It depends on where you get them. A Greek restaurant near us uses lamb and beef but it can also be made from chicken or pork.

Thanks! I think I will marinate, roll/tie, then roast. I want to make sure the potatoes are done, the asparagus will roast faster than it takes me to make the hollandaise.

This sounds so good. I'm craving lamb now.

Does anyone have any tips for using leftover lamb?

I buy chops once in a while, but I tend tend to shy away from the roasts because I just don't know how to use the leftovers.

I once made crepes with the leftover lamb and did a feta cream sauce to go over them. It got good reviews.

If there is a lot, I will turn it into a stew with barley. Other than that, I will make open faced sandwiches with leftover gravy over it. Slice some of it and toss it into the freezer later for sandwiches.

Leftover lamb? I'm not familiar with that concept.

Seriously, I like lamb-wiches made with pita bread and some of that Greek tzatziki sauce. Add a cucumber-tomato salad on the side and you have a good meal.

Easter's a big holiday for us. We're having at least 13 people over tomorrow for dinner, with lamb and ham on the menu. My father-in-law steadfastly refuses to even try lamb, but this is the same man who travels to Mexico every year and refuses to eat anything but tacos.

I love lamb sandwiches, tzaziki or mayo, lettuce and tomato. I always end up thinking of that part in the Princess Bride when Billy Crystal (spelling?) is talking about an MLT. :)

Occasionally I'll get lamb ribs when.the market runs them for 2.99 or 2.49/lb. They're pretty fatty so I trim some of the fat off. One time I rendered a bit, mixed it in with really lean ground beef and made meatballs. Man, were they ever good!

lamb, leg of lamb, other, recipe

Favourite Leg of Lamb recipe? I just bought a bone-in leg of lamb, it was on special for $11/kg. It's almost 2 kg (~4.4 lbs). I looked at a lot of old posts about lamb and lamb recipes here on DC. I cooked a leg of lamb once before, on a charcoal grill. There was some sort of marinade. It was good, but nothing special. At over $20 for a chunk of meat, I want special. :lol: Recommendations? I'm not up for charcoal grilling it and even if I was, I don't think my hibachi is big enough. I have plenty of fresh rosemary and mint, as well as fresh dill, parsley, thyme, and oregano. 3 stars 1 reviews
