Lamb Cannon


The lamb equivalent to fillet steak, lamb cannon is a premium, boneless cut. It is made from half of the loin side of lamb, which we trim and roll. This creates a lean, flavoursome cut that is easy to roast and slice.

The best way to cook lamb cannon is to seal it all over in a hot skillet. One browned and lightly caramelised, put the skillet in the oven and roast to your liking. Baste with herbs and butter, check seasoning and allow to rest. Serve with a rich gravy, wilted spinach and roast potatoes for a show-stopping meal.


Even the best meat still requires expert preparation, so we work with master butchers who ensure our lamb cannon is immaculate. All our cuts are skilfully prepared by hand in time-honoured, traditional fashion. We never compromise on our standards, which is central to maintaining the quality you have come to expect. When choosing a cut of lamb, look for firm, fine-grained meat with a velvety texture; it should be moist, rather than dry or slimy.


The Black Farmer have been working with the best local suppliers since our inception. We source highest-quality lamb from the South West of England, which is fed on grass and free to graze the lush fields that abound in the area. By working with local produce and farmers, we promote and encourage a sustainable and ethical approach to meat eating, which reduces animal stress and lowers food miles as much as possible.


Lamb cannon is vacuum-packed, which keeps it fresh for longer and makes it suitable for home freezing. Make sure that you defrost the meat slowly and thoroughly before cooking. The easiest way is simply to leave in the fridge overnight.

Here’s cooking instruction for Lamb Cannon:

1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
2. Season the lamb cannon with salt and pepper, ensuring all sides are coated.
3. Heat a skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat and add a drizzle of oil. Sear the lamb cannon on all sides until nicely browned, about 2-3 minutes per side.
4. Transfer the lamb cannon to a roasting pan or oven-safe dish. Optionally, you can add some herbs like rosemary or thyme for extra flavor.
5. Place the roasting pan in the preheated oven and cook for about 15-20 minutes for medium-rare or until the desired level of doneness. Remember that cooking times may vary depending on the thickness of the lamb cannon and your preference.
6. Remove the lamb cannon from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing. This allows the juices to redistribute, resulting in a more tender and flavorful meat.
7. Slice the lamb cannon into thick slices and serve immediately. It pairs well with roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, or a side salad.

Enjoy your deliciously cooked Lamb Cannon!
