Is Lamb Difficult to Cook?

In the United States lamb is not commonly cooked with, this makes it seem more difficult to cook than other types of meat. Cooking lamb, when following a good recipe, it actually is fairly easy to cook. The thing you want to worry about the most is the meat being too tough or too dry. If you can avoid this, then you will have a delicious Christmas Lamb recipe to enjoy.

What is the best cut of lamb to cook with?

The leg and rack are known to be the most tender cuts of the lamb. These do taste the best when roasted. Tougher parts of the lamb that are also used in cooking are the shank and shoulder. Most often these are used in stews.

What temperature do you cook meat to?

You want to be sure that you cook your lamb long enough. An internal temperature of 140 degrees is rare, 160 degrees is medium, and 170 degrees is well done. Use a digital meat thermometer to get the cook on the meat just right.
