Americans currently don’t eat nearly as much lamb as people in many other countries. In places like Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East, lamb is a staple and incredibly common. In the United States, most Americans eat on average a pound or less of lamb per year.
Our New Zealand lamb is quickly becoming a customer favorite. We constantly hear from people who thought they didn’t like the taste of lamb meat, but absolutely love ours. Although lamb is currently much less popular in American than in other countries, the demand for this delectable and versatile meat is starting to rise in the United States.
These meatballs are my absolute favorite way to convert people who think that they don’t like lamb. For one thing, our lamb is really special. We get customers all the time who say that they never thought they enjoyed eating lamb until they tried ours.
It’s no secret that Americans are constantly purchasing and eating beef, chicken and pork. However, a lot of people in this country aren’t eating lamb meat regularly. In fact, Americans currently eat on average only about a pound of lamb per year.
The lamb meat is much more tender and more mild in flavor than the mutton, and therefore far more popular. The lamb meat also has a lower fat content than it’s more mature counterpart.
