Cross Rib Roast

Kent Blinston | | Jan 28, 2000 01:35 PM

I'm looking to buy a cut of beef that used to be common but now seems difficult to find: a cross rib roast. It's a small roast, around 3 to 5 pounds if I remember correctly, and has 3 or 4 shortribs attached on one side. I have asked a couple of butchers about getting a cross rib roast but they have told me they would have to change the way they cut a large section of a side of beef to produce the little roast I want and that I would have to purchase the whole lot. Does anyone out there know a butcher shop that regularly, or at least occasionally, sells cross rib roasts? Thanks.
