When we moved and I finally had a patio to set up a grill I got sticker shock on steak and other beef costs.
Ironically the cheapest red meat I could find after seasoning was lamb loin chops at $6.99 lb. Tasted awesome then recently lamb shoulder chops have been on sale for as low as $3.99 lb while steaks hover about $8.99 lb.
They rock at 135F with a S/P and a sprinkling of mesquite seasoning and some fresh minced rosemary on the plate and sprinkled over it to rest.
I seem to recall lamb was more expensive than beef in years past. It is puzzling to me that something this good is that cheap. So for the budget conscious carnivore try them. I didn't try any fancy Greek or other Mediterranean recipe just treated them as steaks,
I need to grab some at the Mediterranean market that are larger sized ones this weekend
Any other big bang cost to taste items?
