Braised Lamb with Radishes and Mint

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.

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
