Even with a family of voracious meat lovers enjoying your delicious organic lamb roast, you may find from time to time that there is a bit left over.
Instead of just tucking it away in the fridge and hoping someone finishes it sooner or later, you can make your leftovers go further by using them to cook up an entirely new dish.
Your family will appreciate your resourcefulness and creativity as you treat them to a range of different meals with just one batch of meat!
Here are some ways you can make the most of any remainders.
For a completely different take on the traditional lamb roast, you can add a bit of Asian flair to your next dinner by using the leftovers in a lamb curry.
Simply dice up the meat into small chunks and cook with your favourite Indian sauce.
You have such diverse choices here, from the spiciness of a vindaloo to the more mild and buttery flavours of a madras.
Leftover lamb can also be used as the filling for a fantastic Shepherd’s Pie – and it’s a great opportunity to get the kids to eat some veggies too!
Chop the meat into small portions and mix it in with healthy servings of carrots, potatoes and any other vegetables you can fit in.
Once the pie is baked, sprinkle some cheese on top to add the perfect finish.
A stew is a great option for leftover lamb if you really want it to last, and is also a good way to incorporate any spare vegetables lying around.
Onions, peas and carrots work well for a good Irish stew, with a bit of parsley to top it all off.
