Where do I leave a review?
Thank you very much for your support. Every product page has a 'Leave a Review' section at the very bottom. Please feel free to leave an honest review.

Are your products Halal or Kosher certified?
We do not specifically carry or import halal or kosher products. Some items are labeled as kosher or halal by default from the country of origin.

Until what temperature can I sous vide the meat in their own packaging?
Our packaging is sous-vide ready (the process of cooking meat in their packaging in hot water for a prolonged time) for water temperatures up to 95°C (200°F). We do not recommend temperatures close to the boiling point but temperatures around 60°C (140°F) with a cooking period between 45 minutes and 3 hours, depending on the type and thickness of the meat.

A pair of lamb shanks with a total weight of 600g (1.3lbs). These are best prepared in a slow-cooking method only. Cooked long enough in a slow cooker or pressure cooker, the meat will become fork-tender and literally fall off the bone. Lamb shanks are a great (economical) alternative to popular lamb cuts such as lamb chops or striploin - lamb shanks are full of rich flavor and juiciness, nonetheless! There is no need to further trim or cut the shanks. Simply season with sea salt and pepper,   prepare in a pressure cooker for 1 hour or in a slow cooker over a period of at least 8 hours - this should be long enough to make the meat fork-tender. Serve with mashed potatoes, green peas, or a slow-cooked vegetable mix. 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.

Lamb Shanks Recipe Instructions

 New Zealand Lamb Shank

Defrost in the fridge for 48 hours. Once defrosted remove from the packaging and leave at room temperature for about 10 minutes. Pat try with a paper towel.

New Zealand Lamb Shank

The shanks come ready for cooking and do not need any further trimming. You do not need to expose the bone as the meat will shrink throughout the cooking process and naturally expose the bone for a great visual. Simply season with sea salt, freshly ground pepper, paprika powder, and onion powder.

New Zealand Lamb Shank

 Layer with olive oil and rub well. Let it marinate for a couple of minutes.

In the meanwhile prepare the vegetables to cook with. Potatoes, onions, carrots, and paprika are classics. We're using a high-pressure cooker in our instructions. Chickpeas or green peas are popular as well, use when at hand.

New Zealand Lamb Shanks

Place the shanks first at the bottom of the slow cooker or pressure cooker. 

New Zealand Lamb Shanks

Add two cans of diced tomatoes, vegetables, olive oil, and spices such as oregano, thyme, basil leaves, freshly ground pepper, and sea salt. 

New Zealand Lamb Shanks

Make sure the seasoning reaches around and in between the two lamb shanks.

Depending on your device you will need to adjust the time between 40 minutes and 1 hour for a pressure cooker and 8 hours for a slow cooker. Don't worry about overcooking the meat.

The result is fork-tender meat, literally falling off the bone. The vegetables and the tomato seasoning keeps the lamb meat moist and tender throughout the process.

The meat can be easily taken off the bone with two forks. Look at the juiciness of that piece.

New Zealand Lamb Shanks

Usually, the lamb shank is served as a whole as in one shank per person. If you are sharing with the family we recommend shredding the meat and serve individually. Grass-fed, free-range lamb meat from New Zealand. Enjoy!

They are perfect. I have repeatedly been ordering. I use a slow-cooking pot which only takes 4 hours to cook it. Besides vegetables and dry herbs such as Origano and Bay leaves, adding dried split peas will significantly enhance the UMAMI!

Easy and delicious

This is great Lamb shanks for the slow cooker, especially for cold season!

Translated from Japanese: I purchase here on a regular basis.
I’m very happy that this meat can be cooked with a peace of mind up to the bones and nothing is wasted.
(Lamb bones are a treat for my dog!)
It smells like a plant, so I wondered if it’s because it pasture-raised. I was surprised that safe meat that is from animals that were fed good food and that doesn’t contain any medicine has a different aroma!
I’d like to continue ordering here.

When simmered, it becomes soft

Translated from Japanese: I simmered it in a pressure cooker. When simmered, it becomes soft and comes off the bones easily. It also contains a lot of fat, so the oil floats in the soup and hardens when cooled down.

Is it a little different from the previous ones?

Translated from Japanese: This lamb shank, which I usually stew and has plenty of umami, had a black water-absorbing sheet this time, so I wonder if the vendor is different from before? It's a pity that the taste is a little poorer, too.
