Translated from Japanese: I bought various types of lamb here and I bought the shoulder fillet for the first time because I was always happy with the quality.
I cooked it on a rare grill and I was surprised at the sweetness of the meat, not to mention that it had no odor.
I will buy it again, so thank you!

Happiness, good quality, protein

Translated from Japanese: Ah, I’m happy. NZ Lamb is the best. Hokkaido, work hard. The meat is very soft, but not greasy (you can scrape off the fat if you like) but juicy & tender. Good quality protein (1kg!). When I tried to stir-fry spices and herbs, the soup stock came out from the vegetables and lamb, kind of turned into a stew. What a delicious taste even though I didn’t use any salt! … No salt is needed, it's delicious enough as it is. According to a NZ aunt who lives in Australia, the price is about 1/3 locally, but I’m satisfied with the rare lamb and price I could get in Japan, which came all the way from NZ. I think I can make my body healthy with this.

Soft and delicious lamb meat

Translated from Japanese: It was tender and delicious lamb meat.
The price is also satisfactory.
If possible, instead of packing them together, it would be easier to cook if they were packed separately.

This is my favorite lamb meat

Translated from Japanese: I seasoned it with salt and pepper and herbs and ate it like a steak. It was delicious and had no odor at all. I heard that lamb meat is richer in iron and vitamins, so in the future I wanted to eat it more than beef. I also like the fact that it contains four pieces of meat, 250g each, so it's easier to cook than the ones in the big blocks.

Soft and delicious

Translated from Japanese: Since the amount was large, I ate steak the first time and stewed it with red wine the second time. It was soft, had no odor, and was very tasty. Seasoning with salt and pepper is sufficient. The lamb meat here was very easy to handle and I felt like it was as delicious as or even better than the ones you get at restaurants, so I felt that the quality of the ingredients was the most important thing.

New Zealand Free-Range Lamb Shoulder Filets (1kg)

Horizon Farms
LB247

Description

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, each around 250g (8.8oz) 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 Filet Recipe Instructions

New Zealand Lamb Neck Filet / Fillet

Completely defrost the whole pack in the fridge overnight or in cold water for approximately 3h. Drain any liquids and pat dry with a paper towel. Allow the meat to breathe and come to room temperature. The whole pack contains 4 pieces, we're showing 2 shoulders filets in the images. 

New Zealand Lamb Neck Filet / Fillet

Season with freshly ground black pepper, sea salt, and garlic powder. That's it!

New Zealand Lamb Neck Filet / Fillet

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. 

New Zealand Lamb Neck Filet / Fillet

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.

New Zealand Lamb Neck Filet / Fillet

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.

New Zealand Lamb Neck Filet / Fillet

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.

My body is healed

Translated from Japanese: I bought it to make bone broth soup as a treatment for leaky gut.
While cooking, I was surprised that it didn't smell at all.
I also simmered chicken wings together with it.
The finished soup had no odor, was light and it felt like it soaked into my body.
Looking at the philosophy of this ranch and the pictures of the grazing scenery, I thought that I should thank the chickens for their lives again and for those who are involved in this.
Thank you.

I made a delicious soup

I have a feeling that this will become a standard for celebrations!

Translated from Japanese: Even though the taste is strong, the fat is really delicious!!!
When eating this store’s chicken breast, I realized there’s a difference to usual chicken and because a family member’s birthday is near, I’ve decided to order this whole chicken.
I cooked it the same as always, but the meat quality is completely different!
The whole family is a total fan of this taste and aroma. Thank you (^^)

I made Samgyetang with it

Translated from Japanese: Although I have bought several types of chicken here already, it’s my first time trying this whole chicken.
To prepare it carefully, I washed it, but even so, there was no fat or blood on the chicken.
It was the same with the other chicken products I already tried, but there was also not the characteristic (strong) smell of chicken.

Because it’s hard to know the chicken’s life from the packs that you can find in the supermarket, I could finally feel with this product that the chicken’s life was spent preciously. I’m thankful I’m able to enjoy this chicken meat and won’t waste a bite, as one shouldn’t forget this animal once had a precious life, too.
Although I boiled it for 1½ hours, the meat didn’t get dry, the fat sticking to the meat had no unpleasant smell and I got a soup with a golden color.

I order all the meat I need from this store, I’ve come to not like any other ones.
Although I eat a lot less meat now, I have not become a vegetarian or vegan yet, so I think I want to not forget to at least be thankful for the meal this chicken gave me.

I’m sorry for this long comment.
I will order again.

I tried a whole chicken for the first time.

Translated from Japanese: Preciously raised chickens packaged carefully (for delivery) arrived in the best condition possible.
I grilled it with natural salt and thyme from my garden. It was really delicious, a complete success. Even cooled down packed inside a bento, there is no unpleasant smell.

Thank you HORIZON FARMS!! (。◕ˇДˇ◕。)/

Translated from Japanese: With this product, I made roast chicken for the first time.
I marinated it for 1 hour with salt and pepper and rosemary. After filling the chicken with garlic, I baked it thoroughly in the oven.
My daughter was so happy! “This is incredibly delicious!!!” She said.
I know that if you defrost this store’s chicken, you have to process it cleanly.
Inside a vacuum pack, the quality also remains the same.
It was really delicious meat.
More than the smell, the taste was rich in flavor.
It was amazing!!!
My daughter has a pesticide and antibiotics allergy.
For that reason, we bought the most expensive organic chicken meat we could find in a supermarket to cook with it.
But the quality of the oil of the top-grade supermarket chicken and this store’s chicken is different!
Even if you eat a lot, your stomach doesn’t feel heavy.
Surprisingly, it was even a pleasure to clean the plates and the oven.
I want to film myself cleaning and show everyone.

Really delicious

Translated from Japanese: I made a simple soup with green onions, radish and these oxtails.
The seasoning I used was only salt, pepper and soy sauce and when I slowly simmered it, it connected with the flavor of the vegetables and turned very delicious.
The price is high and it's a shame that we have to compromise with the price because it's grass-fed.

I made bone broth

Translated from Japanese: It was easy to cook even for the first time, and I made a very rich and delicious soup. I boiled it for half a day, so it was easy to remove the meat from the bones and easy to eat. I want to buy it again.

I’m suffering from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity

Translated from Japanese: I'm suffering from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (CS), so I searched for safe meat that was drug-free and wasn't fed with strange foods. Sheep are said to be nutritious, but I can't find them in Japan, so I bought them in bulk up to the free shipping line, although it's a little expensive. I forcibly thawed and cooked it on the day I arrived, so it was still hard even if I used a pressure cooker, but it was delicious. I made tomato stew with it. The meat has a mellow lamb scent. Bone marrow is the best. The fat had a gummy-like feeling. I used to eat Genghis Khan, which only tasted like sauce, so I was satisfied with the lamb-taste spreading in my mouth. I'm looking forward to trying the other meats.

Translated from Japanese: I haven’t been able to eat in a restaurant because of corona, so I wanted to have something that is just as delicious, even if made at home. My family likes lamb, so I searched for lamb shanks. It was my first time buying here, but I was very satisfied. It was my first time seeing raw lamb shank, but it was very beautiful and my impression after eating was that it’s tender and delicious with no odor. For those who want to give this a try, if you have a pressure cooker, wine and rosemary, it will be delicious. I recommend it. Next weekend, I gave the recipe on the website a try and my family loved it.
