Offal when done well is totally delicious and very good for you. It is a good idea to introduce different cuts into your repertoire, as making the most of each animal is more sustainable for the environment. Lamb kidney is inexpensive and offers great flavour for the cost.
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. We work with traditional expert butchers to make sure that every cut is of the highest standard, helping with flavour, ease-of-cooking, and presentation.
The Black Farmer works with the best local suppliers. 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. We show our passion for high welfare by promoting traditional farming methods and encouraging a sustainable and ethical approach to meat eating. This approach reduces animal stress and lowers food miles as much as possible.
Our lamb kidney is vacuum packed to keep the meat fresh for longer. It is also suitable for home freezing, just be sure to defrost thoroughly before cooking. The easiest way is simply to leave in the fridge overnight.
This pack is approximately 220g.
Remember to remove the lamb kidneys out of the packaging, pat dry and bring to room temperature

- The meat will become more firm as it cooks, gently press with your thumb, the more spring back you get the hotter the protein cells have expand which means the more well done your meat is, for pink it should have a soft feel with a little spring back
