Lamb Carnitas Tacos

We just heard back from the lamb folks… and unfortunately our most awesome Barbacoa Lamb didn’t win. The winning recipe for DC involves Indian spice and sounds pretty good. Thats ok, we still love lamb and had a blast. It was a seriously good recipe and you should try it. However, it wasn’t the only [...]

Lamb Supper Club: The B-Side

Lamb is of course the focus of our Lamb Supper Clubs. However, the apps, sides, desserts and drinks have all been getting more and more elaborate each time.

Lamb Supper Club: Braised Lamp Shank

I suppose it is only appropriate that the Tri-Lamb Group arranged for three Lamb Suppers. I am sad that we have reached the end though. Unlike the Godfather, the final chapter of this trilogy may have been the best! The Braised Lamb Shank is an excellent winter recipe. The dish is warming and hearty, and [...]

Lamb Salad with Arugula and Gorgonzola

So what do you do with the leftovers from making an entire leg of lamb… Lamb salad! Lamb has a pretty strong flavor so you need a salad that can stand up to it. We went with Arugula for the greens. Spinach or perhaps something like mustard greens. We also added gorgonzola and red onions. [...]

Garlic, Rosemary Roast Leg of Lamb

Some dishes take a little chutzpah to pull off. I think large roasts fall in this category. First off, buying a large enough amount of meat to roast usaully cost a lot of money. Secondly, when you make a roast you are usaully making it for a lot of people. This means if you mess [...]
