MSP - Good lamb at a good price?

cayjohan | Nov 26, 2006 03:30 AM

Last night I picked up 9 (New Zealand) lamb loin chops for $4.99 per pound at Holy Land (<$7.00 total). Just last week I (almost) bought 4 lamb loin chops at Lund's for around $18.00.

I have had lamb from both venues and found it wonderful, if not spectacular, as in the case of Holy Land (the sirloin half leg).

Question: Is lamb in the Twin Cities a crap-shoot for price, or is it a crap-shoot for quality? I'd love to hear what other lamb buyers have to say.

Since - c'mon, the 7 rib roast in plastic-wrap at the market does not tempt me to pay over 43 bucks. Cripes, at Holy Land, I can talk to the butcher cutting my meat - no cling-wrap-in-coolers. Anyone singing the praises of Halal markets?
