*Price may vary depending on weight

Cube Roll 7R GF Angus MB2 Boneless, also known as Rib-eye Lip-off Choice, offers a flavorful, versatile, and budget-friendly option for various culinary creations. Derived from the same area as Ribeye but with the exceptionally tender spinalis dorsi removed, this grain-fed cut still maintains excellent marbling and flavor - ideal for pan-searing, sous vide.

Also known as: Chuck Roll Roast, Chuck Roast

The John Dee Super Gold Cube Roll is a boneless cut that comes from the prized rib-eye section, specifically the center of the ribeye. This cut removes a slightly tougher secondary muscle from the center-cut ribeye, resulting in a uniform texture, exceptional tenderness, and a beautiful presentation.

Important Notes:
- Good Marbling: Cube roll has decent marbling for the Choice grade, so it can handle high-heat methods for a nice sear.
- Aim for Medium: While medium-rare is ideal for many cuts, cube roll benefits from being cooked to at least medium for optimal tenderness.

Pan-Searing and Oven Finish:
1. Preheat oven to 220°C (425°F).
2. Heat a cast-iron skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat.
3. Sear cube roll on all sides, including the fat cap, until well-browned.
4. Transfer pan to preheated oven and roast until desired doneness.

Reverse Sear:
1. Preheat oven to a low temperature of 100-120°C (225-250°F).
2. Slow-roast the cube roll on a wire rack on a baking sheet until about 10-15 degrees below your desired final temperature.
3. Heat a cast-iron skillet or grill pan over very high heat. Sear the cube roll on all sides, 1-2 minutes per side for a deeply browned crust.

1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
2. Sear the cube roll over direct heat on all sides to get a nice char.
3. Move to indirect heat and continue cooking, closing the grill lid, until desired doneness.

- Thermometer is Helpful: Use a meat thermometer to ensure you reach your desired doneness, particularly since the cube roll doesn't have a bone. - - Aim for medium (60-63°C/140-145°F).
- Rest, Then Slice: Let the cube roll rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing to ensure maximum juiciness.
Slice Against the Grain: Cut across the grain for the most tender bites.

Rare (52-55°C / 125-130°F): Soft texture, very red center. Delivers strong beefy flavor with some richness from the marbling.

Medium-Rare (57-60°C / 135-140°F): Recommended for most people. Balances tenderness with a juicy, flavorful center. Bright pink and warm throughout.

Medium (63-65°C / 145-150°F): Firmer texture, light pink center. Still enjoyable, but some tenderness may be lost compared to medium-rare.

Medium-Well (68-70°C / 155-160°F): Pinkish-gray center. Noticeably firm. As cube roll has some marbling, cooking to this level still risks some dryness.

Well-Done (Above 71°C / 160°F): Generally not recommended, especially for a cube roll with marbling, as it can become tough and dry.
