Bone-in - but you get to choose between the upper & lower end of the shoulder, eg my piece weighed 1.1kg so it's not the whole shoulder (though I guess you could ask the butcher to do you a whole shoulder if you want more). This is a good thing as it means you can get the best end with more meat instead of bone. I'll post a picture typical of what I got.

I'm really craving lamb today really badly. I prefer leg of lamb.

Never be too proud to accept you made a mistake!

I went back to Morrisons to get 4 more for the freezer & engaged yon happy butcher in playful conversation. It turns out that shank end - see my first picture - has a lot more bone in it than blade end (pic follows). So I bought 4 of those instead.

They always show the neck fillet still in place on promo images of shoulder blade joints, yet it's mysteriously never there when you come to buy.
same price in tesco fresh counter. bought some as morrisons drive away and prefer tesco
Mmmm, mouth watering. What's the best way to cook this cut? Have only cooked leg in the past.

I cooked my first bit today - delicious - I stuck in 5 garlic cloves sliced in 2 so 10 pieces - whacked it in the oven from cold but up to 225C for 25 mins - reduced oven to 50C for 2 hours - then left it in whilst I increased heat ready for potatoes & parsnips again 200C, took the meat out after 10 mins of that, to rest for about 45 mins, it was really tender & much of the fat had rendered down, pink in the middle still, the garlic slices were not sharp but sweet

Have you ever considered using a Meat Thermometer, takes care of the guess work?

is that on the market or a local farm? Morrisons lamb is pretty good quality plus you know they sourced it properly

I worked in a drudge role in a 5* restaurant when I was 16 - really posh place with nearly 20 chefs & under-chefs - the beef got delivered in half sides & they butchered it in-house.

The chefs enjoyed eating the beef completely raw - only the best bits I guess - but no lemon juice etc added to make it semi-cooked. Thin slices of top raw beef - delicious
