Lamb Braised in Milk with Fennel Ingredients
1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 1/2 pounds boneless lamb shoulder, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
- Salt and pepper
- 1 fennel bulb, diced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
- 1 teaspoon fennel seeds, crushed (use mortar and pestle, or chop finely with a chef’s knife)
- 2 cups milk
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1 sprig rosemary
- 2 cups farro (can substitute brown rice)
How to make Lamb Braised in Milk with Fennel
- In a large (5 to 6 quart) thick-bottomed Dutch oven, heat 2 Tbsp of olive oil on medium high. Pat dry the lamb pieces. Season well with salt and pepper. Working in batches, place lamb pieces in the pan (do not crowd). Do not stir. Turn only once a side has browned. Brown all sides. Remove from pan and set aside.
- Reduce heat in pan to medium. Add remaining 2 Tbsp olive oil. Add the diced fennel and cook a few minutes until softened, scraping up any browned bits from the pan. Add the garlic and crushed fennel seeds.
- Add the meat back into the pot. Add the milk and cream. Bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low, add the sprig of rosemary, cover. Cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours until meat is tender.
- While the lamb is cooking, prepare the farro (or brown rice). The farro will take about 45 minutes to cook, after which it can be kept warm, so time accordingly. Rinse farro through a sieve until the water runs clear. Add it to a large, thick-bottomed saucepan. Cover with about two inches of water and add about a tablespoon of salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a low simmer, partially cover and let cook for 45 minutes or until tender. Drain of excess water and set aside until you are ready to use it.
- Once the lamb is tender, remove the pieces from the pot and set aside. Discard the rosemary. Bring the milk cream sauce to a boil over high heat and reduce to about 2 cups. Working in batches, purée in a blender (or with an immersion blender) until smooth. (When puréeing hot liquids in a blender it’s best to work with relatively small amounts, filling just maybe a quarter of the blender. Otherwise the pressure can blow the top off the blender and make a hot mess.) Return the sauce and the lamb to the pot and if needed heat until warm through. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Before serving, stir in the fresh chopped parsley.
- Serve the braised lamb over warm farro.

Irish Lamb Stew with a Twist Ingredients
2 1/2 pounds lamb shoulder or shoulder blade chops, bone-in, trimmed of excess fat
- 6 slices bacon, thickly cut
- 2 pounds potatoes (Yukon gold preferred), peeled, quartered
- 2 large onions, quartered
- 2 large carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch segments
- 1 turnip, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
- 2 heaping tablespoons pearl barley (omit for gluten-free version)
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1 quart of water or lamb stock, warmed
How to make Irish Lamb Stew with a Twist
- Heat a large (6-quart), thick-bottomed Dutch oven on medium heat. Layer the bacon on the bottom of the pan and cook the slices gently, a few minutes on each side, until much of the fat has been rendered out, and the slices have browned lightly. Place the cooked bacon strips on a paper-towel-lined plate to absorb the excess fat. Chop the bacon and set aside.
- Remove all but 2 tablespoons of bacon fat from the pan (do not pour the removed fat down the drain or it will clog the drain pipes). Increase the heat to medium high. Working in batches as to not crowd the pan, brown the lamb pieces on all sides, taking care not to stir the lamb pieces so they can get sufficiently browned.
- 3 Arrange the meat and vegetables in the pan in layers. Start first with a layer of lamb, then add a layer of potatoes, onions, turnips, carrots, and chopped bacon. Add another layer of lamb and then another of vegetables. Add the barley, thyme, black pepper and a teaspoon of salt. Add water or stock to the pot, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a bare simmer. Let simmer, covered, but with the lid slightly ajar, for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, until the meat is fork tender and falling off the bones.
- Skim any excess fat from the stew. Use tongs to pick out and remove bones. Adjust seasonings, adding salt and pepper to taste.

