Ground Lamb in NJ
Does anybody know of a good place to buy ground lamb in central or northern New Jersey? I'm looking to buy about 5 lbs and need some quality meat.
do you have a butcher you deal with? i would think any butcher that carries lamb would grind it for you. i grind blade steaks at home when i want ground lamb. they're cheap and suit my needs.
If you don't have a local butcher nearby, even the meat dept at a supermarket will grind it for you...
