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!
  • Grass-fed, naturally reared UK lamb
  • Cut from the lower part of the front leg
  • Look great when served on the bone

Storage Conditions: Store at < -18ºC (Supplied frozen)
Recommended Shelf Life once defrosted: Store between 0 - 5ºC Use within 24 hours
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 140ºC/275-325ºF/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.

I cook these in my slow cooker and on a cold, dreary day they make the perfect comfort food.
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
Lovely flavour, we do them in the slow cooker. Popular with the family
deliciously very tasty i would recommend them.
Slow cooked they are succulent
I was very disappointed with my first time trying these. Hardly any meat all gristle. Will use my own local butcher for this item as his are excellent better value. We’re sorry the Lamb Fore Shanks were not up to scratch, but thank you for bringing it to our attention. 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.
These were awesome - goon amount of meat and very tasty
