Lamb has a delicate flavor. Tasted alone, there’s a sweetness to it, a luxuriousness you don’t find in other meats. It’s softer, more likely to make you pause mid-chew to marvel at its richness.
If ever lamb graces a menu, I’m almost assuredly ordering it. I love it that much. Braised lamb shank? I’ll take it. Lamb chops? Send them over. Spiced lamb burger with mint? Swoon.
Here, I’ve upgraded traditional beef meatballs to a deluxe version with lamb. Sweet apricot, bright parsley, rich lamb, sharp garlic, and coriander.
The marriage of flavors is downright delightful.
