Lamb and Mutton

Lamb and Mutton

Both lamb and mutton are very similar types of meat, with one fundamental difference;

  • Lamb is from a sheep less than one-year-old
  • Mutton is the meat of an adult sheep

Just like beef and pork, there are a variety of popular lamb cuts — perhaps lamb chops are the most popular.
