RETAIL CUTS and pricing for Spring 2014_________________________________________________________

Leg of Lamb: a classic holiday meal that should be eaten more often! We often have them cut into steaks or use in ground for premium ground lamb.

Shoulder Roast: great for slow cooking in the Dutch oven, fall apart tender when done.  It’s a large roast so consider it for larger families or gatherings. This is one of my favorite cuts when I have a large party.

Chops:  we like them best grilled to 140 degrees internal temperature.

Rib Rack: an elegant presentation of the best part of the lamb.

Shanks:  are the leanest part of the lamb and are great braised, they fall off the bone.

Kabob: cut from the leg, you can skewer and grill or stew

Stew: cut from the shoulder, these small pieces make a great Guinness Stew.

Ground Lamb:  remarkably lean, many chefs cut lamb with a little beef but this is not necessary with the mild flavor of this ground lamb; when I made chili with ground lamb last winter there was less fat when browning the meat than with beef.

Lamb Sausage: sage breakfast sausage; or try some Italian links.
