Are there places where sheep are not pastured but kept in lots like beef cattle? I live in Spain and one can always see sheep grazing. I don't think it would even be profitable to buy in all the food for sheep and lambs on a typical feed lot. I... (more)
A week ago, I bought a lamb roast from Costco (imported from Oz), cut it up into steaks and smaller roasts and froze the meat. I decided to make lamb steaks last night for dinner, just fried in some ghee with a bit of salt and pepper, with some... (more)
Tried a Halal market yesterday and was delighted to find all kinds of unusual offal. I have lamb's feet-- I'll add that to bone broth, no problem. I purchased a large package of liver with something attached to it-- it turns out to be lungs,... (more)
I got a bunch of lamb meat for a great deal recently, and I am hoping for some advice on a nice way to cook lamb shank. I do cook a lot, so if you have an ambitious recipe or a tip on handling this particular cut, please share!
I impulsively bought a small bag of lamb neck bones at my local greenmarket last week. Is there any quick way to cook them? All of the recipes I've found are stews, but I've already got about a gallon of bison bolognese in the fridge. Ideally I'd... (more)
I just opened up my package of grass fed lamb livers I received from my local rancher. I first noticed that they really didn't have a smell...until I started cutting into it. Now I think they smell faintly fruity--like plums. Anyone else share... (more)
Hello. I am supposed to be getting between 40 and 50% of my calories from protein, and am looking to diversify my proteins. So, I was looking on grasslandbeef.com and came across "lamb oysters" http://www.grasslandbeef.com/Detail.bok?no=1086 Are... (more)
..Quarter them and saute them in liberal amount of butter, salt, pepper and whole cumin seed for seasoning.. have them on a piece of crunchy lettuce... YUM..!!
Is there vitamin D in liver? If so, is it a significant amount like the vitamin A content? Also, are there any significant nutritional differences among lamb, duck, chicken and beef liver?
Does anyone know if this ground lamb from Whole Foods (from New Zealand) is: Grass Fed? How old is it likely to be? (I don't think it is shipped frozen, and New Zealand is pretty far away from Philadelphia). From what I understand, lamb... (more)
Basically all NZ beef and lamb products are grass fed
I bake my lamb chops on a cast iron skillet in the oven. I dont use any butter or oil to cook this. When it's done they are swimming in a pool of their own fat. Typically I throw it out if I'm not dipping veggies in it. Any suggestions as to what... (more)
The only thing better than broccoli sauteed in duck fat is broccoli sauteed in lamb fat. I trim a good chunk of the lamb fat off before cooking (leaving a bit for the taste), and render it. Stick it in a mason jar in the fridge ...
So, I switched to lamb as my main red meat and animal fat instead of grassefed beef about 4 months ago thinking that it would be lower in environmental toxins because of the young age of the animal at culling. Am I fooling myself? Does all the... (more)
I know this is a very specific question, but it's difficult to figure out! I've heard the beef here is often grain-finished (depending on rainfall and the seasons), and this is a selling-point for many suppliers. But what about lamb/goats? On... (more)
I bought some Catelli "Lamb Country Style Ribs" from the supermarket imported from Australia. It has a sticker that says "Grass Feed" on it but not all the packages from this brand have stickers that say that. Do you think that means 100% grass fed? (more)
I went to a store that gets all its meat from local farmers in VA/MD area. I asked the lady who works there if the meat is 100% grass-fed. She said yes for beef, but not for pork and lamb or chickens. She said that for lambs they can't be 100%... (more)
Yeah, my family has a farm and we hired a farm manager who had owned his own conventional farm before he worked for us, so he wasn't really up to speed with grass-fed. He insisted that the cows needed grains in the winter and I was like "nope" and... (more)
Does lamb not "sit well" with anyone else? It's not making me vomit or anything, but I just feel sort of uneasy and kind of had to force myself to finish my lamb steak. I want to love lamb but :((( Any suggestions for making it more appetizing?... (more)
Hi, I've been Paleo for almost three weeks. I started it to treat an immune dysfunction that's probably due to inflammation. I'm being very strict. No eggs, no nightshades, and only ghee for dairy. I have three questions and would love some help... (more)
I would skip the nuts as much as you can... omega 6s as well as gut irritants. If you can find it you may wanna try veal liver, it's waaaaaay more palatable than beef liver. good luck!
OK you wonderful hackers, I feel like this is a silly question but here goes nothing: I just cooked my first lamb steak tonight (pan-fried with rosemary and butter) and there is a SERIOUS amount of solid, unchewable fat leftover from the cut. I... (more)
Put it in a small jar and cook with it, use it like bacon grease, butter, or oil. I use it for cooking eggs, vegetables, or I put a little in the pan before cooking more lamb. :)
So, this may sound weird, but I've got 6 pounds of freshly chopped lamb tails in my fridge. Apparently it's the only cut of meat where you don't kill the animal, as the lambs tails are cropped for hygiene. They are apparently a delicacy too, and... (more)
Yeah, I've cooked one, but it was from a Tunis lamb, which is a fat-tailed lamb so it was pretty fatty. I braised it with spices in my crockpot and it turned out really good. You can use any generic braising recipe, like one for lamb shanks.
