Slow cook lamb shoulder...
I've been buying Tescos Shoulder for sometime now, and I haven't been disappointed..The only way to cook it is on a low heat and a min of 4 hours, that way it is sweet and juicy.
Sunday lunch perfection.
Tasty, soft, lean meat and no wastage as the joint had been very well trimmed. As always with shoulder, it needs long, slow cooking with some liquid (3-4 hours - use any reputable recipe or follow the "pulled shoulder" idea on the label). It will fall apart, don't expect to be able to carve neat, thin slices! 1.45kg joint was more than enough for 5 generous servings.
Fatty shocker, missing the meat.
We cooked this lamb today from two orders ago. Virtually inedible, 80% fat, 20% meat, absolutely horrible. We cooked it as normal but managed to carve less than 2 portions of meat from the fatfest. This is a shocker.
This was the worst piece of meat I have ever had from Tesco, full of gristle and not much meat. Unfortunately I had guests to Sunday lunch.
Why can’t we get whole shoulder in NewcastleOnTyne
I can’t get a whole shoulder from my nearest store but it is available in other areas in the country. Why? 🤬
Must be cooked long and slow
Very tasty cut of lamb. Cooked in the slow cooker for 6hrs with garlic Rosemary and red wine. Made a very special Valentine’s Day meal.
Lovely slow cooked roast.
Such a lovely tasty joint for our Sunday lunch. I slow cooked it in my creuset pot with some red wine and rosemary for 3.5 ish hours on 150C. Was so tender and very tasty. Definitely buy this again.
Slow cooked to perfection but quite small
We purchased this to make shawarma lamb kebabs as a starter for valentines day. Slow cooked on 160 for 3 hours. Removed, basted again and put back in the oven. After 30 minutes remove foil and cook for a further 30 minutes. Melt in the mouth. A tad fatty and must have been a small sheep but would definitely purchase again. A new family favourite, cooked by a novice. Or so he tells me!!
Moist and delicious.
Just bought our first of these, and it was lovely! We used to have these a lot when I was a child, but this is my first time cooking one. Moist, tender and delicious (cooked slowly, and in a beef stock with garlic, rosemary and oregano on a bed of onions, potatoes and sweet potatoes). Will certainly do these again.
Mainly bone and fat
Very poor value. What little meat I could find was reasonably tender but there just wasn't enough of it for the price paid. Also the cooking time printed on the pack was almost an hour more than was needed.
