    Sheep and cows eat grass, not known for it's high fat content, so why is lamb fatty and beef comparitively lean?
     
  2. Cos they is lambs not sheep. Mainly drunk mums fattening milk all of their lives.
    I love lamb.

    we had a leg of lamb given to us last week. It was amazing. Hardly any fat. Buy organic, from a local slaughterhouse if you can.

  5. The fat comes mainly on the outside of the beast - there is much more meat between the outside and bones of a cow!
    Have a look at comparative cuts - a leg of lamb is certainly lean but then again so are the joints cut from the legs of cattle (topside etc). For a lovely fatty bit o'beef look at a well produced sirloin or rib (saddle or rack on a sheep).
    Fat on meat is where it's at (from a flavour and savour point of view)
    Yum!

    You are over cooking the steaky/choppy bits or under-cooking the shanks/scrag-end. :)

  14. As well as what fatty stuff the farmers supplement their diets with nowadays.
    Fat=flavour.
