Organic Lamb Mini Shank
A homely cut that's perfectly sized to serve one
Organic lamb mini shanks are cut from the foreleg of the lamb carcass, so are smaller than the more substantial hind-leg shanks. One shank per person makes a perfectly sized portion. As they're made up of a collection of very hard-working muscles, slow-cooking is the way to go with this cut. It results in meat so tender it falls off the bone and allows all of the nutritious collagen and connective tissue to melt down and enrich the gravy. If you're looking for a cut that's easy to prepare, really delivers on hearty flavour but doesn't break the bank, mini lamb shanks are a winning choice.

Lamb is one of Britain's most traditional meats but, disappointingly, it's not as popular as it once was. Sheep are important in agriculture, not just because of the meat and wool they provide, but also because of the work they do to shape our landscape. Our lowland pastures and hilly uplands all benefit from being grazed by sheep – they crop close to the ground, allowing herbs and small plants to thrive alongside grasses. The diversity of species this promotes encourages insects and wildlife, creating a healthy and vibrant ecosystem.

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.

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.

For maximum tenderness, give your organic mini lamb shanks needs a good couple of hours in a low oven, making sure they're well covered with liquid. For a comforting winter-warmer braise them in ale and lamb stock flavoured with plenty of rosemary. Add a Mediterranean twist by combining red wine and chopped tomatoes with pitted black olives and sprigs of fresh oregano. And for a taste of North African that works wonderfully with the robust flavour of lamb, use fiery harissa and warming spices like cinnamon, ginger and cumin to bring tagine flavours to the table.
