. We dropped one third off with the quarantined grandparents, froze one, and ate one for dinner now.
Really delicious, cooked a little lower than usual.
Perfect for a crowd. Prepare as you would a brisket - it comes out great every time.
The recommendation for this choice for my holiday brisket was perfect!!
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|
