A Hefty Steak That's Light Enough for August

Lean and meaty, a center-cut lamb leg steak is done in minutes, and makes a rustic-yet-elegant meal paired with an olive relish.

'Itís a shame Americans donít eat much lamb, as in summer, it is especially delicious grilled.

Of all the various cuts of lamb, most can be made into chops. Some, like rib chops (from the rack) or loin chops (which look like miniature T-bone steaks), are expensive, but there are cheaper options, like shoulder and sirloin chops.

Among those reasonably priced chops is the lean, meaty center-cut leg steak. A thick slice with a round bone in the center, it is the easiest to prepare, especially compared with a butterflied whole boneless leg, which can be difficult to cook evenly and carve. Just ask your butcher to cut one for you if there isnít one on display: She will happily oblige.'>>>

1. I have never seen lamb in a grocery store.

Maybe some store like Publix might carry it, but Winn-Dixie, used to be known for its meat, never saw lamb. And certainly food Lion, albertson's, Safeway etc back in the day.

2. WOW, but what do I know?

I've been northeast-ish forever.

I suspect my folks found lamb in Florida, Publix likely, as lamb was one of Dad's favorites.

3. I figured it had to be found somewhere in the US..

Beef and fish are big sellers on the West Coast, and pork/chicken big here in the South. It isn't that people around here don't eat beef, it is just that chicken is much less expensive.

I remember as a kid that "lamb at Easter" was sort of a thing, but the marketing word was "veal"and as an adult I sometimes thought about tracking it down for a taste test.
I still have fantasies of taking that 4 hour trek to Mobile and back to do a splurge shopping at Publix, and "Fresh Market" which is kinda of Whole Foods mets Trader Joe's.

Damn...I miss trader Joe's.
