I picked up a package of Lamb Shoulder Fillet, something unfamiliar to me. They are 3 little fillets, about 2-1/2x4 they are nicely marbeled on the outside and look lean in the center. Anyone have experience using these? I'm not sure what to do with them and a web search isn't helping so far.

Ohhhh! I can't wait for the answers. This cut sounds yummy. By any chance was it purchased in NYC?

I bought it at Fresh & Easy Market in CA. They are owned by the British company Tesco and often have some British products. I might search on UK websites for ideas.

This recipe sounds delicious, though may not be what you were thinking: http://www.foodnetwork...
I'd also think about grinding it: http://www.food52.com/recipes...

Looks like you can do about anything with it. Here's what they look like:

I'm trying kebabs, have them in a yogurt marinade now. I couldn't decide between marinating in Harissa or yogurt so I put Harissa in the yogurt. The suggestion to make into burgers was probably a good one too, because they do have some fat on them.

A chimichurri sauce with the kabobs would be nice. Many recipes out there, but a basic mix of olive oil, chopped parsley, lemon juice and red pepper flakes. Whisked in a mini-prep would be a nice side sauce with the Harrisa and yogurt flavorings.

And maybe some mint in there too.

If indeed they look like those pictured I would be thinking about a tagine as opposed to kebab. I think they could possibly use some braising time and you could still deploy your harissa and couscous.

Thank you for the Kofte recipe, sounds right up my alley.

Thanks for all the suggestions everyone. I will buy this again, I got a great sale proce for expiring that day meat and I kept it 2 more days and it still seemed really fresh.
