Our Five Marys pasture-raised, Navajo Churro lamb cuts produce excellent flavor, and this is especially true for the Leg of Lamb. Our Leg of Lamb cuts are between two and five pounds. They should be slow-roasted or braised, and will be the perfect main course in any Mediterranean dinner.
The Loin is a prized cut on the lamb, known for tender and flavorful Loin Chops and occasionally Loin Roasts. At Five Marys, we sell Loin Chops in packs of four. They are great for grilling, broiling, and sautéing to medium-rare.
The Rack of Lamb is one of the most delectable cuts on a lamb. It consists of eight Rib Chops, all with incredible flavor and texture. Rack of Lamb should be cooked rare, and is best at medium-rare. It can be cooked altogether or cut into individual chops to be cooked individually. It is best to prepare them using high heat, quick cooking methods.
Our M5 Rib Chops come in packs of four delicious “lollipops,” as we affectionately call them. Like the Rack of Lamb, these should be cooked quickly on high heat, whether that be pan-searing or fast oven roasting, to medium-rare. Dip them in our famous Five Marys Chimichurri (recipe below) for a delicious lamb dinner.
Lamb Shanks are a bone-in cut, a favorite for lamb dishes like “braised lamb shanks.” They can be prepared in a roasting pot or dutch oven, and taste best when slow-cooked and braised with red wine or olive oil, vegetables, and herbs.
Lamb Neck Slices are great for the adventurous cook! With usually three slices to a pack, they are chock-full of nutrients and collagen which dissolves as it cooks. Because this cut is tough, it should be slow-cooked for a long time to achieve the best possible texture.
Five Marys Ground Lamb doesn’t come from just one place on the lamb. It is commonly taken from trimmings and less tender cuts, but at Five Marys we take pride in ensuring our Ground Lamb is ground from more desirable cuts of the lamb, too! Our Ground Lamb is made of trimmings from the entire animal, whether that be the Neck or Breast of a sheep. A diversity in cuts ensures the greatest flavor and quality of our Ground Lamb. Ground Lamb is a delicious substitute for Ground Beef and Ground Pork, and it is perfect in Mediterranean dishes and pastas. Try our Lamb Merguez Sausage for a fuller, spicy flavor!
Our gorgeous Navajo Churro heritage sheep have such beautiful hides with long luxurious wool, we decided early on we had to find a way to preserve their beauty and honor the whole animal by tanning them into gorgeous pelts. Our custom made sheepskin pelts are of the finest craftsmanship and involve quite a process to become a pelt. These pelts are supple and soft suede on the back side and incredible long lambs wool on the front, perfect for a cozy couch throw, an ottoman or home decor. They can be cleaned at home with warm water and mild detergent and air dried (never heat or they will felt).
