How to carve a leg of lamb 

1. Take 2 – 3 slices from the thin side of the leg of lamb
2. Starting at the knuckle, cut out a large wedge (this will make carving easier)
3. Carefully carve thick or thin slices down the length of the leg going right through to the bone.
4. Take your knife and run it down on top of the bone to release the slices and place them on a plate.

Top tips

Economical cuts like pork shoulder are excellent in the slow-cooker, as they become tender the longer you cook them. Pulled pork is a true family favourite – delicious in a ragu, sliders, tacos, burgers, or nachos. 

Did you know that some pork cuts are healthier than others? The tenderloin (fillet) and cutlet naturally have a lower fat content and are well suited to a quick sear in the pan or fry on the barbecue. 

Good pork cuts for cooking:

Shoulder chop: Chops cut frim the shoulder are a bit fattier than the loin so crisp up nicely (though the fat can be easily trimmed). Chops are great marinated and grilled or pan fried, and can also work well in slow cooking such as braising. 

Diced: Ready diced pork is a low-fat, tasty cut which can be used in everything from stir-fries or curry, to you favourite slow cooked recipe.

    Top tips - beef

  • Eating vitamin C rich food, like tomatoes or lots of veggie with red meat will help increase the amount of iron your body absorbs 3/4 of your plate should consist of plant based foods, so load up those veggies!
  • Look out for beef cuts like chuck steak - they are perfect for slow cooking, and cost less than some other cuts. Ask our in-store butcher which cut is best for you.
  • Bulk up mince with hidden vegetables or red beans for some extra flavour and nutrition, plus it will go further. Try finely diced carrots, mushrooms or courgettes, the fussy eaters won't even notice!
