American lamb is tender, delicious and available year-round.
American lamb is up to 10,000 miles fresher than imported lamb.
Lamb is an excellent source of protein, vitamin B12, niacin zinc and selenium.
On average, a 3-ounce serving of lamb has only 175 calories.
American Lamb's rich flavor doesn't need a lot of seasoning....rub your lamb with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
You should try not to cut into lamb to check doneness - it releases the juices leaving the lamb dried out. Use a good meat thermometer instead.
