February is National Lamb Lovers Month and this sheep producer knows 6 great recipes that you can throw together fast in your crock pot and end up with a great tasting meal the whole family will enjoy. Ott, A here from the blog “a Latte’ with Ott, A” and I always try to encourage fellow moms to try lamb in their own kitchens. I think you’ll find you don’t have to be a french chef to add some variety to your evening meal plan. With these recipes you will have an easy way to prepare your lamb and have your family asking for seconds.
First up is Holiday Lamb Chops… now you don’t necessarily need a special occasion to serve lamb (it’s just the name of the recipe) but the combination of vegetables and lamb simmering in your crock pot will make this an easy one pot meal.
Next up… Mongolian Lamb BBQ.… if you like Asian food you will love the flavors in this dish with some oriental vegetables, pineapples and served over rice.
Third we have a recipe for lamb shanks with tomatoes and leeks. Serve this dish over mashed potatoes and you will have one warm and hearty meal for those cold winter nights.
In keeping with the lamb shank theme we have Slow Cooked Lamb Shanks with Rosemary and Sun Dried Tomatoes. The flavors of this recipe will remind you a lot of a tomato based pot roast.
Apricot Lamb Curry is a fun combination of flavors and one of the ingredients is wine.
And lastly, Shredded Leg of Lamb Sandwiches…. and trust me you will not be able to tell a difference between lamb or or beef with this recipe.
So there you have it 6 recipe to make with lamb. All are easy enough anyone can make them. All are made in the crock pot and all will get your family experience something new on the dinner table tonight.
