Blade Roast

As its name suggests, the Blade Roast is extracted from the shoulder blade of a cow. Generally, a Blade Roast weighs approximately 3-4 lbs (1.3-1.8kg), with its thickness ranging around 3-4 inches (7-10cm). Since it comprises different types of muscles as well as connective tissues, the tenderness of Blade Roast can vary from being moderately to extremely tough.
