What is the Best Cut of Lamb?

All our delicious cuts of lamb are trimmed from the most premium quality lamb on the market, so there is no definitive answer for what we can classify as the ‘best’ overall but depending on the dish you are wishing to create there may be the best option of cut. A tender shank or rack cut is a flavoursome choice for a roast, whereas succulent lamb ribs are a great choice for a BBQ.

What Cut is a Lamb Chump?

A lamb chump is found on the lower back of the lamb where the loin meets the leg. The cut offers a generous marbling of fat, which helps to keep the meat succulent and tender.

Marbling is an effect that is caused by intramuscular fat increasing due to the rearing and feeding methods used by our farming partners. 

What Cut is a Lamb Rack?

A lamb rack is generally a selection of ribs, which usually include at least four ribs. The ribs come from the section of the carcass on either side of the backbone between the loin and the shoulder.

How Should You Cook Lamb Chops?

First, marinate your lamb chops with the ingredients of your choice. Ensure the rub is left on for at least one hour.

Remove your lamb chops from the fridge 20 minutes before you want to cook them. Seal the juices in a hot pan and put the chops in the oven at 180° and cook for 15 minutes. Take them out of the oven and rest for at least ten minutes before serving.

How Should You Cook a Leg of Lamb?

First, make a delicious marinade by blending wild garlic, parsley, cumin, pepper, rosemary, and thyme. Rub this on your leg of lamb at least 24 hours before cooking. To cook the lamb leg, seal in the juices with a pan on high heat, before transferring to a 170°C oven for approximately 40 minutes or until it probes with a centre heat of 40° degrees.
