A delicious, traditional cut that you might not have heard of
Let's clear this up: while this might be called a 'leg of mutton cut' it's definitely beef and has nothing at all to do with mutton. Taken from the inside of the shoulder, organic beef LMC when trimmed and tied does bear a resemblance to a leg of lamb, which is presumably how the name arose. It's an old-fashioned joint, rarely seen these days, mainly because it's more usually turned into mince or stewing steak. But it's delicious when cooked slowly and is so full of character and we think it deserves more attention. Why not try our tradional recipe Pot roast with ale and onion gravy
Organic beef LMC is a lean cut comprising a collection of shoulder muscles and their connective tissue. Coming from the shoulder of a slow-grown animal that has free ranged on grass means these muscles are well exercised and mature. But that maturity doesn't mean toughness or dryness, it means rounded flavour and exceptional yielding texture when cooked at leisure. As an added bonus, this is a really thrifty joint that will go far in feeding a crowd.

Freezing is the most natural way of preserving food. And as here at Coombe Farm Organic we believe in slow-grown, healthy food, a form of preservation that doesn’t need artificial additives gets a big tick from us.
We use blast freezing to preserve all of our meat products. It’s done at the point of butchery, to temperatures of -26°C. This locks in all the freshness, flavour and nutritional value and means you get the longest possible shelf life at home once you’ve defrosted it.
It also guarantees it will arrive with you in tiptop condition - confidently delivering fresh meat would be much more challenging.
All of our meat is butchered in our in-house butchery by our small team. This means we have full control of what is cut and also means that we can accommodate more requests from our customers.
You will find any product ingredients on the relevant product pages.

To make the most of the leg of mutton cut, slow cook in rich beef stock with simple salt-and-pepper seasoning, fresh woody herbs like rosemary or thyme and some root veg for at least an hour and a half – longer if you have time. During cooking the gelatinous tissues and sinews will melt away into the gravy, thickening, enriching and flavouring it. Once cooked the meat will be tender succulent and almost flaky.
