Saddle of Lamb



A Saddle of Lamb is both sides of the lamb loin, with backbone still attached joining them together.

It comes in about 6 1/2 pound (3 kg) sizes including bone. There is, however, not as much meat as it looks like, as there is a lot of bone, but it does include the tenderloin and the eye muscle.

It is a large, expensive, cut and lamb and looks fantastic, but needs a good carving person to do it justice.

The cut can be divided into two by the butcher: the front half, called the foresaddle, up to the 12th rib, and the hindsaddle, the back part, from the 13th rib back.

A Long Fore Saddle cut includes the shoulder.

A Long Hind Saddle cut includes the legs.

You can also buy them boned, rolled and tied.

Bon mots

"In the United States all business not transacted over the telephone is accomplished in conjunction with alcohol or food, often under conditions of advanced intoxication. This is a fact of the utmost importance for the visitor of limited funds...for it means that the most expensive restaurants are, with rare exceptions, the worst."

-- John Kenneth Galbraith (American economist. 15 October 1908 – 29 April 2006)
