We guarantee that after you try a lamb burger, you will never look at burgers the exact same manner again. Not only does a three ounce serving of lamb supply almost five times the quantity of the omega 3 fatty-acid, alpha linolenic acid (ALA) in comparison to the exact same portion of steak, it also packages in about fifty per cent (or 23 grams) of your daily protein requirements. And at approximately 175 calories per three oz serving, lamb fits well into a healthy, balanced diet program that adheres to total fat, saturated-fat, and guidelines.

Perhaps it’s time to “meat” lamb on your grill.  Tasty, wholesome, and simple to prepare, lamb can change an otherwise common backyard get-together into an exceptional party. This summer, give your grill and your taste buds some good lovin’ lamb! Enter our Delight From The Grill Contests! You Could Acquire a Weber® Grill Prize Bundle!
