Learning your chops
If you’re selecting choice lamb from Gourmet Meat Club to add to your meat box, here’s a little guide to help you pack in the cuts and chops you want.
Shoulder chops generally have rich marbling with that trademark lamb tenderness and lovely fatty content. They don’t need cooking very long to become the ultimate comfort food.
Loin chops are the most common. They’re the T-shaped steaks that are small on size and massive on flavour.
Lamb shanks are lean, meaty, and deliver an intense hit of lamb flavour that should also come with melt-in-the-mouth tenderness. But only if you’re patient enough to wait the hours (up to eight) they will take to slow cook to perfection.
Leg of lamb is the favourite cut for a roast, and can also come as steak or cutlets. It’s the leanest cut of lamb and can also be enjoyed rare if that’s how you like it.
Lamb is also available from the Gourmet Meat Club’s block as the mighty Barnsley chop; a cut that provides twice the loin meat and comes on the bone for extra flavour, plus a nice case of fat to keep things juicy. Just the thing for lamb-lovers who don’t do things by halves.
The lowdown on lamb
The term lamb can only be applied to meat from a sheep under 12 months of age. This means it’s much more tender and has a more delicate flavour than mutton, the meat from older sheep.
It goes without saying that the freshest lamb is best. As well as always choosing the freshest, we also make sure we select only grass-fed, free-range lamb that’s the best of British.
When it comes to the meat, we choose the best cuts of fine-grained meat with firm, white fat. All this contributes to ensure tender, succulent lamb with perfect flavour however you prepare it.
Whether you choose a leg of lamb for the Sunday roast with all the trimmings, or try something different like a spicy eastern treat, lamb will always deliver. Just as tempting, Gourmet Meat Club will always deliver the very best lamb that money can buy.
