Top 5 Lamb Cuts and How to Cook Them
Lamb is a firm family favorite and has been for many generations. But there are always key questions to be asked of this savored meat. What is the best cut of lamb for roasting? What different types of lamb are there? At Muscat Livestock we are a leading producer and procurer of fresh, delicious meat, including lamb.
Here are our top five lamb cuts and how to cook them!
Lamb ribs are always a popular option for family dinners. As one of the most flavorful parts of the lamb when cooked right, lamb ribs are a top choice for many people. They are tender, juicy, and delicious when roasted.
Lamb ribs are best cooked with a combination of low heat for a few hours and high heat for about thirty minutes. This will really bring out the flavor and give you a perfect crust!
Lamb shanks are a tougher cut of meat, but when cooked correctly they become tender. This cut is meaty and can be cooked in a variety of ways. Lamb shanks take time commitment, but are absolutely worth it for the delicious flavors you’ll get from this cut.
For best results, coat your cut of meat with your favorite spices and herbs and leave it in the oven on a low heat for several hours. Finish off your lamb shank with searing it at a high heat to release all of those flavors.

Lamb shoulder is a cut of meat that will absolutely melt in your mouth when cooked properly. Cook lamb shoulder on the bone by braising, roasting, or grilling it, and you’ll be met with a mouthful of delicious flavor.
To perfect its rich flavor, try slowly roasting your lamb over several hours. When you’re done roasting your lamb, it’ll be so tender and juicy that the meat will fall from the bone!
Lamb leg (also called leg of lamb) is another prized cut of fresh meat for its flavor. This cut is fantastic when cooked whole and on the bone. Keep your options open – lamb leg is fantastic whether you decide to barbecue it or roast it!
Begin with broiling your lamb leg on either side, and then finish by roasting the cut in your oven for an hour or so. Or, barbecue your lamb for a delightfully smoky taste.
Lamb cubes are a versatile cut of meat. They’re excellent for stews, kababs, curries, and much more. Lamb cubes are tender and flavourful and are relatively easy to cook.
Lamb cubes can be cooked in a variety of ways depending on the recipe. If your cut is on the tougher side, consider cooking it at a low heat for a long period of time. If you’re grilling kababs, begin your lamb at a low heat to cook it thoroughly, and then cook at a high heat for a beautiful crust.
