I love stir fry dinners because it’s not only easy but it’s also delicious too! This Lamb Stir Fry is one of these stir fries! Marinated sliced lamb stir fried with ginger, scallions and green peppers! What’s not to love?

What lamb to use for stir fry?

Now I do a life hack when I cook this dish and buy pre-sliced lamb from the hot pot section of my local Asian supermarket. However, if you are buying lamb and slicing it yourself, that is just fine too!

Here are some recommended cuts of lamb for stir frying:

Rump

The rump is an individual muscle cut from the hind leg of the lamb. It’s very tender and has a lot of flavor with a layer of fat too. This is a great cut for stir fries!

Tenderloin

Similar to beef tenderloin, lamb tenderloin is very tender and and also has a velvety texture. This cut is great for stir fries also!

Leg

The leg of lambs has is also a tender cut, and has a strong flavor. It’s great sliced or cubed – and also makes a great cut of lamb for stir fries.

How much lamb should I buy per person?

About 1/3 of a pound of boneless lamb is a good amount per person. Technically one serving is 3 oz per person, but I haven’t met anyone that ate 3 oz and thought that was enough (unless there were other dishes involved).

How many calories is in lamb stir fry?
