FAQs about ground lamb
While ground lamb contains a higher fat content than ground beef, grass-fed lamb is much better for you than grain-fed lamb or beef from grain-fed cattle. Most ground lamb contains some fat. You'll find the level of fat noted on the label, much like ground beef. You can find up to 98% lean ground lamb down to 70% lean. Fat content isn't all bad. Fat, when it renders into the meat through the cooking process, imparts flavor. The more fat, the more flavor you'll end up with in your dish.
The reason ground lamb has such a unique odor comes from the grass it eats. The grass contains phytol, a natural, organic compound found in the fat of the lamb. Lamb also has more unsaturated fat than beef. Therefore, it has a more pungent odor.
The answer depends on two other questions. First, which dish are you preparing? Second, which spices do you like? Spices that naturally and traditionally pair well with lamb include marjoram, mint, cardamom, cinnamon, mace, rosemary, paprika, oregano, sage, and thyme. Ultimately, how you season your ground lamb comes down to the flavors you enjoy.
