pork and lamb ragu

slow cooked pork and lamb ragu

I had a great big clear out of the freezer and unearthed heaps of lamb and pork. Great big lamb shanks and chunks of pork all solid as rock and crying to be used up.

That's the case with this lamb and veg pie, made … Continue Reading ››

This recipe is a take on a boulangere, potatoes simmered in stock. Made with leftover roast lamb coated in Lea & Perrins what else could I call it but "L&P", lamb & potatoes. It could be made just as well with beef and slipping a few bits of veg in there wouldn't go amiss. I served mine with peas in mint butter, and a blob of pickled red cabbage. I'm not sure I don't ever have a bottle of Lea … Continue Reading ››
