The flavor of lamb is often characterized as tender and mild, with a hint of gaminess. The tenderness of lamb meat is a result of its youth, as younger animals tend to have more tender flesh compared to older ones. If your family is trying lamb for the first time, slow cooker lamb stew is the perfect meal.
