Organic Mutton Rump Steak
Ruby red and richly flavoured – a great alternative to beef steaks
Watch out, sirloin and rib eye, organic mutton rump steak might just be about to steal the limelight. This is a cut that's all about flavour, succulence and bite, delivering them all in every mouthful. Whereas lamb steaks are most often cut from the leg, we've gone for rump from the mutton carcass to really take advantage of the excellent texture that comes from slow-grown and well-worked muscle. The distinctly grassy flavour is bold enough to pair with strong accompaniments so turn up the dial with garlicky-herb butter, blue cheese mayo or a sweet-sharp redcurrant and port jus.
At Coombe Farm, our flocks of Dorset and Lleyn ewes and lambs are the ultimate free rangers. They're perfectly designed for our climate and, as ruminants, have evolved to be able to extract every last drop of goodness out of the grass they eat. That grass is grazed either straight from the field during the warmer months or as hay and silage during the winter. The flavour that you taste in our lamb or mutton can be directly attributed to what the sheep have eaten, so it's good to know that our pasture is fully organic and Soil Association certified, meaning you can be sure it's fertilized with natural materials and the meat you eat has no chemical taint.

At Coombe Farm we believe in sustainability. And we live it. Regarding our packaging:
Your delivery box is made of 100% recycled paper and is 100% recyclable.
To keep your order frozen we use ice packs which will retain a low temperature for a long period of time. Reuse them for a picnic or simply snip, empty the water and pop in your plastic recycling.
We use paper pulp sheets to insulate the box. They are great for craft projects or can also simply be recycled with paper waste.
We deliver our organic produce Tuesday – Saturday and you will be able to choose your preferred delivery day at checkout. The delivery charge is £5.
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.

Slow-grown organic mutton rump steak doesn't need much in the way of fussy prep. It's best when cooked medium-ish, so heat your pan until it's super-hot then, holding your steak with a pair of tongs, first sear the layer of fat to brown it off and start it rendering. When it's crispy and sizzling, flip the steak over and cook it for a couple of minutes each side. Finish it off with ten minutes in a hot oven to ensure it's tender. When it's done, wrap it in foil and give it a good ten-minute rest – you can use the time to pop open a bottle of fragrant Rioja.
