John, that's what my Mom called "BBQ'd" lamb when I was a kid. That's how she always served leftover lamb. Of course we always had it over brown rice. My Mom was into health foods before it was fashionable.

Years ago Lamb chops were my favorite thing to order in a "fancy" place. Also I remember preparing leg of lamb ever so often. I haven't had it for several years now except occasionally on Gyro. If I did have it I should probably have when dining alone. There are a couple things my wife (who is a great gal) in her words skeeves sp? Lamb and veal are among them.

Mr & Mrs Wolf love lamb too. The reintroduction of wolves is one of several reasons for the much higher cost of lamb. The drought in Australia caused a lot of problems too.
 
Lamb , like beef, comes in various qualities, but unlike beef, fully 40% of lamb in the USA is used in the food service industry. The restaurants pay more for lamb than the supermarkets do, so some supermarkets are having a tough time sourcing good lamb.

Love it! Besides the usual dishes here are some I've enjoyed:

Mutton ribs at Southside Market in Elgin, TX.

Fresh lamb ribs from Lunardi’s Market in Walnut Creek, CA. A grocery store with a real meat department. Lamb ribs with the meat side pried back and spicy lamb sausage inserted. On the grill or in the oven with some BBQ sauce. Never seen it anywhere else.

Lamb dishes at Muslim Chinese restaurants. The signature dish is lamb and sour cabbage soup. Also lamb pot stickers and lamb with scallions and hand-cut noodles.

Lamb at Szechwan Chinese restaurants. Stir-fried with hot oil or with cumin.

One that I’ve never had. Chicken stuffed with lamb and pistachios. James Bond had it in one of the novels when in Lebanon. I’ve asked about it at a couple of Lebanese restaurants but here they make it with beef because they say Americans don’t like lamb.

the ancient mariner

Chewy had a little lamb 
He cooked it to a turn

Mayor Al had a bunch of them and they was lookin g-o-o-d

Joe got WASP Osso Bucco--- but Joe that price is crazy, you could
go broke eating peasant food.   I haven't had lamb shanks since they became a gourmet item.  Even sliced balogna is expensive,
and that's no baloney !!

I've said it before - you're just not right Mr Mariner......

There a a great number of muslims Chinese, living primarily in western China, hence, muslim chinese restaurants. There are muslims chinese restaurants in the US. In order to meet muslims dietary law the chinese keep a Halal kitchen.I have eaten at one in Houston and one in San Francisco. Great fresh food.

Either one loves lamb or simply can't abide it.
 
We never had it in my youth and my first exposure to it was traumatic.  We visited some friends and the female of the house had mutton baking in the oven.  I was revulsed by the vile stench and, for polity, later choked down some for dinner.  Even the next morning their house reeked of it.  Twenty lamb & mutton-free years later I was offered a bite of a Gyro and almost threw up from what I took to be a "metallic" taste.
 
Goodness, this is turning into a negative, non-informative post.  Oh well, more lamb for you!

Charlotte Sailor---ahoy there matey
 
Funny you should mention that----my Sainted Mother would not buy anything but American lamb---said Australian had no taste and was tougher. 
This was 20 or 25 years ago.  Mom was a chef on estates and was taught to shop by an expert---nothing beat American Lamb.  She also said American lamb ran second to Irish but you could not buy Irish lamb in the good old USA.

The mutton chop at Kean's Steakhouse in NY is one of the greatest restaurant dishes I've ever had.  Unfortunately, it's $48.00, so I only have it about once a year.  I'm telling you, it's better than any steak I've ever had.

The recent review on the home page for Southside Market made me want to include these wonderful, meaty and juicy photos of their mutton ribs.

Lamb is by far my favorite meat.  I love every cut....leg, shoulder, rack, chops and especially the shanks.  Braised lamb shanks have to be one of my favorite foods on the planet.

ces 1948,
I also order lamb at a "fancy place".  I always order lamb at Outback, very good & pretty good price.  Lamb can be difficult to find at a regular grocery, but here in Indy the local Meijer store has lamb.  So far I have only gotten lamb chops, but they are very good. 
By the way, is "1948" in your name the year of your birth?  If so, I am just a year older than you-1947.

We took the two Christopher grandsons to the Moonlite BBQ last night. 
 
 For those who haven't met them. I have two grandsons (among the herd of grandkids) named Christopher AARON. both are 14, 9th graders etc etc. They were born 3 months apart , one in San Diego and one here in Louisville. The parents were not aware that they had duplicated the names. For the whole family it has not been anything important...until Califoria Chris came to live with us (Jan and I) this Fall. Now the two Chris's are buddies and hang out together, go to different High Schools...but both answer to the name...so we are working on some unique identification.

   As you know Owensboro KY is noted for it's MUTTON BBQ. In addition to all the other stuff on the buffet on Fridays (Oysters and several styles of Catfish...) The former Californian, Chris, son of Janet's daughter was introduced to MUTTON-- Chopped, Sliced and the Ribs  !  Chris Bowen (son of one of my sons,) devoured 4 plates of BBQ, 3 of the 4 being Mutton Only,  while the other Chris tried the Pork in various forms, the Brisket (too fatty) and even the Chicken.
  So the Mutton Gospel is spreading here in the Ohio Valley.

Good Lord, Al, those two are gonna eat you out of house and home and lamb.  Nice to see kids that are willing to eat something other than fast food.  Long live the Mutton Gospel!

Lisa,
  We only have one living with us. The other and his family live about 10 miles from here. So the food budget has been hit, but not destroyed.
 
Don,
  We tested the Burgoo last night, small-sample cup. It was barely warm and very thin with no real character at all.  I have had much better there, and other places.
 
Lots of folks at Costco this morning picking up "Racks of Lamb" on a store special at $10 a lb. That used to be the standard price but now it is $13 a lb . So the special had folks buying the little lambie ribs.

The taste and smell of lamb are awful to me. It always looks so good on another person's plate, but I know I can't eat it. Maybe it's like cilantro, a definite yes/no situation.

I know I'm a real stick-in-the-mud, but I usually decline lamb and veal.  And cilantro, too, for that matter.  " />
