    Indo-Greek 9-Hour Slow-Cooked Lamb

    Prep Time

    • Prep time: 20 minutes
    • Cook time: 9 hours
    • Yield: Serves 6-8

    Ingredients

    • 2 kilo (approxinately 4.5 pounds) lamb shoulder, bone-in

    Spice rub:

    • 3 whole dried bay leaves
    • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
    • 1 teaspoon dried wild oregano (available at Greek and European deli’s, please use this rather than ordinary dried oregano as the flavour is superior)
    • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
    • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
    • 1/4 teaspoon black peppercorns
    • salt to taste
    • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
    2 tablespoons macadamia oil
    • drizzle of olive oil at the end of cooking time

    Method

    1. Wash the lamb shoulder and pat dry with kitchen towel. Make deep slashes about one inch in several areas over the joint so that you can rub the marinade into the meat. Place the lamb into a non-reactive casserole, ideally an enamelled cast iron pan.
    2. In a spice grinder, grind the bay leaves, garlic powder, wild oregano, thyme, fennel seeds and black peppercorns until everything is a fine powder. Combine this with the red wine vinegar and macadamia oil.
    3. Salt the lamb well, then pour the marinade over the meat, making sure you rub the marinade into the slashes. Cover the casserole in a sheet of foil, then place the lid over it tightly.
    4. Leave the lamb shoulder in the marinade in the fridge overnight.
    5. The next day preheat the oven to 125˚C (approximately 250˚F). Cook the lamb for 8 hours covered in the casserole pan, then remove the lid and foil. Turn the oven up to 200˚C (approximately 390˚F) and cook the lamb for a further 60 minutes, basting every 15 minutes. This will reduce the juices and caramelise the meat.
    6. When cooked, shred the flesh loosely and drizzle olive oil over before serving. Serve with lemon wedges and lots of salad. (This lamb tastes amazing with a Greek salad or an Indian raita alike.)

    Easy Lamb Chops Recipe

    Tender, flavorful lamb chops don't get any easier than these lamb loin chops marinated in herbs, garlic, and lemon juice, then roasted in the oven, for an easy lamb chops recipe that cooks in about 15 minutes. Feel free to use fresh or dried herbs for this recipe. Add at least 1 hour and 20 minutes to the prep time to include time to marinate in the fridge and then come to room temperature.

    Prep Time

        •    Prep time: 15 minutes
        •    Cook time: 15 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 4

    Ingredients

        •    1 tsp sea salt
        •    2 tbsps olive oil
        •    1/4 cup lemon juice
        •    1 tsp rosemary leaves
        •    4 inch lamb loin chops
        •    1 dash cayenne pepper
        •    2 tsps finely chopped garlic about 4 cloves

    Method

    1. Mix ingredients, except for lamb, in a bowl.
    2. Place the chops in a zip top bag and pour ingredients over chops. Seal the bag, after squeezing the air out, and squish the bag around to get the chops well covered on both sides.
    3. Let marinate in the fridge overnight. The longer the better, but give them at least one hour.
    4. Remove the chops and let them come to room temperature (approximately 20 minutes) before cooking.
    5. While the chops sit out, move an oven rack to the top position beneath the broiler, and preheat the oven on broil.
    6. Place the chops (with the marinade) in a single layer in an oven proof skillet, and place the skillet in the oven directly beneath the broiler.
    7. Broil for 5-8 minutes on each side, using tongs to flip the chops, until they are seared on the outside and register around 145 degrees with a meat thermometer.
    8. Drizzle with the pan juices before serving.

        •    1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
        •    1 28-ounce can whole San Marzano tomatoes, crushed by hand


    For the sliders:

        •    24 slider rolls
        •    1/8 tsp dried oregano

    Method

    1. Make the meatballs: Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.
