Very tasty

5 stars

I’ve only ordered this once but I shall order it again. It’s full of flavour and not overly fatty, the bone weighs very little so a good helping for three people.

Disappointing very little meat

3 stars

Disappointing very little meat

Lean, succulent & tasty

5 stars

Lean, succulent and tasty...slow-cooked for about 3 hours (190c dropped to 160c and covered). And rested of course before carving. Leftovers used for a delicious Moroccan Lamb dish with vegetable couscous! I frequently buy this cut from Tesco and we haven’t been disappointed yet.

This joint gave us 'the cold shoulder'

1 stars

We have enjoyed this joint before. For 2 senior adults it can last for three meals; 1) roasted 2) cold 3) in a shepherds pie. Two weeks ago when cooked there was barely enough for the first meal. Joint was very fatty and mostly a blade bone.Very disappointing. Shall be wary about ordering again.

2hrs to pressure cook

2 stars

I pressure cooked this shoulder of lamb for 2hrs before it was soft. Wow! I expected to have to pressure cook it for an hour, but not 2hrs. It was lovely and soft after that, but if I was cooking it without the pressure cooker, I would have had to cook this for six hours or something lol. So I recommend you cook it in the pressure cooker if you buy this.

wonderful tasting, but as to be cooked right,

5 stars

lovely joint the shank end, but please could you send me the blade end, what we prefer, we enjoy all Tescos meat it is wonderful, well done,

More fat than meat - awful product

1 stars

This product was received as a substitute. The majority of this product went in the bin as it there was so much fat. I would safely say more than 60% of this was nothing more than fat. What remained edible just about fed 3 children. Terrible product!

Beautiful English Lamb Half Shoulder

5 stars

This was English shoulder. I cooked it slow for 3 hours. It was delicious. I followed the recipe from the Scotch Kitchen. Perfect. Thank you, Tesco.

Disappointing, tasteless and tough

1 stars

Followed all the cooking instructions but end result was very disappointing. The joint we had delivered was tasteless and tough.

Lamb, new potatoes, homemade mint sauce - a treat

5 stars

I thought the roast lamb was delicious.
