Please note this is a B-grade product. There is nothing wrong with the safety or the taste of the product. The packaging has formed ice crystals during the storage period and some chops are cut asymmetrical - not to our high-quality standards. Just a few packs are available. Find our regular product here.
New Zealand lamb is internationally known for its superior quality and taste. Our New Zealand lamb chops take it one step further: All year free-range open pasture-raised, grass-fed lambs. Free of growth-promoting hormones and subtherapeutic use of antibiotics.
Our quality lamb chops come from family-owned and operated farms and ranches in New Zealand only. Ethical raising has always been the cultural tradition in New Zealand. These lamb chops are incredibly tender and loaded with flavor. Simple to prepare and visually impressive. Our top-quality lamb is free of strong lamb odor and the meat is tender, juicy and much brighter in color due to the young age of the lambs at the time of harvest. You get 4 small lamb chops/cutlets per pack - trimmed, cut and ready for cooking.

Instructions & Cooking Tips
Completely defrost the chops in the fridge overnight or in cold water within a few hours. Open the pack and pat dry with a paper towel. Allow the chops to breathe for a few minutes.
Season with olive oil, freshly ground coarse (!) black pepper and coarse (!) sea salt. That's it. For the best taste experience do not add sauces or "ready spice mixes" - this quality lamb tastes incredibly good the way it is.
Preheat the fry-pan or skillet to medium-high heat - you need to hear it sizzle. The lamb chops are very small and cook very fast. Keep turning them.
Make sure the outer layer is crispy brown and caramelized. Take off the heat once firm to the touch. You can't really go wrong with overcooking the lamb chops.
We are great fans of the natural taste of quality products and will always recommend avoiding heavy sauces and spice mixes. Try our lamb just like this - you'll love it. If you had a bad experience with lamb in the past - give our quality lamb a chance.
Lamb chops taste best eaten by hand. Juicy, tender and flavorful New Zealand quality lamb. Enjoy
