Fatty Ground Lamb, what to do with it?!!

A friend of mine just asked me whether I had any ideas for what to do with VERY fatty ground lamb that she just bought from Peapod. I suggested that she brown it and drain off the fat and then use it in a sauce of some kind. That is not the most creative solution. Anyone have any ideas?

      Do you think that the fact that this is REALLY fatty will be problematic in either of those recipes?

        No, because for both you cook the meat first. Extra fat could be poured off before adding onions, etc.

    2. Lamb sausage would be great way to use a fatty ground lamb. There are many recipes on the net

      1. Any of the middle eastern and Indian sub-continent kebabs benefit from fat.

          1. Make meatballs or lamb burgers!
