LOVE YOUR LEFTOVERS LAMB
See page 61 for ideas, or search ‘leftover lamb curry’ on bbcgoodfood.com – whip up a chunky shepherd’s pie or lamb tagine.
If you’ve made our cover recipe on page 28 or you’re simply planning to roast lamb over the holidays, you’re bound to be left with some cold cuts. Here are three ways to get the best from them.
Bubble & squeak shepherd’s pie
Finely chop or blitz any leftover lamb and mix with any leftover gravy, then tip into a dish. Squash together any vegetables left over from your roast, or make some mash and use to top the meat and gravy. Bake until crisp and piping hot.
Cheat’s shawarma-style lamb
Mix 2 tsp garam masala with 1 tsp turmeric and 1 tsp smoked paprika. Finely slice the leftover lamb and fry until crisp, then add the spice mix and continue to cook until well coated and heated through. Serve in wraps, or with rice or couscous.
Leftover lamb larb
Finely chop or shred any leftover lamb and mix with sweet chilli sauce, lime juice, chopped spring onions and some finely chopped garlic. Serve in lettuce cups, scattered with crushed peanuts and coriander leaves.