Grilled Butterflied Leg of Lamb Ingredients
- 4 cloves garlic, peeled
- 2 Tbsp fresh rosemary leaves, or 1 Tbsp dried
- Zest of 1 lemon
- 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1 boneless leg of lamb, 5 to 6 pounds, butterflied
How to make Grilled Butterflied Leg of Lamb
- Put onion, garlic, rosemary, lemon zest, apple cider vinegar, and olive oil into a food processor and pulse to combine. (If you don’t have a food processor, just chop the onions, garlic, and rosemary very well and combine with the rest.)
- Sprinkle a generous amount of salt and pepper over the lamb. Place marinade and lamb into a 1-gallon freezer bag. Spread marinade over all sides of the meat. Seal the bag and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
- Remove lamb from refrigerator and let come to room temperature (about 20 minutes). When ready to put on grill, remove from marinade bag. To help make the lamb easier to turn on the grill you can insert a couple of skewers through the lamb, crosswise. (A tip learned from Rick Rodgers in Kingsford Complete Grilling Cookbook.)
- Prepare grill. If you are using a charcoal grill, prepare the coals so that they are double layered on one side of the grill, and sparsely single layered on the other side of the grill (this is called “banked” grilling). If you are using a gas grill, heat the grill on high on all burners to start. After the initial browning you will reduce the heat.
- Place the lamb, fat side down, on the grill on the hot side (double layer charcoals). You will get likely get flareups, so be prepared with a squirt bottle of water or a couple of cups of water (if using a charcoal grill) to control the flames if needed. (My brother Matt swears by shaking the bottle of beer he is drinking to squirt some beer on the coals when needed for flareups.) Sear one side for 4 minutes, then flip the lamb over to sear the other side for another 4 minutes. Then, if you are using a charcoal grill, move the roast to the less hot side of the grill. If you are using a gas grill, lower the heat to low. You will want to maintain a temperature of 300-350°F. Cover the grill and let cook for an additional 35-45 minutes (depending on how thick, and how many pounds the roast is), until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the roast registers 130°F (for medium rare).
- Transfer to a cutting board with a well to catch the juices. Cover with aluminum foil and let rest for 5-10 minutes. Remove the skewers if you are using any. Cut across the grain, 1/4 to 1/2-inch thick slices. Serve slices on a warm platter; pour meat juices over the slices. Serve with mint jelly or horseradish.

Greek Meatballs Ingredients
4 slices white bread, torn into pieces
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 onion, quartered
- 4 teaspoons dried mint
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ground black pepper to taste
- 1/2 pound ground beef
- 1/2 pound ground lamb
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour for dredging
- vegetable oil for frying
How to make Greek Meatballs
- Moisten the bread pieces with the milk in a large bowl, and set aside. Mince the garlic in a food processor, then add the onion, mint, salt, and pepper. Process
until the onion is finely chopped. Add the onion mixture to the bowl with the moist
bread, along with the beef, lamb, and eggs. Mix with your hands until thoroughly
- Roll the mixture into balls measuring 1 1/2 to 2 inches in diameter. Place the
flour in a shallow pan, and roll the balls in the flour to coat. Shake off any excess
flour, and place the meatballs onto a plate or baking sheet, pressing to flatten
slightly. This will keep them from rolling away.
- Heat 1 inch of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the meatballs, 8 or 10 at a time, and cook until nicely browned on the outside, and no longer pink in the center, about 10 minutes; drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Repeat with remaining meatballs.

Classic Rack of Lamb Ingredients
1 or more Frenched lamb rib racks with 7 to 8 ribs each (1 1/2 to 2 pounds for each rack, figure each rack feeds 2-3 people)
For each rib rack:
- 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
- 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
How to make Classic Rack of Lamb
- Rub rib rack(s) all over with mixture of rosemary, thyme, and garlic. Sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper. Place in a thick plastic bag with olive oil. Spread oil around so that it coats the lamb rack(s) all over. Squeeze out as much air as you can from the bag and seal. Place in a container so that if the bag leaks, the container catches the leak. If you want, place in the refrigerator overnight. Or, if you are not marinating overnight, let lamb rack(s) sit in the rub marinade as it comes to room temperature before cooking.
- Remove lamb rack from refrigerator to 1-2 hours before you cook it so that it comes to room temp. (If the meat is not at room temperature it will be hard for it to cook evenly.)
- Preheat oven to 400°F, arrange the oven rack so that the lamb will be in the middle of the oven. Score the fat, by making sharp shallow cuts through the fat, spaced about an inch apart. Sprinkle the rack all over with salt and pepper. Place the lamb rack bone side down (fat side up) on the pan. Wrap the exposed ribs in a little foil so that they don’t burn.
- Roast at 400°F for 7 minutes, then lower the heat to 300°F. Cook for 7-15 minutes longer (depending on the size of the lamb rack, or one of the lamb racks if you are cooking more than one), until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat 125°F on a for rare or 135°F for medium rare. Remove from oven, cover with foil and let rest for 5-10 minutes.
- Cut lamb chops away from the rack by slicing between the bones. Serve 2-3 chops per person.
