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 Lamb
  • Cut from the lower part of the front leg
  • Look great when served on the bone

About 30 minutes before cooking, remove the defrosted meat from its packaging and pat dry with kitchen paper. Allow the meat to react to 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 vegatables in the pan, add stock/wine and place the meat back in the pan, ensuring the liquid covers at least 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.

Delicious and tender. Great to leave in the oven whilst doing other work.
tasty casserole rich gravy
Absolutely wonderful. The meat falls off the bone and they take less than no time to cook in the slow cooker. I have made a repeat purchase since my 1st purchase in September. This product is a keeper...
One of our favourites, a regular purchase
Fantastic value. Good with recommended recipe
These are a family favourite. Well trimmed and as much meat as you'd expect on a fore shank. We eat one each and it's more than enough. The meat comes off the bones easily when cooked and it is tender, juicy and great tasting.
Delicious, just the right size portion.
Very nice and tender not quite big enough for my husband but ideal for me.
I was disappointed with these as there was quite a bit of gristle and general chewiness.
I cooked two of them for 2 hours in a deep dish with liquid. I thought this would be a sufficient time as the shanks aren't very big.
I will try doing them a little differently and for longer next time in the...
