This recipe is a wonderful way to use any leftover lamb (specifically from the Herb-Roasted Boneless Leg of Lamb that we posted last week).  It is very easy to prepare, and it tastes refreshing and light.  I love the Mediterranean flavors of these pita pockets.  If you try this recipe, you can experience the taste of the Mediterranean too!

Bon Appetit!

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 1/2 cup chopped romaine lettuce

This awesome recipe comes from the March 2014 edition of Southern Living, and it is excellent!  This recipe is a lot easier than it looks, and the results are spectacular.  The lamb was tender and done to perfection, while the herbs added a delightful flavor to the meat.  The potatoes that you cook with the lamb are simple, but flavorful.  They compliment the meat.  April is an excellent time to give this delicious lamb roast a try.  It is especially good if you are entertaining guests.  This would make a wonderful holiday meal (whether for Easter, a birthday, or even mother's day).  If you do have leftovers, look for the lamb pita pockets on our blog.  It will be posted this month too.

Bon Appetit

Tips:

I had a hard time finding a boneless leg of lamb.  The butcher at a local grocery store, kindly removed the bone and trimmed the lamb for me.  He even gave me the bone (to make soup stock).  So if you have the same problem of finding boneless lamb,...

Have you been looking for a good lamb stew?  Look no further!  You found it.  I love the simplicity of this rustic dish.  It also has amazing savory flavors that are hard to resist!  Serve this classic stew with Irish soda bread (our next blog post), and you will have a hearty delicious meal that will get you warm in no time.

Bon Appetit!

Tips: 

Plan ahead!  Read through the recipe before you begin cooking.  The directions call for an oven proof Dutch oven (6 quart).  If you do not have an oven proof Dutch oven, you can transfer the meat and veggies to a baking dish after you are done cooking them on the stove top, and then continue as directed.  Save the pot you cooked the meat and veggies in previously, because you will need it again to finish off the stew.

This stew can be made a day ahead.  The flavor will get even better over time!

Ingredients:

  • 1 and 1/2 pounds lamb stew meat

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 3 large onions, quartered
