Stuffed Leg of Lamb

Rating: 4.5 stars 33
Rolled leg of lamb stuffed with spinach, goat's cheese and pine nuts. Suggested: Serve with Brussels sprouts cooked in butter and fresh garlic. A scrumptious Irish cuisine that is sure to please!

Braised Lamb with Radishes and Mint

Rating: 4.5 stars 21
In this Basque-inspired braised lamb shoulder, the radishes that are cooked with the lamb absorb the other flavors in the dish. I really hope you give this strange, but exciting braised lamb dish a try soon.

Garlic and Herb Lamb

Rating: 4.5 stars 65
A quick and easy rosemary rub that truly draws out the succulent flavor of lamb. Works on chops or leg of lamb.

Rack of Lamb with Strawberry Mint Sauce

Rating: 5 stars 9
As far as mint sauces go, I love experimenting with new ideas, especially around Easter time, and I really liked how this came out. The combination of the sweet-savory sauce and the Dijon crumb crust complemented the lamb perfectly.

Lemon and Thyme Lamb Chops

Rating: 4 stars 53
Drag that grill out of storage for spring grilling! Make extra marinade to use on grilled vegetables. Serve with a mint sauce and warmed flatbread.
