These cuts are fairly lean (with the exception of Chuck Eye Roast, which is well marbled), and provide a nice contrast to our more richly marbled Signature Steak cuts.
Shank roast, Crosscut shank and Eye of Round are from the Round primal (the leg muscles). Through frequent use by our pasture-raised animals they develop intense beefy flavor.
These cuts are well suited to hearty recipes that call for roasting, braising, and other slow-cooking methods such as Dutch oven, pressure cooker or Instant-pot.
Shank Roast - Works well as the soup base for pho or Taiwanese beef noodles.
Crosscut shank - The same muscle as Shank Roast, although cut crosswise with the bone left in the center. Also works well as a soup base and can also be used for osso buco.
Eye of Round - Our leanest cut, suitable for stews or making your own beef jerky.
Chuck Eye Roast is a roast version of Chuck Eye steak. Just as Chuck Eye steaks are the 'poor man's Ribeye', Chuck Eye Roasts are a more economical version of a Prime Rib. This cut does well in an oven or smoker.
