About this cut
Trimmed to perfection, our Whole Brisket includes the first and second cut brisket held together by a vein of marbling that bastes your roast from the inside. This is the best brisket you've ever tasted: flavorful, rich, tender, delightful.
This brisket comes from our Black Angus cattle, which are specially bred for tenderness and raised in the US on pasture with no hormones or antibiotics. With their carefully balanced diet of pasture, hay and grain, our beef is tender, well-marbled, and flavorful. How do we do it? Our cattle are raised sustainably on carefully managed US rangeland (never on deforested South American rainforest lands).
Want to increase the quality of your shabbat or holiday meals? You don't need a better brisket recipe -- you just need a better brisket. It's right here.
We take care every step of the way to make sure the meat is raised well, processed humanely, expertly butchered, carefully packaged, delivered seamlessly and prepared with confidence in your kitchen. It is our great pleasure to bring these delicious meats to your table.
Basic Cooking Technique:
Braise low and slow. Make sure your pan is covered, and there is enough liquid in the pot to come up a third of the way over the roast. After a couple hours, flip and add more liquid (broth, water, wine, etc.) as needed. Our favorite additions are onions, red wine, garlic, carrots, thyme, and chicken broth.

Products are packed with coolant during their journey to ensure they arrive in great shape. Meats will arrive frozen or refrigerated. Most of our products are shipped frozen; occasionally, due to a very quick turnaround between when the meats arrive at our freezing and distribution facility and when they are delivered to you, meats may be shipped fresh. Meat that is cold to the touch can be refrigerated for immediate use, or frozen for later use. Learn more.

THE WHOLE BRISKET THAT WE HAD PURCHASED WAS ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE. WE COOKED IT FOR 9.5 HOURS ON AT 250 AND IT LITERALLY WAS PULLING APART WHEN WE TOOK IT OUT. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS FOR ANYONE LOOKING TO MAKE BRISKET. WOULD LOVE TO TRY COOKING THIS IN A SMOKER OR ON A GRILL.
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.
