Lamb with Mustard !!!!

Good Morning my friends!

Have you ever tasted lamb? Here in Greece, lamb is one of our favorite meats to eat especially on Easter. Very clean and very tasteful. But as every meat we have to not over do it with the quantity…. Yeap I know…tough…
 Anyway, last Sunday I cooked lamb with potatoes and it was really delicious. I am not going to point out the quantity of each ingredient, since it is something that you can decide by yourself!

So what are we going to use…
- lamb ( I used almost 750gr for 2 and a half people… my daughter counts as half)
- 5 potatoes
- Mustard
3-4 garlic clove
Olive oil
1 big lemon
- Origan or thyme


Clean the lamb and add on salt and pepper. Leave it for fifteen minutes to marinate. Add the mustard on the lamb and leave it again for another fifteen minutes. Your meat is ready to be cooked.

 Clean the potatoes, cut them in pieces and add salt on them. Put them on a large baking pan.

Put the meat above them or in the middle. Chop up the garlic and add it too.

In a glass add the olive oil, the lemon juice and more mustard and mix them. Add the mix to the food. For more aroma in your plate and of course unique taste, we will use  origan or thyme! Finally add a small glass of water.

Cover the baking pan with aluminium paper and put it in the oven in low temperature ( for example on 150oC) for at least one and a half hour.  

Remove the aluminium and slightly increase the temperature. Your food is ready to be served when the potatoes and the meat are soft.

Buon appetite.

  2. Oh how I miss lamb! My grandfather and my dad raised sheep so I grew up on it. I see it in the markets here now & then but it's pretty pricey. My grandma used to serve lamb roast with mint jelly, though that's about all I remember lol. Lamb burger and chops were my favorites though. :)Thanks for bringing back the memory!
