Two shanks, 2-3lb total — our favorite braising cut — Tunis


Two Shanks, 2-3lb total

The shanks are an especially earthy cut, and incredibly delectable when roasted low and slow, or braised until the meat falls off the bone — and of course the bone itself provides a gorgeous depth of flavor and silkiness to soups and stews. We think the shanks are some of the most underrated cuts in the butcher’s case, and make for some of the most comforting and tasty meals imaginable.

We bring in whole lamb nose-to-tail 4-5 times a year. Lamb is seasonal meat so we bring it in when its ready in the spring and fall. All our lamb is raised on lush pastures by farmers we have worked with for over a decade.

  • 100% Heritage breeds raised on pasture and 100% antibiotic free
  • Raised by Ben Machin and Grace Bowmer of Tamarack Sheep Farm in Vermont
  • Heritage lamb has tremendous marbling resulting in a more tender, exquisite, and juicy meat
