Lamb Stock - or Lamb bones to make stock

Anyone know where I can find Lamb Stock - whether it's in boullion cube form, or concentrate, boxed, canned, frozen, etcc....

I went to a cooking class the other day and made a Pot Roast with the chef - and it came out to be the BEST Pot Roast I had ever made. I swear it wasn't anything different - had all the same veggies, same cut of meat, herbs etc....but I realized that the thing that made INSANELY rich and delicious was that we used Lamb Broth vs. just water or Chicken Broth. So now - I want to find lamb stock or broth.

I'm down to make my own stock too, but that requires getting a hold of lamb bones - and I'm not sure how to go about finding that....any suggestions? I live in Oakland, work in SF - so any suggestions within the immediate SF Bay Area would be ideal.

  1. Check with your local Halal butcher. In Berkeley, there are 2 on the same block of San Pablo at University.

    1. Three Stone Hearth in Berkeley sometimes sells lamb stock, and also excellent beef stock which also makes delectable pot roast.

      If you want to make your own, I'm pretty sure the guys at Ver Brugge on College would sell you lamb bones.

      1. Little City Meats in North Beach (corner of Stockton and Vallejo) is a great resource for stock bones. They don't have any veal bones at the moment (I just cleaned them out) but they had lots of lamb bones.

        1. Thanks for all the great suggestions! I will definitely do some exploring.

          1. I've gotten lamb necks at Golden Gate Meats in the Ferry Building. Good stuff for stock.

              But perhaps better as an entree as at Incanto per Morton the Mousse.
