Thrifty Lamb Henry Steaks

Premium quality slow-grown Lamb is never going to be cheap - but this rarely-found Cut is a great new Thrifty Cuts addition  

Thick-cut, bone-in Steaks taken from the centre of the Leg. Ideally grilled to pink, Lamb Henry Steaks make a simple but effective alternative to regular Lamb Cuts - or even a Beef Steak.


There is some confusion what Lamb Henrys actually are - but basically a Lamb Henry is a roasting joint taken from the Shoulder - whilst the Lamb Henry Steak is taken from the Leg 

Thrifty Cut

Lamb Henry Steaks - also known in France as Lamb Gigot Steaks - benefit from the fact that you can slice quite a few Steaks off the Leg as opposed to something like the very popular Shins where you can only get four off a carcass - making them such a Lamb Thrifty Cut

Rich and intense Lamb flavour

Cut from our own Free Range slow-grown Lambs, Lamb Henry Steaks yield a unique taste for any lover of Lamb and make a delicious, quick and easy meal - yielding a rich taste and an intense Lamb flavour

Relax into tenderness

Dry-Aging in our own state of the art Maturation Rooms enables the grain of the meat to relax into tenderness, then to darken, and to finally lose excess moisture - resulting in more concentrated flavours and textures

Those in the know

The taste is pure Lamb, as delectable as a Lamb Chop, yet there's very little fat and only a small round of bone (with a delicious nugget of melting Marrow for those in the know).

Though it's usually thought of as a Cut for quick cooking, it also lends itself to braising. When pan-fried or grilled 2 or 3 minutes a side, it emerges rare, tender, juicy and flavourful. 

A terrific flavour

Because these Steaks come from one of the leaner parts of the animal, and from a muscle that has had to do a fair amount of work - if not slow-grown and expertly Dry -Aged - Lamb Henry Steaks have a tendency to be a little tough. 

But if well husbanded and not overcooked - and importantly - rested before serving - Lamb Henry Steaks reward with a terrific flavour.

Perfect for a Thrifty individual meal, as well as a cosy meal à deux - or for a low cost traditional full family meal or dinner party

Also great on the Barbecue
