The Major Ingredient - The Lamb!

If you don’t remember the last time you cooked lamb, then I must remind you that you’re definitely missing one of the important ingredients you should include in your diet. There has been a shift in lifestyle, particularly in individuals under 35 who live in North Western European countries such as England, where they hardly seem to purchase or cook lamb nowadays.

Lamb Try it, Love it

The EU funded Lamb Try it, Love it campaign has enabled people to discover the unique flavours of lamb at their convenience. This Lamb Mince & Potato recipe is a popular South Asian protein-packed dish which is perfect for a midweek meal. The high quality lamb produced by European farmers follows sustainable practices and is a major contribution to local economies. Lamb is often used as an important ingredient in my kitchen, and I feel it's a really exciting ingredient to cook and test in different recipes.

Variety of Cuts of Lamb

Being a versatile ingredient, lamb can be used in lots of different recipes and is available in various cuts. Incredible lamb dishes can be made using affordable lamb cuts like mince and steaks. However, don’t be afraid to try lamb cuts like chop, rump, neck, leg, shank, breast, loin rack, and shoulder. Many lamb dishes can easily be cooked in only 30 minutes and are packed with flavour.

Health Benefits of Lamb

High quality lamb produced by European farmers is naturally rich in protein and contains several natural vitamins and minerals’ (please refer to this blog post for the health benefits). If you haven't mixed lamb in your everyday diet, give it a go. Once you try it, you're definitely going to love it! For more information on lamb and the Lamb Try It, Love It campaign, click here.
