COOKING TIPS

PLEASE DO NOT THAW IN MICROWAVE- ALLOW TO THAW AT ROOM TEMPERATURE!

Chops like beef steaks or pork chops, lamb chops are pieces of meat that are cut small enough to serve as individual portions. They can be broiled, grilled, pan-fried or roasted. The cook time will vary depending on the thickness of the chops. For 1-inch think chops, cook for approximately 4 to 6 minutes per side or until desired doneness. Chops should be cooked to an internal temperature,of about 145 F for medium-rare.  To otain the internal temperature, insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the chops without touching the bone. Keep in mind that as the chop rests its internal temperature typically rises 5 degrees, so remove chop from heat before it reaches desired temperature.

Marinades are best used for broiled or grilled lamb chops. Do NOT overcook the meat. Lamb should still have a pink center when done.DO not thaw chops in the microwave. Either place in the fridge overnight or place in a bowl with running cold water (must stay in a plastic seal while thawing). Before cooking make sure to let chops come to room temperature. This will ensure even cooking throughout.

Spice rubs not only add flavor but they help create a tasty crust. Spice rubs are best for the lamb loin, rib chop cuts and lamb roast. 

Spice rubs not only add flavor to lamb chops, they also help create a tasty crust. Great on your Ladies of the Lamb Loin & Rib chops. Also can be used on any of our roasts. 

Products to use for the lamb stew use the stew cut or lamb shanks. Both of these are always available! 

For the garlic lamb and broccoli stir fry use the leg of lamb or center cut steaks. 

 

Prepare your lamb chops by piercing with a fork several times around all sides. For full flavor, marinate your lamb chops for at least 4 hours up to overnight.
