Twin Cities - Where to find veal bones?

  • 6

Does anyone know where to find veal bones in the Twin Cities area for stock-making purposes? I tried all the higher-end grocery stores as well as Von Hansons and apparently none of them cut their own meat (i.e. no leftover bones).

Thanks!

  1. Try Clancey's Meats and Fish in Linden Hills (Minneapolis):

    or, in St. Paul, Widmer's grocery on St. Clair Ave.

      I made a call to both Clancey's and Widmer's. Clancey's has bones for $3.99 a pound. Widmer's apparently doesn't carry veal of any kind.

    2. Maybe you can try lunds or Byerly, whenever I make Osso Bucco I would called up Lunds in uptown and order my veal shank. The butcher there would then ask me if how big I want it cut. So maybe they cut there own meat. or Try Forster Meat in Plymouth.

        lunds/byerl's just stopped cutting their own meat, it's now centralized for all the stores. i feel bad for our reg guys, they say they don't know what to do with their time. . .

        my suggestions for the op would be to try mike's in st paul, or ready meats or everett's in mpls, hackenmueller's in robbinsdale

          I also called Mike's butcher shop. They don't have bones. Haven't tried Everett's yet, but as I noted below, Ready Meats does have frozen bones, which I believe will work pretty well for stock making purposes.

          I spoke with Von Hansen's, and they have bones that they'd be happy to sell you...for $4.99 a pound. No thanks.

      2. I just got off the phone with Ready Meats on NE Johnson St. They have frozen bones for $2.98 a pound.
