What is this cut of beef?

I purchased a 1/4 of grass-fed beef from a local farm. I picked it up pre-cut/wrapped/frozen/labelled by their butcher. Great variety of cuts, plus the farmer threw in extra soup bones, dog bones, and variety meats that other customers weren't interested in.
One mystery, though- I have 3 or 4 packs labelled as "dellies" or "oellies", not sure due to the handwriting. I'm not sure what this is, under either spelling. Can anyone enlighten me?

      That's what my wife thought, but the label doesn't look like that to me. We have brisket and flank packaged separately, which is more what I'd think of as the "belly" of a steer. Also, these packs are small, maybe 6"x4" and less than a pound each. I'll have to open one up tomorrow and check it out I guess.

      1. Maybe give them a call?

        If it's onglets, you sir are a lucky man :)

          kler - yeah I was thinking "onglet in a bag of unwanted scraps? - I'd wish..."

          but unless the butcher was really unorthodox, the description doesn't quite match. ehh who knows.

        2. Everything's wrapped in freezer paper and I'm at work for the night. I'll unwrap one tomorrow and if I haven't figured it out by then I'll be sure to post a photo. Thanks, everyone.
