Lamb Pinwheels

The Lamb Pinwheels are a breeze to make if you know and respect your new found best friend….. the butcher. In my case, my new found butcher is Klein Merino. Klein Merino is in Beaufort West, but they have an extensive delivery service into Cape Town. So orders in by Monday and meat delivered by Thursday. I love it! You can email Klein Merino for a price list:

So I ordered the deboned lambsrib, which is stuffed with boerewors stuffing and rolled into a perfect roast. The butcher did it all for me! Yeah! I of course had other plans, so my dad cut the roast in 1.5 cm rolls and I skewered the rolls onto wooden skewers. Yes, you can do a Sunday roast. Just roast in a casserole for 1h30 min at 180 C. Our idea was so cool, I mean where else will you get your chop and sausage in the same mouthful.

The stuffing is already seasoned so go easy on the spices. We did a little salt, pepper and lemon.

serves 4-6

Ask the butcher to tie the lamb roll with 2.5 cm between each string. Use a very sharp knife and cut in between each piece of string so that you have 2 cm thick pinwheels. Use a wooden skewer to secure the ends of the pinwheel. Seson the meat with salt, pepper and lemon juice. Bring the coals to medium heat and braai until brown on the outside and still pink on the inside.

To all my readers, followers, critics and loved ones.

May 2018 be kind to you.

May you be kind to yourself and others.

May love ( in whatever form) find you worthy

“And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.”
