Lamb is a good source of iron, vitamins and has protein that is rich in essential amino acids. Ontario Fresh Premium Lamb deserves a spot on your table any time of the week!
Ontario Lamb is particularly rich in vitamin B-12 and in niacin, zinc, and iron. Just 3 oz of cooked lamb, with any excess fat removed, provides the average person with 48 percent of their daily protein requirements, 30 percent zinc, 10 percent iron, 37 percent vitamin B-12 and 27 percent niacin Source: American Lamb Council.
A good quality lamb will have a nice fat finish, which not only adds flavour to the lean meat but, can also be—in the right amount—a healthy part of a balanced diet. Only one-third of the fat in lamb is saturated, the rest is mono or polyunsaturated, the “good” fat in one’s diet.
Settle into the cooler weather with this delicious and hearty braised lamb shank meal for any night of the week!
