A superb slow cook cut, Lamb Fore Shanks are cut from the lower part of the front leg and are much smaller than the traditional Lamb Shank. When slowly, gently braised, our Lamb Fore Shanks will deliver rich, tasty, fall-off-the-bone tender meat. We recommend serving two per person, although one makes an ideal meal for smaller appetites or kids.
Head Chef's Tip:
Their neat size lets you pop them straight into the pot whole, where they will retain their shape and take added flavour from the bone. Try braising them with red wine, garlic and rosemary, and serve with seasonal vegetables and of course lots of the rich, thick gravy!

About 30 minutes before cooking, remove the defrosted meat from its packaging and pat dry with kitchen paper. Allow the meat to react room temperature. Pre-heat the oven to 140°C / 275-325°F / Gas 1-3. Heat a large ovenproof pan on a high heat, add a little oil and sear the meat until nicely browned all over. Then take out the meat and Sear any vegatable in this pan, add stock/wine and place the meat back in the pan, ensuring the liquid covers atleast a 1/3 to 1/2 of the meat and bring gently to the boil on the hob. Cover with a lid and transfer into the preheated oven, or continue to simmer gently on the hob at a very low temperature. Check from time to time and top up liquid if needed. Cooking times vary depending on the cut and your oven but as a rule, try to check casseroles after an hour and regular intervals after. The easiest way to check joints is to use a meat folk, inserting it into thickest part.

Fresh, tasty and full of flavour. Would order again
As always ..excellent ! Never fail to impress
Lots of meat and very good quality
We have had numerous lamb shanks in the past and they have always been excellent.Unfortunately three of the latest batch were
very disappointing. They didn't fall off the bone as they usually do and the texture can only be described as "chewy".
Thanks for your comment. 

We’re sorry the Lamb Fore Shanks wasn't to your taste, but we appreciate your feedback.  We have now been in touch and resolved this to your satisfaction, but please let us know if we can be of any further assistance.
Always lovely. Have purchased several times.
I cook these in my slow cooker and on a cold, dreary day they make the perfect comfort food.
Cooked them for a few hours with wine and a mild chorizo. Super tender and delicious beyond expectation - and hope.
Not much meat on the bones
Love these cuts as they are so versatile
Meat falls off the bone, great value for money
Look very nice though not tried yet but bought due to special recipe sent previous month
Very tasty! as we have come to expect now.
Cooked beautifully and taste lovely
excellent for taste and tenderness when one takes the time to do them properly. Don't hurry.
Have bought before. A much better size than the lamb shanks generally available. Also without the big pieces of skin and gristle.
Always lovely - melt in the mouth!
Ahh fabulous
Can't believe the prices great value
