Looking for a juicy meat to spruce up any meal of the week? Look no further than our lamb shoulder chops, which are available in three-pound packs for all your culinary exploits. These perfectly marbled shoulder chops are incredibly affordable compared to traditional cuts of lamb, yet they still deliver all the flavor and tenderness you expect. Boasting a color that varies from pink to pale red, you can create a colorful food presentation worthy of any cooking challenge. Lamb differs from mutton in that it is usually sourced from younger sheep, which have very little fat and result in lean meat that is tender with every mouthwatering bite.
Nothing’s quite classier than our lamb shoulder chops. The primary difference between lamb and beef is the branched-chain fatty acids that give lamb a slightly earthier taste. Whether you’re preparing for a formal dinner party or a grand holiday meal with your loved ones, our lamb is delicate and downright succulent when braised, slow-cooked, baked, or pan-grilled. Pair with seasonal veggies or your favorite side dish to create an unforgettable meal worthy of recreating for any occasion.
Don’t back down from full-bodied flavor. Our lamb shoulder chops are sure to be a crowd-pleasure no matter the occasion. Robert Wholey Company specializes in finding adventurous meats and seafood and delivering them straight to your doorstep.
