Grilled Sheep Tails

Grilled Sheep Tails – please do not be freaked out. They are beyond delicious. Of course if they are cooked the correct way. Grilled Sheep tails are normally eaten around Spring, when  sheeps’ tails are removed for a very good reason. You can read all about that here. As much as I would like to […]

Greek Lamb Chops

Greek Lamb Chops with Mint Pesto – quick stix and dinner is served. We had Greek Lamb Chops with Mint Pesto and golden oven-baked potato wedges for dinner last night. I missed out, because unexpected quests arrived, but from the family’s reaction, it is good! Very good! So, what makes the lamb chops Greek? Well, […]

Lipsmacking Lamb Ribs

Lipsmacking Lamb ribs made with my all purpose spice mix, definitely a winner every time. Eating these Lipsmacking Lamb Ribs, you need little more than a wedge of lemon and a warm cloth (jammer lappie) to get the dripping fat off your face and hands. Yesterday I posted a recipe for my All Purpose Spice […]

Vetkoek with Lamb

Vetkoek with Lamb is as South African as Braaivleis and the beloved Madiba. I think we all grew up with warm, spongy vetkoek stuffed with just about anything. Vetkoek with Lamb is the perfect partner for a bowl of steaming hot soup and with winter knocking at our doors, I can think of no better […]

tomato stew

Tomato stew in summer? Stews are for winter when it is cold and miserable outside and you want something to enjoy in front of a warm fire place! Tomato Stew is  my all time favorite stew! I love stews, curry, bean stew, lamb stew and the South African Classic Waterblommetjie Stew! I am somewhat ashamed […]

Easy Lamb shanks – it is even better with a pastry crust!

easy lamb shanks

Easy Lamb shanks on creamy mashed potatoes or even buttery samp is very hard to beat as typical winter food! Easy Lamb shanks, yes, but it has become quite a pricey cut of meat, so I make it for special occasions and then we splash out and enjoy the luxury! I love cooking lamb shanks, […]

Roast lamb on the table at Easter for us is such a wonderful tradition yet it seems like quite a controversial thing to do. This morning while reading up on the tradition to serve roast lamb over Easter, I felt like I have just kicked over a can or worms. Roast lamb on Easter? Wow, […]

Moussaka – a healthier, lighter and easier version of this Greek Classic!

moussaka

Moussaka is one of those recipes that you either love or hate. Sad thing is, I hated it  as a child. The “slimey stuff ” ( my childhood name for eggplant) and the texture of the mince just never gelled for me. Moussaka did not appeal to me, because although I believe that bechamel sauce […]

Lamb Burgers – mini in size, maxi in flavor!

Posted on September 24, 2012 by in lamb

We had these mini lamb burgers with Mediterranean hummus as a pre-run for National Braai Day which was today 24 September. I was in JHB at the Good Food and Wine show so Braai Day in a way happened without me today. Luckily I can as a true South African,  slap a few chops and […]
