4. How do I cook lamb? Well... let's start with getting it from frozen to thawed, and then move onto cooking.
Thawing Lamb --There are three ways to safely thaw frozen lamb:
a. In the refrigerator—Once frozen lamb has thawed in the refrigerator, lamb roasts and chops should be used within 3 to 5 days; ground lamb or stew meat should be used within 1 to 2 days. If the lamb is not used within this time period, it may be refrozen.
b. In cold water—Lamb may be thawed in its packaging (if airtight) or transferred to leak-proof bag. To thaw, submerge lamb in cold water, changing the water every 30 minutes. Lamb should be cooked immediately after thawing. It should not be refrozen unless cooked first.
c. In the microwave—After frozen lamb is thawed in the microwave, it should be cooked immediately. It should not be refrozen unless cooked first.
Cooking Lamb -- all lamb should be tender and juicy when prepared. The best cooking method for lamb depends on the cut. Tender cuts of lamb such as rack, loin and some parts of the leg are best prepared using dry heat cooking methods such as broiling, grilling and roasting.
Less tender cuts of lamb such as shoulder and shanks and ribs are best prepared using combination or moist heat cooking methods such as braising and stewing. A meat thermometer is best guide for checking doneness of lamb:• 145°F for medium-rare • 160°F for medium • 170°F for well done
Lamb should stand about 5 to 10 minutes before slicing. Keep in mind that temperature will continue to rise upon standing.
