Premium Quality Lamb Cuts Available for Online Orders

21 October 2020

When it comes to choosing the perfect cut, price doesn’t necessarily mean the best. In fact, cuts that include a large amount of bone can be the most flavoursome and tender, where the collagen and marrow from the bone are released when cooking, tenderising and flavouring the meat. Look no further, below are premium quality lamb cuts available for online orders from L&L Butchers.

Lamb Shanks

The shank is a meaty cut from the lower end of the lamb leg. You could either have the French Cut or King Henry. Excellent for slow cooking, it’s great value and the bone running through the centre provides a lot of the flavour, releasing collagen as the joint cooks and tenderising the flesh. Shanks need low and slow cooking to achieve meltingly tender meat that falls off the bone. The rich meat can handle a good amount of flavour, so be bold. For delicious red wine braised shanks, dust the shanks in flour then brown in a hot pan before roasting in a low oven with carrots, celery, onions, herbs and plenty of red wine.

Lamb Leg

Lamb leg is popular due to its dark, melt-in-the-mouth meat and meat-to-bone ratio, making this one easy to carve at the dinner table. It comes as butterflied, easy carve roast, or bone in. You can keep things simple by slowly roasting the leg whole, studded with garlic and rosemary, for dark, tender meat. If you’re stuck for time and looking for a quicker supper, lamb leg steaks are a wonderful lean cut, each with a portion of bone in to keep the meat wonderfully juicy when cooked.

Lamb Chump Chops

Also referred to as rump, chump comes from the back side of the lamb where the top of the leg meets the loin. It’s a plump yet lean cut, with a generous layer of fat to keep the meat juicy. Unlike beef chump, lamb chump isn’t quite as popular, but it definitely should be.

Unlike the boneless steaks, chump chops contain bone so need slightly longer cooking. Both kinds of lamb chops and steaks are ideal for barbecuing and need no more than a drizzle of oil and seasoning before hitting the coals for perfect, smoky meat.

Lamb Loin Chops

Taken from the top of the back, the loin is a prized cut of lamb due to the super tender meat. It’s an ideal cut for roasting, however, as it doesn’t have a layer of fat for protection, care must be taken not to overcook. A rolled lamb loin makes for a great family roast. You can stuff your own or get your hands on a ready stuffed joint. As with rump, lamb loin chops are wonderful cooked on the BBQ, smothered in a herby, garlic marinade.

Lamb Cutlets

Cutlets are a perfect, quick cook cut and benefit from light cooking such as on the BBQ, grill or griddle. Dress with lemon and olive oil and eat like lollipops.
