Lamb Neck Fillet


Lamb neck fillet is a criminally underrated, inexpensive cut of lamb. As it comes from a well-worked part of the lamb, it is a tougher cut. That said, with very long, slow cooking, it becomes meltingly soft with a strong, silky flavour. Although it might look as though there isn’t much meat, once cooked through it yields a surprisingly generous amount of delicious lamb. Adventurous cooks should consider this cut as, with skill and attention, it can create absolutely sensational dishes.

Introducing different cuts into your repertoire is a good idea, as making the most of each animal is more sustainable for the environment. Lamb neck fillet 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.
