This product cooked up beautifully and was tender and delicious.
What to do with all of the extra horseradish leftover from the seder? Eat it on matzah with this lamb shoulder!!! This cut has a great balance of meat and fat -- after slow roasting for 6 hours -- I shredded and served. YUM!!!
I covered this roast in store bought shawarma seasoning and then slow roasted in the oven. When it was ready, I shredded the meat with some forks. It was so good that my family demanded that it be added to our regular rotation.
The lamb was delicious but after cleaning it and roasting it, I lost almost half of the raw weight in fat and bone. I ended up with about 4 portions of meat. I often buy lamb shoulder on the bone from my regular butcher and this has never happened. The lamb, however was delicious!
Packs & Weights
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packs. Most packs contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packs will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packs of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
These vacuum-sealed packs are generally packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packs you'd like in the box, you'll make that choice under "Number of Packs". Then you'll choose the total weight of the box (that is, the combined weight of all the the packs in that box).
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packs, ~1.9lbs, and the price shows as $60.78.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packs of lamb chops inside. The whole thing will weigh approximately ~1.9lbs and will cost $60.78.
Each pack will contain 2 lamb chops, and weigh approximately .95lbs.
You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. Each will weigh approximately .475lbs (note that one may be slightly larger and one slightly smaller).
Weight Ranges & Prices
To keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable, products with variable weights are sold in a weight range (this includes most frozen meats, with the exception of deli meats, sausages and beef jerky). We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. If a price/lb is shown with a *, it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with each weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the weight ranges for all our products:
|less than 0.99lb||0.05lb|
