Translated from Japanese: I cooked one in the oven and put the other in a stew. The result is odorless, soft and delicious.

Translated from Japanese: This is my second time ordering. It was as delicious as last time, but this time it had a long bone and barely fit in the pressure cooker. 😅
It's like the meat in the old-fashioned anime Gyātoruzu. It's very satisfying to eat. I’d like to order again.

Translated from Japanese: I stewed it in wine inside a pressure cooker. The meat is beautiful and the taste is very good! Speaking of treats in NZ, as I was eating this meat, I was happy that I could order and cook it so easily. I’d like to order 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: The delivery was quick and the meat was better than I had imagined! It's safe and secure and I think this price is a good deal. I will order again.

New Zealand Grass-Fed Free-Range Lamb Shanks (800g)

Horizon Farms
LB283

A pair of lamb shanks each weighing 400g (14oz). 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.

New Zealand Lamb Shanks

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.

New Zealand Lamb Shanks

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.

New Zealand Lamb Shanks

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!

Not suitable for mizutaki

Translated from Japanese: I bought this whole chicken because I wanted to get soup stock out of the bones. I don't know how to cook many dishes, so I chose my favorite mizutaki.
Since the breeding period is long, I expected it to be old, but the taste is refreshing and the body is soft.
But hmm (tears)
I took the lye out carefully, but the unique taste and smell are spicy. Japanese chicken is very delicious with only salt, but this was not possible. You can't add garlic, onions or tomatoes. I managed to eat it with curry spice.
I should have followed the recommended recipe.
I want to eat naturally grazing chicken, so I will study how to cook it and try again.

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.

Translated from Japanese: I always buy Australian products when I want to make bone broth and this is my first time trying Austrian products. The 500g size is also small and easy to handle and I felt that there was a strong tendency for it to become gelatinous (collagen?) when the bone broth is refrigerated. As for the taste, both are perfectly delicious.

I buy it every time

Translated from Japanese: I cook this oxtail and meat guy's beef tendon for 12 hours to make curry.
Does it take so long because it’s grain-finished? I'm grateful that you can get grass-fed meat at this price.
The meat also comes off smoothly.

Bone broth soup with plenty of collagen

Translated from Japanese: This is my favorite taste of bone broth soup.
If you pay attention to the water and oxtail added, collagen will come out and it will become plump after boiling for a long time. It's possible to freeze the soup stock.

For oxtail soup

Translated from Japanese: I always buy it to make tail soup. Domestic Wagyu beef has a lot of oil, but this one has a moderate amount of oil and is delicious as it is without any preparation.

Translated from Japanese: I bought these to make bone broth easily and they were better than I expected.
Preparing the meat beforehand is recommended because it can be finished deliciously with salt and pepper without any odor by removing the lye only once.
It was delicious even with oatmeal and risotto.

I came to like liver

Translated from Japanese: I ate lamb liver for the first time. It was delicious and impressive and I fell in love with liver. In addition, I would like to order it and make it a dietary habit to eliminate iron deficiency.

J
J.

Translated from Japanese: I have ordered several times
Lamb meat is good for the body, so my Bulldog is also enjoying this luxurious meat
His fur has gotten soft.
If you overcook it, it will harden, so easily turn it around on the heat
To eat in medium rare, turn off the heat of the frying pan.
After 1 minute, turn it over and if the blood oozes, you have to eat it.
I don't think you can eat it deliciously.

Translated from Japanese: I was looking forward to seeing lamb liver as it is not on the market.
I like lamb meat, so if you don't like it, you probably don't like that unique smell and flavor.
I was surprised because there is no unpleasant smell in this part
I like the distinctive flavor
The notable point is that the heat passes quickly.
It's not delicious unless you eat it medium rare, so cooking it with oil in a frying pan.
Cook it at high heat and turn it around often,
Even 30 seconds is enough on one side.
And when cooked at high heat again, blood oozes out.
Cooking time: Grill it quickly, otherwise it will look mushy.

Translated from Japanese: Thank you for the very rare high quality liver. It's really great because it's not sold anywhere else.
