Help me identify this meat

nuts4food Nov 2, 2013 06:57 PM

As you can see, it was labeled cholent meat. Any idea what it might be and what I can do with it other than cholent. My access to kosher beef is limited, so I like to try different recipes with the beef I can find. Thanks for your help.

    Looks like shins. It will work for soup or stews.

      it's beef mozat - it's kalichel, cut lengthwise (leg meat). best way to cook it is in cholent-like dishes - low and slow stews.

        Def mozat - used to flavor bean or vegetable dishes. Very rich flavor but needs to be slow cooked, like a braise.
