Don’t wait for a special occasion – spice up your everyday meals with fresh American lamb tonight. American lamb offers delicious flavor and variety to your menus and is sure to impress everyone around the table. Don’t worry – cooking lamb is easy! It’s perfect for convenient, everyday cooking.
- Marinating allows the budget-minded cook to use the most affordable cuts of meat in kebobs, since many marinades not only flavor the chunks of meat but also tenderize them.
- Tired of the same old steaks and burgers? Don’t be afraid to try American lamb on the grill. Whether it’s a marinated loin chop, kebobs or even a ground lamb burger, American lamb is a great secret weapon when it comes to grilling. Lamb is just as easy to grill as other meats but the flavor is uniquely sweet and rich.
- Don’t rush a large American lamb roast by cooking it at a constant high temperature; it can cook unevenly – underdone in the center and overdone just below the surface. For best results, first sear the roast followed by low and slow roasting.
- The proper determination of doneness for American lamb that has been prepared by a moist heat method like braising is tenderness, not temperature. Lamb that is slow cooked is done when the meat is tender and a fork can easily pull through the meat.
