How should lamb be stored?

Michael T. Murray, ND
Naturopathic Medicine

Like other perishable red meat, lamb should be stored cold or frozen and can be kept in the store packaging if it has not been compromised. Ground lamb has a refrigerated shelf life of two days, while lamb chops and roasts may be stored in a cold part of the refrigerator for three to five days. To freeze lamb, it is best to wrap it snugly in aluminum foil or freezer paper. Ground lamb will keep for three to four months, while roasts and chops will remain fresh for six to nine months
