    Recipe Iranian style lamb stew with celery (koresht karafs)

    Iranian stews often use lots of fresh green herbs as well as dried spices to produce a deep flavoured ‘gravy’. Most recipes using celery cook the celery for a rather long time in the stew but I wanted to preserve the colour, so cooked it separately, initially. You don’t have to do this, but I...

    Has anyone ever smoked lamb?

    I'm thinking of smoking this leg of lamb I've had in the freezer for awhile (or having hubby do it) sometime soon. Any thoughts or input on seasoning, etc.?

    Where Did I Go Wrong with My Lamb?

    I cooked lamb for Easter dinner today - an Orlando Murrin recipe from BBC Good Food. I cooked the same recipe with great success about a month ago. The only difference this time is that instead of using a cheap £10 leg of lamb from the supermarket, I used a £45 leg from an award-winning local...

    Lamb sausage, goat cheese and herb risotto balls (arancini) Arancini - Wikipedia Arancini derives from the Sicilian plural diminutive of aranciu ('orange'), from their shape and colour which, after cooking, is reminiscent of an orange.[3] This is my spin on arancini, an Italian snack food that...

    Recipe Lamb sausage pita bites

    I used the lamb sausage I made Sunday night into a nifty, super-easy appetizer. It's a spin on Greek gyros, using pita bread, feta cheese, homemade tzatziki (with dill, garlic, cucumber, sea salt, lemon juice, olive oil, parsley, and Greek yogurt), roasted roma tomato slivers, and of course the...

    Recipe Herbed lamb sausage (no casings)

    I adore the delicate texture and flavor of lamb. I acquired a taste for lamb just over the past few years, and I enjoy lamb the most marinated with olive oil, fresh herbs, citrus, roasted garlic, and balsamic vinegar. Some of my favorite herbs to use are parsley, sage, oregano, and thyme...

    Recipe Persian lamb stew

    I already had this dish on our menu before the potato challenge started because I've been trying to clean out our freezers and found 2 packages of large chucks of lamb of about 1.5 pounds each. So, I decided to post the recipe since the potatoes are placed so prettily and are a big part of the...

    Recipe Bell Peppers Stuffed with Lamb, Cabbage, Onion, Za'atar, Topped with Labne

    I aim for a Middle Eastern taste profile here. The lamb came from a local farmer. Labne is a Middle-Eastern / Persian dairy product very similar to yogurt (it has cultures, and probably listens to Mozart when it can). I find this at a Persian market in the Connecticut River valley. It...

    Recipe Lamb stuffed aubergine involtini

    This recipe is easier than it looks, especially if you use a pre-made tomato sauce. Its also quite economical. In the UK lamb is quite expensive and in this recipe a little goes a long way. Serve with boiled rice and perhaps a crisp green salad. Ingredients (serves 2) 2 medium aubergines...

    Recipe Greek Lamb Koftas

    Greek Lamb Kofta Ground beef is acceptable in this dish as well. Lamb is simply tastier. Ready for cooking. The lamb should hold onto skewers, whether metal or wood. Don’t over-manipulate. If you don't wish to do dairy for the dipping sauce, coconut yogurt works, too. Grilling on the...

We both love to cook and obviously she has a lot more experience than me and her food is great just she is old fashioned. First thing I said was will the leg and shoulder not need...

    Delicate dill adds a delicious flavour to the lamb in these cabbage rolls and the sharpness of the creamy lemon sauce is perfect with lamb. This recipe is quite easy to make as there is no chopping required. Most versions of this Greek inspired dish use a mix of meat and rice for the stuffing...
