Did you know that lamb is as versatile and as easy to prepare as your standard beef and pork dishes? More forgiving than chicken?
It’s true! The ease of cooking lamb is one of our best-kept secrets… allowing you to impress your family and friends just by serving this flavorful and juicy dish. Lamb is also incredibly versatile. Depending on the cut, it can be braised, baked, grilled, barbequed, stewed, roasted or pan-fried.
Alberta lamb has a particularly mild flavor, allowing it to easily pair with your favorite spices and side dishes. Mint, parsley, rosemary, thyme, marjoram, coriander, garlic, basil and oregano are all ideal spices for lamb depending on the flavor direction you want to go in.

Or you can add local flavor by basting it in Canadian Maple Syrup. Mmmmm. Of course, pairing lamb with mint jelly or sauce is a traditional and delectable starting point.
