About this cut
A classic cut in French cooking, this bone-in kosher lamb roast is perfect for slow cooking -- either by braising, roasting at low, dry heat; or smoking for 18-24 hours for a real treat. After cooking, the tender, flavorful lamb meat can be pulled, or sliced off the bone.
We raise our lamb on pasture and brush in the Shenandoah Valley, where they are free to roam and graze as they please. You'll notice a rich lamby flavor that is fresh, inviting and intriguing -- never overly muttony or too "strong". Their diet includes all the lushness of the countryside, along with a small amount of grain at finishing; our animals are never fed hormones, antibiotics or animal by-products. This is the tastiest kosher lamb you will find around and we are very proud to bring this delicious meat to your table.
Basic Cooking Technique
Braise, smoke, or roast low and slow.
Products are packed with coolant during their journey to ensure they arrive in great shape. Meats will arrive frozen or refrigerated. Most of our products are shipped frozen; occasionally, due to a very quick turnaround between when the meats arrive at our freezing and distribution facility and when they are delivered to you, meats may be shipped fresh. Meat that is cold to the touch can be refrigerated for immediate use, or frozen for later use. Learn more.

This was absolutely delicious. Easy to cook - mostly hands off - and the perfect balance of fat to meat. If you love lamb you have to try this!!
Smoked it for about 6 hours and then finished it with wine and veggies wrapped for another 3 hours
Dry-rubbed this giant joint and refrigerated for an afternoon, then very-slow-roasted it over Thursday night, carved, and reheated for an amazing shabbat dinner with a big red wine. (I have also now a pint of highly seasoned lamb fat, auto-rendered in the roasting pan, stored in the freezer for some future use. ) Will definitely buy again.
ive made this many times and the quality and flavor were the best! it literally fell off the bone!
Tender and delicious not too salty perfect
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!
How Many Pieces Will I Receive?
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packages. Most packages contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packages will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packages of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
For red meat items and multi-pack poultry items, vacuum-sealed packages may be packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packages you'd like in the box, you'll make that selection under "Customize Your Order." Then you'll choose your preferred weight (that is, the combined weight of all the the packages in that box.) If only one choice is showing in a green box, you do not need to make any selection.
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packages, ~1.1 lb, and the price shows $39.99.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packages of lamb chops inside.
Each package will contain 2 lamb chops. You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. We always try to pack similar-sized items, but you may find that some chops are slightly larger and some are slightly smaller.
How Much Does It Weigh?
We use weight ranges in order to keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable for items with variable weights (for example steaks. Packages of deli meats which are not sold by weight range as we can pack them by exact weight). The ranges are as small as practically possible to minimize the variation between the Selected Weight and the actual weght you receive. Because of this, if the price per pound is shown as "price/lb*", the *" indicates that it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with the selected weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the potential weight variance for selected weights on our site:
|Selected Weight||Potential Weight Variance|
|under ~0.95 lb||+/- 0.05 lb|
|~1 lb to ~2.1 lb||+/- 0.1 lb|
|~2.2 lb to ~2.7 lb||+/- 0.3 lb|
|~2.9 lb to ~10 lb||+/- 0.25 lb|
|~10.5 lb to ~19.5 lb||+/- 0.5 lb|
|over ~20 lb||+/- 1 lb|
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~1.5 lb could weigh as much as 1.6 lb or as little as 1.4 lb
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~3 lb could weigh as much as 3.25 lb or as little as 2.75 lb
We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. Sometimes you will receive a bit more than the listed weight, and sometimes a bit less. Our customers find that on average they receive what they are expecting. But if you find that your actual weights in an order are all below the listed average, please snap a picture of the weight labels and send it over to us, and we'll be happy to make things right.
