Sunday Funday: Shepherds Pride Edition

Shepherd’s Pride Lamb from Mountain States is a Where Food Comes From® approved product. They take pride in producing premium-quality lamb that not only meets, but exceeds, the USDA criteria for natural meats. They require their ranching families to follow strict guidelines for raising lambs without the use of any antibiotics or added hormones

You can even meet the families that produce their lambs. I don’t know may companies that can offer that.


My household doesn’t really consume that much meat but, when I had the opportunity to try lamb (which I had never had before) I jumped at the chance. I was warned by many that there is a certain finesse that one must possess to properly execute lamb, and after two failed attempts I called in my Daddy to show me the ropes, and learned that lamb is really quick and easy to prepare.


Prep: Marinate with olive oil, chopped garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper

Cook: Sear both sides for one and a half minute and place in oven on 350 for 5 minutes


I paired this yummy goodness with yellow rice and fresh asparagus for a meal that took less than 30 minutes from start to finish and, yes, it was all kinds of awesomeness! I know some of you caught this fun prep day on my instastories but I wanted to make sure to share with the masses.


So, next time you are meal prep shopping give this heart healthy meat a try! What are some of your favorite ways to enjoy lamb?
