Greetings All:

I live in the Netherlands and for the life of me can't get a butcher to understand the cut of brisket!

Can anyone help to trying to explain this to a butcher?

I have brought photos and explanations... to no avail

    Hey there Steve, hello from your german neighbour B)

    Over here Brisket is known as stew meat but i rarely find a whole one without ordering it. Even in wholesale and restaurant supply shops they are available, but are delivered in cryovac and sliced in the middle and the dolded to get a better packing size :S

    If your butcher cant help you when you bring a pic and tell him you want a the flat piece of the beef´s breast part youre propably going to the wrong butcher who doesnt cut up the cows by himself but rather gets the bigger pieces delivered.

    Check some other stores or try to make friends with a good butcher, maybe even bring some BBQ after he got a special order for you. I´m sure that will pay out for you.

    Might tell him when he cuts the front leg off the forequarter it is the piece with the leg. In front of the Arm Roast. The bones under the meat are the plate bones.
