    is New Zealand's lamb not halal?
    I used to work for one of the big retailers and spoken to the buying manager. He mentioned that pretty much all new Zealand lamb was halal. I asked why its not on the label and he said it would basically put most consumers off. But yes high likelihood of being halal.

    They’ve done a snaky one, there was British lamb on the front aisles where all the special offers were, that was at £13 per kg, NewZeland lamb which is £6.50 was amongst the lamb meat.
    This offer on New Zealand lamb only. It also had some ice frosting on the outside, so must be straight out of freezer containers onto the shop shelves. (edited)
    Incorrect dude, I got British.

    The till is spitting £6 off £40 for us so maybe go buy something first just to check. Will be using our voucher on 3 legs later today.

    Does anyone know when this deal runs until?
    Do supermarkets normally have lamb deals closer to Christmas, so mid December time at all?
    Tesco and asda normally do. But if they special offers on them round mine it was hard to get one as they was all snapped up

    Where are people getting these promo codes from??
    HUKDs of course

    There's a £15 off a £60 spend on here somewhere. Lemme know if you can't find it and I'll dig it out.

    Pair that with the 25% off 6 or more bottles of wine and boom.

    Not particularly cheap and halal is a big put off. Stick with Aldi @7.99 kg - British Lamb - baa
    I got British legs @£6.50 kg?

    Should have grabbed this morning, shelf empty ofcourse by after school run. Maybe I can try again tomorrow

    I would have got one, but need it to be cut into small pieces something I cannot do with a knife
    Cook it whole, then de-bone it + cut up the meat into smaller portions. Freeze the portions in individual freezer bags for easy defrosting.

    Saves wasting freezer space on that big leg bone (y). And, because of its nice strong flavour, it tastes just as good when defrosted (I often put into a sandwich or roll, after quickly warming for a minute in the microwave)

    Thanks for this deal OP

    p.s. I usually batch-cook two legs at a time, then portion-up for the freezer (they fit nicely top-to-toe in a roasting tin) (edited)

    Sainsbury's Local near me had no stock yesterday around midday. Tried again shortly after opening this morning and had lots of stock so got one. Sounds like they keep replenishing. Thanks.

    Always try to buy British - great find
    Why? It's generally not the tastiest lamb.

    Buy British, buy meat slaughtered in the right, humane way.
    Buying British doesn't guarantee it's not slaughtered by bacon-averse beardy men...

    Probably around half of it is.

    Lamb is one of those meats which has been increasing quickly in price... More so than beef or chicken.
    Good deal!
    It’s for that reason it’s been off my menu for months

    Going to put this here as a reminder. Good deal.
    I'll just park my reminder under your reminder if that's ok.

    Finally some good news. Will load up for the winter. not sure why we're importing lamb from new zealand though when we have excellent lamb in Britain.

    You might like paying the extortionate price for the much smaller number of meat sheep in the UK but many people can't.

    Try Waitrose? They're bound to have some, their little feet still clinging to a miniature union jack and the grins on their faces of knowing they had black passports...
