A 170g (6oz) small lamb boneless striploin steak cut from the short loin. As to expect from a striploin, the cut is incredibly tender and full of juiciness and heavenly flavor. If you like lamb chops you will love lamb striploin. This cut deserves more attention - Striploins are best served and treated as steaks. Therefore they are best prepared and cooked very slowly in the fry-pan or on the grill over indirect heat. Please note the striploin comes with the silverskin attached, please remove it as shown in the instructions below. Do not season excessively - high-quality lamb does not come with gamey flavor or odors. All you need is salt, pepper, garlic powder and olive oil. See the instructions and videos 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.

Defrost in the fridge for about 1 day or in cold water for approximately 2 hours. Once completely defrosted, use a sharp knife to remove the tough silverskin found atop the steaks (see right steak in the picture). Try not to trim off too much meat and keep the knife close to the silverskin.
Once trimmed they should look like the steaks in the image. Now all you need is to lightly season them.
We say it again, high-quality lamb does not require excessive seasoning in order to "cover-up" a gamey taste. Use coarse sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, and garlic powder. We recommend garlic powder instead of fresh garlic because it sticks better to meat and provides a milder, desirable garlic flavor. Don't forget to rub with olive oil.
Lamb striploin comes with a high red meat to fat ratio, therefore they need to be cooked very carefully and slowly.
Keep turning the steaks and make sure every side is cooked evenly. Again, cook slowly on low flame. There is no need to sear this petite steak.
Take the steaks off the heat once the core temperature reaches 50 degrees Celsius (125 degrees Fahrenheit) and let them rest for 5 minutes.
Slice evenly into thick slices. For the love of the lamb gods, please do not use sauces or additional seasoning. Eat as is while warm to the touch.
Unbelievably tender and juicy. A typical striploin meat texture with a mild gourmet lamb flavor (tastes absolutely like lamb chops but without bones and fat).
Enjoy high-quality lamb. Guaranteed to leave a positive lasting experience and change the mindset about lamb meat.
Well worth the money. Re ordering ASAP!
Translated from Japanese: It was beautiful meat as shown in the product image. The flavor of lamb is rich. It’s low in fat, has no odor, and is delicious enough so you can eat as much as you want. I recommend it to those who like lean meat and lamb. There were 4 pieces, so I made 3 steaks and used 1 for curry. Both were very delicious.
