Lamb is a flavoursome meat that is enjoyed by Aussies, both young and old.
Whether it’s carving a roast on the dinner table or eating cutlets around the barbeque, lamb has a long tradition of bringing people together.
Australians love our lamb and we find a way to serve it in any season – but many people are not sure how to get the most out of this popular meat. With the help of NEFF appliances and some delicious recipes from The NEFF Kitchen, we can help you to find a new appreciation for this flavoursome meat.
First things first:
Get to know your cuts of lamb…
Lamb is known for being tender, full of flavour, and high in protein. But the texture flavour and preparation methods will vary from cut to cut. Lambchops are best served pink and cooked on a grill, while shoulder cuts are great for stews and slow roasts. Click here to find out more about different cuts of lamb
