Why Not Take a Break from Ground Beef

Why Not Take a Break from Ground Beef

Add Ground Lamb to Your Weeknight Meals!

Because ground meat is economical and full of quick protein, it’s a natural choice for weeknight meals. And, since winter has settled in for a good long while, it’s definitely the season for warm meals with ground meat, such as chili, shepherd’s pie, spaghetti & meatballs, and countless more. While ground beef is often the go-to meat for these types of recipes, why not switch things up and use ground lamb instead?

Ground lamb is full of nutrients, such as protein, iron, selenium, zinc, plus Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids (the “good” fats). Because lamb is raised on small farms like Misty Lane, the meat is wholesome and clean, which is good not only for your health, but also good for the environment, since small farms tend to treat their animals well and use sustainable methods.

Some might be wary of the strong flavor of lamb meat, but many who try it are pleasantly surprised at how mild and delicious it is. Adding ground lamb to your recipe rotation is a great way to add variety and nutrition! Misty Lane ground lamb comes in 1 pound frozen packages, so all you need to do is pull a package (or two, depending on your recipe) from your freezer to your fridge the day before you make your meal, and it will be ready to use in any number of dishes.
