Michelle's Roast Chicken
This is my own invention. Since this is an Asian influenced dish, it goes well with a bed of steaming rice rather than bread. I like to serve this with some sliced cucumber and a light chicken soup/broth. You can carve the bones off and cut the chicken into small pieces before serving or simply serve it whole (and let others do the carving for you!) It doesn't need any sauce at all. You can save the juice from baking for stir fry other green vegetables or as a dipping sauce for those who like a stronger taste!
This is a wonderful steak dish that was prepared for me when I lived in Argentina. This Argentinean steak dish is quite popular in various restaurants around Buenos Aires.

A hearty, savory slow cooker stew with potatoes, carrots, celery, broth, herbs and spices. You won't be slow to say 'yum'!
Roast Leg of Lamb
Cooking peeled potatoes in the pan around the roast is yummy. The only other things you need are gravy made from the pan drippings and a fresh vegetable.
Rosemary Braised Lamb Shanks
Lamb shanks are slowly simmered with fresh rosemary, garlic, tomatoes, and red wine. Great served with polenta, or my family's favorite--roasted garlic mashed potatoes--as you need something to soak up the wonderful sauce. A fantastic dish for company, as all the prep work is done at the beginning, and then you just have to wait.
Roast Leg of Lamb with Rosemary
This leg of lamb is marinated overnight with fresh rosemary, garlic, mustard, honey and lemon zest. Be prepared for many requests for seconds!
Here is a great recipe for moussaka, a Greek dish. It includes sliced eggplant baked in a ground beef sauce and then smothered in a thin white sauce.
Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction
This recipe for lamb chops is a favorite in my house. It is an easy and quick recipe for two people (we eat two chops each). Rosemary and thyme give it great flavor. If you double the recipe, remember that the sauce will take longer to reduce.
