Find out how to make sensational dishes in a few simple steps with succulent cuts of lamb.
These Greek-style meatballs are a real family favourite. You simply layer them in an ovenproof dish with tomato sauce, top with crumbled feta and bake for 15 minutes. There you have it.
Uncooked lamb fat is not very pleasant. I cook lamb chops on a griddle pan, starting them fat side down so the fat renders down and becomes crispy. I take a lot of trouble to cook the chops carefully on all sides, turning them often and moving them round the griddle.
There are times when you want to put together a meal as soon as possible. This quick ‘stew’ made with a Knorr Herb Infusion Pot is perfect for those times.
In my opinion, a lot of people make their shepherd’s pie too dry; I like mine quite wet. I also enrich my mashed potato with egg yolks to make the top nice and golden.
The key to cooking shoulder of lamb is to buy it on the bone. Once they take out the bone and roll it, it’s never the same. I also always cook it skin side down. Just roast it slowly, as it’s always best well done.
Lamb and flageolet beans are one of those great combinations. You don’t need a team of people or a kitchen full of equipment for this recipe. It’s just a roast leg of lamb with flageolet beans, garlic and cream. And that’s lunch. Very simple, very French.
This is a very easy recipe using lamb shanks, which I simmer slowly until the meat is so tender it’s falling off the bone. You can cook the lamb a day or so before, so all you have left to do is warm up the lamb and cook the vegetables. You can’t go wrong.
In summertime I like my food to be simple and light. This dish can be cooked on the barbecue or indoors. It’s my take on a classic roast lamb Sunday lunch, turned into the perfect meal for a sunny day when you don’t want to spend ages in a hot kitchen.
The tenderness of lamb makes it a perfect meat to use in slow-cooking and casseroles. With two or three vegetable ingredients and the right method of cooking, lamb can provide you with a hearty, delicious casserole in just over an hour.
