Lamb is a red meat that is very healthful and extremely delicious, having a very tender and buttery quality. Diemand Farm lamb is grass fed and free of added hormones and antibiotics. A growing body of research indicates that eating grass-fed meat is a healthy choice because it is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin E and beta-carotene, and lower in fat than grain-fed meat.
It is usually available in five different cuts including the shoulder, rack, shank/breast, loin, and leg.
“Rack of lamb” usually refers to a rib cut that includes nine ribs and can be split into rib roasts. Lamb “chops” can come from several different cuts. For example, “rib chops” come from the rib and “loin chops” come from the loin. “Blade” chops come from the shoulder. Sirloin chops come from the leg. Ground lamb can be used to make burgers, meat loaf, or sauces.
