    Sourced Prime Chuck Roast

    Sourced just over 5 pounds of beautiful prime chuck roast for $7.99 a pound from the local Fresh Market. Added some semi-boneless leg of lamb too. Now I am all set for the next time we make some sausages and burgers. I am just satisfied I was able to get some prime chuck as it is the only place in my area and finding this online was tricky as well.

    Wow, $7.99 for Prime Chuck is a great price. Do you really find a difference between Prime and Choice Chuck? I ask this because only the ribeye is graded by a USDA inspector. If the ribeye is graded prime, then the rest of the cow is prime. At least that is what I was told by an old time butcher with 40 years experience. Maybe he was wrong or it's changed.

    As an old guy, I've eaten a lot of beef and I've never seen or tasted a difference between Prime and Choice Filets and Tri-tip.

      TripleB my copy of "Beef Secrets" arrived today and it looks like Mr. O'Hara personally autographed it. Neat bonus. I am exited to check it out.

      gboss I thought he had passed away. He must be well into his eighties or even nineties. Surprised since he is (was?) a big chain smoker. Nice guy and also a master gardener. I took his wife's canning class just so I could get her spaghetti marinara sauce recipe. Which I use to this day. Hope you enjoy the book.

      TripleB this was a used copy, so I am not sure when it was signed and to whom.

    It'd be interesting to try to figure out which muscles are in the roast they cut for you. Depending on which ones you have and if they are marbled enough, you might want to consider breaking it down Japanese style and using it for yakiniku or the like.

    This is a cool video:

      Alright. You convinced me to drag them out of the freezer tomorrow and get some pics. Let’s see what we can learn.

        With chuck roast I think a lot of it has to do with what part of the chuck primal it’s cut from. At least that’s my theory. I often see very lean chuck roasts and occasionally I see very well marbled roasts. Here’s a choice chuck roast I picked up recently. Any time I see one like this I buy it and throw it in the freezer.

          STEbbq I bought my chuck from Click Akaushi, $33.99 for what is advertised as a 3.2-4.2 lb roast. The one I received was 4.6 lbs. I bought a lot of other stuff too and used the discount code you finagled. Shipping was$17 to SE Texas.

            That is definitely on the list for a future order but I thought I should try the prime chuck first!

            Those look to me like they're cross cut from the chuck roll, towards the neck end. I'll go back and see if I can find anything more specific.
