Lamb Vs. Mutton

Lamb, hogget, and mutton are the meat of domestic sheep. The meat of a sheep in its first year is lamb; that of a juvenile sheep older than one year is hogget; and the meat of an adult sheep is mutton. Lamb is a sheep less than a year old, typically slaughtered between the ages of 4 and 12 months. And the mutton has a much stronger flavor.

Color is a good indicator of age. The lighter the color, the younger the meat. Baby lamb should be pale pink. Regular lamb is pinkish-red. When selecting lamb, take into consideration the tenderness of the cut so you will know how to cook it. Tender cuts require fast cooking over moderate to high heat, while less tender cuts are better for braising and stews.

Tender cuts of lamb include,

  • Rib: Roasts (rib, rack, crown), chops (rib, Frenched rib)
  • Loin: Roasts (loin, double loin), chops (loin, kidney)
  • Leg: Leg of lamb or mutton, leg chop or steak, cubes for kebabs

Less tender cuts of lamb include (longer cooking time),

  • Neck: Neck slices
  • Shoulder: Roasts (rolled, cushion, square shoulder), chops (blade, arm), stew lamb or mutton, ground lamb or mutton
  • Breast: Roasts for stuffing, riblets (stew lamb or mutton)
  • Shank: lamb or mutton shanks
