Joe's English/Shoulder Roast

An English or shoulder roast is a flavorful cut of beef sourced from the shoulder area of the cow. It’s prized for its rich marbling and deep beefy flavor, making it ideal for slow cooking methods like braising, roasting, or stewing. Despite being from a muscle that works hard, the English roast becomes tender and juicy when cooked low and slow, allowing its connective tissues to break down and infuse the meat with flavor. English roast is a versatile cut that lends itself well to hearty dishes such as pot roast, beef stew, or shredded beef sandwiches, providing a comforting and satisfying meal for any occasion.
