jOINT WAS COOKED LONG AND SLOW AND WAS STILL VERY TOUGH TO EAT. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!! spoilt our Easter dinner.
Not good value
It was a knuckle end and cost me about £7. There was not enough meat on it to feet the 3 of us. Mostly bone.
Too fatty, even for shoulder.
I know shoulder has more fat than leg, but this was ridiculous. About 2/3 the joint was solid fat! The dogs thought it was Christmas.
It is lamb shoulder!
It was as expected a lamb shoulder joint. It is a fattier cut than the leg and requires different cooking technique. It is the juiciest and most flavoursome part of a sheep including neck and all fore quarter belly etc. Know your cut and cook accordingly.
Just what it should have been...
This bone-in lamb shoulder was just how it should have been - yes it has fat, and a bone - this is the nature of this particular cut - it is a cheap cut for these reasons. Properly cooked it is tender and delicious and versatile. Can only think the various negative reviews came from folk who don't know about the various meat cuts available. If you're looking for a non fatty cut, choose leg. I wholeheartedly recommend this product.
Nice but as supplied too big and expensive for me.
Lovely meat BUT ordered .5kg rec'd .94kg and nearly double the price. I live alone and on a tight budget. I don't really want to eat lamb 3 days a week. Complained and compensated, thank you.
We found this joint of lamb very gristly and fatty
We found this joint of lamb very gristly and fatty, did not enjoy at all, will not be buying again, sorry.
Poor value for money not a family meal
Bought this for New Year was sent as a substitute for leg of lamb thought I would keep it ; said fed 4 people was lucky to scape off enough for 2 people. The meat was grissly and tough and impossible to carve any decent slices lots of small scaps. Poor value will stick to leg next time.
Excellent value and tastes superb. Not overly fatt
Excellent value and tastes superb. Not overly fatty at all and easily does 4 servings. Well done Tesco!
