Chops and steaks can be prepared on a BBQ, broiled or grilled. Leg of lamb and rack of lamb are best roasted. Other, more muscular cuts, such as shanks and stew meat should ideally be simmered or braised at a lower temperature for longer periods to allow them to become tender and infused with flavor.
Alberta Lamb cuts are generally larger, with a milder flavor, than imported lamb because Alberta Lamb is grain finished.
