The source of some of our favorite and most flavorful dishes, our sumptuous lamb foreshanks, have a melt-in-the-mouth quality, and when slowly cooked, are rendered fall-off-the-bone tender. Sourced from one of the world’s premier gourmet meat and exotic game providers, Broadleaf, provides our luxurious New Zealand raised lamb shanks.
Besides being positively scrumptious, lamb is also a nutritional powerhouse, delivering no less than twenty-five grams of protein in a single 3-ounce serving! Along with that, you’ll also find high levels of magnesium, potassium, selenium, and healthy fats like Omega-3s on the list of added benefits accrued through making lamb a regular part of your diet.
Where the hind shanks are sometimes preferred for their larger size, they tend to be too much for one person. Conversely, the fore shanks are more suited for single-serve dining, providing the perfect amount for one. While shanks are a tough cut, thanks to a lifetime of regular use, they are also full of bold meaty flavor. To capitalize on all of the shank’s excellent qualities, prepare this cut using low, slow, moist, methods of cooking, like braising.
Sourced from free-range grass-fed New Zealand raised sheep, these animals are never given any antibiotics, hormones, or additives of any kind. Maturing in the most natural way possible and subsisting on a diet of native grasses and flora, our premium sheep from Broadleaf boast exceptional flavor and a tender, fine grain that sets them apart from more generic options. Masterfully butchered and broken-down, each shank is painstakingly prepared, and the thin membrane that graces all lamb shanks is carefully removed from our premium foreshanks prior to packaging, so all the prep work for this flavorful cut is already done for you!
