This cut has a special place in my heart because someone made me the Lubiya recipe (from the Grow and Behold blog) when I had my first baby and it was the first real meal I had had and it tasted like the best thing I had ever eaten. I still make the same recipe (although I up the spices a bit and add both cinnamon and thyme), and it's a huge favorite with my family and everyone I serve it to.
This veal was as dark as much of the beef stew I buy, but at a premium price. I'm not sure you can legitimately call this veal. I understand the ethical reasons for rose veal, but I get kosher veal from simple neighborhood stores or from places like Fischer Brothers and Leslie in New York, and the veal is much, much lighter for less money per pound. It was a tasty stew, but so is beef.
From Grow and Behold:
Thanks for the review! All of our veal is Rose Veal, which is very different from the veal you are used to, or buying in other stores.
Conventional veal is lighter in color since it's raised in confinement, on a special diet. Our calves are raised on pasture, with their mothers, eating nursing, naturally weaned, and eating grass. So that's why the color is darker (like in the pictures above)
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|
|2.75lb - 10.24lb||0.25lb|
