Chilled, But can be frozen,

These are horrible. Very small and about 25% fat.

This will not do Morrison's any good if they are crap - We have bought a couple and we know somebody who work's there and said if we got the receipt you can take them back if they don't look good

See more meat on his kneecap....

I got some of these from Morrisons the other day. They are not the best lamb shanks around, the Tesco Finest ones, and the Waitrose are much better , even though more expensive they are worth spending the extra. These shanks are quite small, did not satisfy me for dinner (with mashed potato and green veg), and the minted gravy/sauce was very runny/watery.

Verdict: Alright for a snack / light lunch, don't get these in to serve at a dinner party whatever you do ! !

I've been buying these for a while and have always found them to have loads of meat that just falls off the bone mmm...

I have just had them and they had enough meat on, I had them with potatoes and veg and the meat just fell off the bone, the gravy was just right, not runny,

Grim.

Mingin' If you want proper lamb go to to your local butchers or farmers market!!! Not even worth 74p. Cheap supermarket meat is V V low quality. In fact, expensive supermarket meat is nothing like what you would get from a decent butchers, who aren't that expensive! If you don't mind a bone wrapped in sinew and fat this is a cracking deal.

The ASDA version of these are fantastic, not fatty, thick gravy and so tender it falls off the bone.

have to disagree there, to supply a retailer you have to go through stringent processes, farm assurance programmes, microbiological tests and tracability to name a few. whereas a butcher will take product that has been frozen down from chilled and stock with minimal life on,

Try the Linda Mc Cartney ones No fat at all. These tast like something that rhymes with shank ;-)

Heat added, just to cook it a bit!!

So you don't buy anything with Chicken, Beef, Pork or Lamb in it at your local supermarket - is that what you are saying:roll:

WHAT? Do you know what you're talking about? Are you a small business butcher?
Every business that supplies and/or handles meat in this country is subject to those rules. You don't get 'let off' just because you're a small butchers shop!

Go and peddle your 'old wives tales' elsewhere son.

No sorry not a small business butcher, the company I work for is the biggest importer of lamb from new zealand so lets just say i know what I'm talking about,

Lets say you have an idea of the regulations that are applicable to a 'Meat Importer'. My brother runs a very successful butchers shop. I have worked for a Slaughter House (Abattoir), a Meat Wholesaler and a Butcher. Lets just say 'I KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT'. For someone that works within the industry I find it not only offensive that you come out with this rubbish but also foolish in the extreme. The British Meat industry is one of the most highly regulated in the world. The last thing it needs is someone who works within it to put out false information which 'some' may find alarming.

A proper butcher would not buy in frozen new zealand lamb, they would source locally. You're getting mixed up with the type of "butchers" you see in dodgy markets that wouldn't know the first thing about butchery.

Thank you John. I must say however that there are 'some' very good Market Butchers in this country.

lets not get into a slanging match here guys,
the discussion here was about Nutmegs comment that supermarket meat is nothing like what you what get from a butchers shop,
all butchers are different some buy frozen new zealand lamb and some source locally, there is nothing wrong with frozen down chilled product is flippin lovely and can taste better than meat that has been frozen after kill, and there is nothing wrong with meat with minimal life on, the standard is two years from kill and as you are both in the meat trade you will be aware that it could/should be longer, its just rules and regulations that stop it from being so, and jonboy a butcher will buy whatever he needs to make a living, he has a family to feed after all.

Agreed rosecatlin. Life's too short to bicker about this.


But English Lamb is better than NZ!

Sounds disgusting :w00t:

Nearly as bad as goat

Some butchers have their reputation to think about too, and will only source local meat.
I do live in the countryside though, where it is easier for a butcher to source locally. I can understand why a butcher in a large city would source from new zealand etc as it's easy to get hold of.
I find the easiest way to see if your butcher is in fact a butcher or just a meat reseller is to ask for something like breast of lamb, if they say they don't sell it, then usually it's because they don't buy in the whole carcass to butcher.

Regards

John
