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
  • A delicious humble cut, from the lower part of the front leg
  • These look great served on the bone

  Professionally shock frozen
Storage Conditions: Supplied frozen only: - Store at <-18ºC
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.

Turned out fine -in the end, though I did get a bit concerned as to how long it took before they were as tender as I wanted them You really do mean "long slow cooking" don't you. 7 hours !!! However, wonderful flavour.
Disappointed lacked flavour.
Wonderful slow cooked with plenty of onions, garlic, tomato and herbs!
Ideal size for slow cooker meat just falls off the bone.
It isn't winter if I don't have regular days of slow cooking this product along with some turnip, carrot and potato. 2 Bay leaves are 'de rigueur' in my slow cooking. Nothing like returning home to the smell of this table-ready simple winter feast. P.S. I like in summer as well. Versatile meat and unctuous... Read More.
