Organic Mutton Shank
Turn up the volume on a slow-cook classic
Taken from the lower leg of the mutton carcass, organic mutton shank is a slow-cooking cut that marries unbeatable flavour with incredible texture. Complex muscles are held together by melting connective tissue and layered with delicate fat meaning this is a cut with bags of character. Add in the marrow from the substantial bone and you've got the perfect cut for super-slow casseroles that don't need much attention but which deliver wholesome heartiness. Perfect for warming you up on a warm day, mutton shank is also a happy partner for Indian and North African flavours.

Mutton may not enjoy the popularity that it once did, but we think it's one of the most distinctive and tasty meats you can get. It comes from sheep that have grown to over 2 years and is darker in colour and more intense in flavour than lamb. With thoughtful preparation and attentive cooking, mutton delivers taste-bud tingling results and is hearty enough to be paired with punchy spices and high-impact ingredients. And eating mutton isn't just a treat for lovers of good food, it's also a way to make the very best use of meat from older ewes that might otherwise be under-valued.

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.

Organic mutton shanks really aren't difficult to cook, delivering deliciousness in return for patience. They can be browned all over, then braised in white wine and lamb stock pepped up with lots of woody herbs and a good pinch of seasoning. Cook in a low oven for at least three hours and serve with buttery mash and seasonal greens. To give things a North African twist, rub your mutton shanks with fragrant ras-el-hanout before searing the skin then slow-cooking with red wine, passata, garlic, ginger and chickpeas. Serve on a bed of lemony herbed couscous, drizzled with some pomegranate molasses.
