Braised Lamb Breast – Cheap & Tasty

We were in Walmart in Cottonwood AZ the other day and I came across a vac sealed bag of Lamb breast.  I’ve never seen lamb breast in a store before.  They were only $1.78 a pound. Since we love lamb but hate the high price of the best cuts, we decided to see if we could do something with this.

The package was 4.01 pounds and cost $7.14.  Thats very cheap compared the lamb I’ve bought in the past.  The cut is a whole lot of bone and fat but some interesting meat too.  We have two pieces in the package.  One is all ribs and the other is ribs and the flank.

Here’s what we did with it:

  1. just got the same cut, took forever removing the membranes and most of the fat, lost about 40% of the total bulk in fat slabs. Wondering if smoking would make the fat melt off? Was it too fatty when you ate it?
