Posted on December 06 2017

Ahh, lamb! When cooked to perfection, its rich, delectable flavour bursting out of the meat can always turn a typical family meal into something extra! What's even better is that lamb meat is so nutritious.

In the New Zealand diet, lean lamb, as well as beef, are considered as the best source of iron. Iron, as we know it, transports oxygen in the bloodstream to produce energy. It is also essential for a healthy immune system and aids in the overall health of our blood cells, bones, and muscles. Aside from that, lamb meat also contains zinc, protein, and the B group of vitamins.

The method of cooking lamb meat varies from one cuisine to another, but amongst the most popular are grilling and boiling, roasting, and baked.
