Product Information


Bone-in lamb shanks are a more economical cut that is most often braised and prized for its rich flavor. Lamb foreshanks are smaller and less meaty, but also more affordable than the more popular lamb hindshanks.  Once braised their meat becomes very tender and can be served on the bone or pulled apart into strands.

Lamb shanks can be enjoyed in European dishes as well as recipes from the Middle East (they’re a great choice for Moroccan tagines).


Store lamb shanks in your freezer until you're ready to use them, then thaw only as many as you need.
