I came across an article today in Bon Appetit about the benefits of lamb. Perfect timing, after posting a recipe for Irish Lamb Stew for St. Patty’s Day. Did you know that lean cuts of lamb have only about 72-85 milligrams of cholesterol (about the same as chicken)? It is high in protein, zinc, and vitamin B12. You can find tender lamb with good flavor year-round – free of hormones and cage-free. Use it as you would beef: ground as burgers, broiled, roasted, grilled, or baked. It’s time to get out of the beef rut!
