Product description

An old-fashioned cut, once out of favour but now making a resurgence in households and restaurants across the country, mutton leg is naturally lean and full of flavour. Delicious boiled and served classically with a white sauce enriched with the boiling liquor, it is equally delicious served with a punchy green sauce heavy on the anchovies.

Chef George Ryle inspires:
"A whole mutton leg makes for a great roaster, low and slow for tender meat, best served medium. Serve with potatoes à la dauphinoise, with as much garlic as is possible, or pommes boulangère - either a superb accompaniment. Or, on a similar theme, what about a soul-satisfying Swiss chard gratin. The recipe in Richard Olney’s seminal book Lulu’s Provençal Table is outstanding and would pair up a treat with the complex flavours of the mutton.

There is also a tradition for brining and boiling mutton legs. This is a slightly trickier preparation for leg of mutton but one that is eminently delicious. The ‘boil’ is a little misleading as what is actually required is a very gentle simmer. Drop some peeled carrots and potatoes into the pot towards the end and serve with a sauce made from the liquor, thickened with a little roux and then spruced up with plenty of capers, anchovies and freshly chopped parsley."

*By virtue of its 2+ years of age spent living wild and free on the Yorkshire Dales, our heritage breed mutton has a full and rich flavour, characterised by an entirely natural diet of grasses, herbs and heather; this unique taste is its crowning glory.


Grass-fed mutton.
