Where to buy boneless lamb shoulder?

AubWah Jan 7, 2012 06:21 PM

I am looking to purchase a pound for a reasonable price and have the butcher cut it into half inch chunks for me. Anyone know where to go for it?

    They sell lamb shoulder in Fairway. I saw it at the Harlem store last week. Be prepared to spend 10 dollars a pound for it.

        Not Manhattan, but AubWah posts frequently about the Cobble Hill area so I figured I'd mention that I believe I've gotten it at either Staubitz or Los Paisanos (don't remember which). I'm going to need some in a couple of weeks so I need to check it out, I'll post back if I find anything, let us know what else you turn up.

          This should be moved to the Outer Boroughs board, but Fleishers in Park Slope sells it at competitive prices.

          But if AubWah is looking for less expensive than Fleishers/Staubitz/Fresh Direct prices, I would check out the halal butchers in Brooklyn and Queens. Haven't purchased lamb there but I'm thinking it would be cheaper.

            got it at Paisanos the other day for around $10 a pound. it's not on display but they have it and will cut it off the bone for you. be sure to take the bones too, if you can, since even if you don't serve they can add body and flavor to a dish.

            Other places to get it (in brooklyn) include the halal butcher on atlantic ave and my fave, the halal butcher on church ave in kensington where it's a lot cheaper than $10 a pound.

            Fresh Direct has it -- this is one of my favorite things to cook.

              Second the Staubitz suggestion if you are in downtown Brooklyn area or you can call and ask. Whenever I've needed a particular cut of meat or a particular request, Staubitz always came through. The butchers behind the counter are pretty nice, too.
