Super thick yaki niku slices from the shoulder of lamb. Cut from the most tender part of the shoulder only - the eye of the shoulder also known as the neck filet or shoulder filet. Well-marbled, incredibly juicy, and full of rich flavor. You will be pleasantly surprised. If you have not had a chance to try good lamb, give this a try. Please do not use any sauce or strong spices that cover up the authentic taste of lamb. Try this with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper for the best experience. Each pack contains around 12 thick slices. You get 300g (10.5 oz) per pack. Each slice is precisely cut at 10mm (just over 3/8").

Translated from Japanese: I grilled it in olive oil with only salt and pepper. I grilled onions, king trumpet mushrooms, and zucchini, after finishing grilling the meat which also soaked up the juices from the lamb and made everything nicely salty. It’s a really delicious meat.
Translated from Japanese: I put it in curry.
The meat was tender and delicious.
Translated from Japanese: There’s no odor and it’s delicious. My husband repeatedly said it’s the best meat he has ever had in his whole life! Haha
Translated from Japanese: It's soft, juicy and really delicious.
After grilling it in a frying pan on open flame with only salt, it was so delicious that even my 80-year-old mother could enjoy it.
Translated from Japanese: I only cooked it with salt, pepper and garlic and it was very delicious.
