Some cosmetic changes in preparation for larger site changes in the works.


I’ve noticed there are two kinds sold here, one labeled chuck and one labeled shoulder. The latter

generally looks a bit leaner to me. Years ago when chuck was sold bone-in, I bought something called an arm roast that had a round bone in it. It made a wonderful pot roast. The alternative was a seven-bone roast that was fattier, IMO.

Cook’s Illustrated recipes often call for chuck-eye roast. They look more evenly marbled without big globs of fall. I have never seen anything with that label. I’ve asked questions a couple of times, got blank looks. Another cut I love for pot roast is chuck top blade, but I don’t see them here, except sliced and sold as flat iron steaks and seldom see the steaks. Don’t know where all those cuts have gone.

I watched that segment of the kitchen and agree that was a lovely looking pot roast. I usually tie the cuts I buy.
