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.
