This is the filet of the shoulder also known as the eye of shoulder. A totally underrated cut - a cut that deserves more attention for the tenderness and flavor it provides. Shoulder filets are boneless, extremely versatile, surprisingly tender and come with rich marbling. Cooked right these will give you and your guests a gorgeous and memorable lamb experience. You get 4 small filet pieces, giving you a total of 1kg (2.2lbs). Due to the marbling, the meat turns very tender. You can use this cut for stews and cook low and slow - they will melt in your mouth. In fact, these filet cuts are so tender you can prepare them as oven roasts or even as steaks - check out the way we have prepared them in the images. By the way, these are so great they even excel on the grill. Highly recommended. See the video and images below.
New Zealand lamb is internationally known for its superior quality and taste. Our New Zealand lamb takes it one step further: All year free-range open pasture-raised, grass-fed lambs. Free of growth-promoting hormones and subtherapeutic use of antibiotics. This is the finest lamb available. If you have never tried lamb or had a bad experience with lamb in the past we urge you to give New Zealand premium quality lamb a try. However, lamb shoulder is probably not what you want to begin with if you are new to lamb. Our lamb comes from family-owned and operated farms and ranches in New Zealand only. Ethical raising has always been the cultural tradition in New Zealand.

Lamb shoulder filets are extremely versatile. If you are planning to cook them in the fry-pan you need to do that slow and low. Treat them as steaks.
We have cooked the filets for about 20 minutes on very low heat and kept turning them without a lid. If you use a lid you can accelerate the process. However, make sure to sear the outside again to yield a crispy, flavorful and caramelized surface.
Once the core temperature has reached 53 degrees Celsius (130 degrees Fahrenheit) take the lamb filets off the heat and let them rest and continue cooking on residual heat for 5 minutes.
Use a large and sharp knife and cut against the grain into bite-sized pieces. Crunchy and flavorful outside with extremely tender core cooked to medium-rare. This is pure fine-dining at home. Avoid sauces and further seasoning. Enjoy quality lamb. Simply amazing.
Translated from Japanese: These shoulder filets are really delicious. I roasted it and added harissa paste, but even with no seasoning, the roasting removes the water and salty taste, so that’s enough to make it delicious. The meat quality is good. Delivery is faster than other companies'. It’s convenient.
Translated from Japanese: I’m on a low-carb diet, so I’m focusing on fat and protein. Therefore, meat is indispensable as a high-quality protein source, but processed meat has a problem of carcinogenic additives, so I bought unprocessed meat to give it a try because I thought that grass-fed meat was safe. I sliced it, added salt and pepper and made a steak. It was delicious because it had less fat. I didn't intend to buy it again if it wasn't delicious, but I'm likely to order regularly. By the way, I try to take in fat by using MCT oil.
Translated from Japanese: I simply seasoned this lamb meat with salt and herbs and cooked the surface in a frying pan until it was lightly roasted. Lamb meat is rich in nutrition, this one has no odor, is delicious and easy to eat, so I buy it regularly. Everyone in my family loves it and is looking forward to it every time.
Translated from Japanese: It has no odor, is very soft and lighter than beef. And it’s easy to eat. I will finish up 850g with my son.
Translated from Japanese: I thawed it, grilled it with rosemary, sea salt and pepper, and ate it with homemade mashed potatoes, which was very delicious. I’m glad that one filet is big.
