Shoulder of lamb* hand-diced by our expert butchers to approximately one inch pieces for added versatility. Perfect for casseroles, curries and kebabs.
Chef Valentine Warner says that "shoulder is my absolute go to when using diced-meat for stews and braises. Containing a considerably higher fat content than the leg it renders to a delicious almost gluey softness that I so prefer.
Try a vindaloo (or vindalho) containing white wine vinegar, green chillies and a lot of garlic (Goan curry based on the traditional Portuguese dish carne de vinha d'alhos). Eaten with rice is of course a natural pairing or instead hollow out a loaf of crusty white bread and serve it within South African bunny chow-style.
Continuing the chilli theme try making a Mexican birria-style casserole with ancho and guajillo chillies, apple cider vinegar and spices and eating with soft flour tortillas. Truly delicious.
A French ragoût or navarin of lamb, with tomatoes is a wonderful thing, yet returning more homewards to slow braises with carrots, turnips and pearl barley is delicious or perhaps even with leeks, dill and capers in a white sauce.
A most favourite amongst tagine styles is a barkouk; the lamb spiced with a little black pepper, cumin, saffron and cinnamon and cooked with acacia honey and prunes and served garnished with boiled eggs and toasted Spanish almonds.
When in Japan I like to thread small pieces of diced lamb shoulder onto a skewer and cook carefully over glowing charcoal, serve with yakitori tare and a cold beer!"
Swaledale lambs roam free across vast distances, migrating between valleys and hill tops, foraging as they go. The limestone pastures of the Yorkshire Dales are home to a unique range of herbs, grass and wildflowers, the cocktail of which bestows the lamb with a rich, deep colour to the meat and distinctive flavour. Robust and slightly sweet in character, the Swaledale lamb also has a subtle herbal undertone; the provenance is unmistakably Yorkshire. Swaledale Diced Shoulder of Lamb is Always Fresh Never Frozen®, butchered to order, vacuum packed, and shipped in recyclable packaging to arrive safely insulated and ready to enjoy.
