Just thought I'd pass along a great beef experience....A few weeks ago, I bought a chuck (shoulder) roast from these guys at the Brickworks. Better yet, the "lesser" cuts are seemingly on a 2 for 1 special all the time. So I got two quality roasts for $16 (higher price roast wins). It worked out to $3/lb, I believe. Really a good price for high quality beef. I think the other cut included in this special is a sirloin tip, or something like that.
Anyhow, I grind chuck in order to make burgers. usually, I pick up a blade steak or a small chuck roast from Loblaws. when I defrosted this one (buying frozen meat may be an issue for some) and started cubing it, I was immediately impressed by the almost purple colour and really nice and fine marbling. the end product was amazing. Although I overcooked them (my fault, not the meat's) they were extremely juicy and flavourful. The loblaws stuff I normally buy is pretty juicy, but does not have the rich beefy flavour this stuff had. I am hooked. Have another roast in the freezer and looking forward to another burger night.
As an aside, they also had some frozen short ribs, the looked extremely meaty and very nicely marbled. They also sell lamb, which I haven't tried. They did however say they could bring in shoulder roasts AND lamb belly, which is very tough to find.
They have a website
Not too responsive, though. I emailed the guy and got a response, but none to my follow ups on pre-ordering a specific cut. However, the guy at the Brickworks looks pretty lonely most of the time, so I'm sure you'll have no problem getting his attention.
