Shoulder of Lamb is a large meat cut, located around the shoulder and front leg area. This makes it very economically priced in terms of price per kg.
As a result of substantial marbling and the bone, lamb shoulder is extremely tasty. The flavour is intense, making it one of the most popular cuts for sharing among a group of friends.
Lamb shoulder is commonly used in stews with the bone helping to give an extra flavour. Alternatively, it is great for roasting as the lamb after it is well marinated. It is recommended to slow-cook or slow-roast the lamb shoulder in order for the maximum flavour to come out.
Shoulder of lamb is typically available either as a whole-shoulder or half-shoulder. A 2kg lamb shoulder will be an appropriate serving for 6 to 8 people.
