Beef chuck is the classic cut for pot roast. Chuck roast is a collagen-rich cut from the shoulder. It’s very flavorful but it’s best braised, rather than roasted (despite its name). Slow braising breaks down the connective tissues and tenderizes the meat. In addition to pot roast, chuck roast is ideal for beef stew or a hearty vegetable beef soup. Because of its fat content, ground chuck also produces juicy burgers.

Grass Fed & Pasture Raised
Silver Fern Farms Angus beef is grass-fed & finished, raised free range on massive, pristine pastures in New Zealand. No hormone or antibiotic growth promotants are ever used, and GMO seeds are illegal there.
Because of New Zealand's moderate climate, these cattle are pasture raised year round, with free access to windbreaks and other structures for shelter from inclement weather.
Selected for Excellence
Silver Fern Farms is a co-op of small family farmers across New Zealand. The Angus program combines the Angus breed, renowned for superior marbling, flavor, and texture, with a grading system that ensures you get great beef every time. It has a clean, boldly beefy flavor without the heavy tallow characteristic of commodity beef.
Careful quality grading ensures it is consistently more marbled, tender, and flavorful than much of the grass-fed beef available in the US.
Not only is grass fed beef more humane, it's better for you too. Grass fed beef is lower in saturated fat as well as higher in valuable nutrients like vitamins A & E, conjugated linoleic acid (aka CLA), and omega-3 fatty acids.
