These are such a delicious option to eat especially if you don’t eat lamb for ethical reasons. Mutton has a richer flavor and since it is older sheep or goat, takes a little extra time to cook.  Some people cook it by sautéing it in a frying pan, I prefer to sear it and bake it. This way I can throw some veggies in the pan and I have a whole meal ready.
