Mutton Fore-Shank

£4.95

  • 1 x 100% Grass-Fed Mutton Fore-Shank (400g)

 

Cut from the lower part of the leg, fore-shanks are slightly smaller than their well-known counterpart, but coming from mutton instead of lamb, these longer-matured cuts are larger than the lamb fore-shank, and therefore provide a generous portion for one. Still with the fantastic, rich flavour and melt-away meat associated with the traditional mutton shank, these fore-shanks are a flavour-filled alternative to the sometimes too large, traditional full shank.

Further information

Our Mutton has grazed the lush green pastures here in the heart of South Leicestershire for between three and five years. Given its maturity, Mutton is naturally lean and lower in fat than Lamb, and its time spent grazing nothing but grass here in Ashby Parva has allowed for the meat to develop a bold, in-depth flavour which holds its own when combined with strong spices and condiments. Hung for a minimum of ten days, our Mutton is incredibly tender when cooked slowly, and provides a stronger flavour than the younger options of Hogget or Lamb. To the exacting specifications of our artisan Butcher, all cuts are butchered by hand, and prepared for you with a great deal of care and attention.
