Lamb with Gremolata

Ingredients

 

  • 30ml oil

  • 4 small whole lamb shanks

  • 4 lemon leaves

  • 1 fennel bulb, chopped

  • 2 medium carrots, chopped

  • 2 leeks, chopped

  • 1 whole garlic bulb, top cut off

  • 150ml white wine

  • Mashed potatoes to serve

Instructions

Heat the oil and fry the shanks on all sides until brown. Remove and place them in an ovenproof dish. Make a small incision in each shank and press a lemon leaf into each one. In the same pan, stir-fry the vegetables until translucent. Add the wine and cook for 2 minutes, scraping the bottom of the pan to loosen any browned bits. Add this sauce and the garlic bulb to the meat and pour in the vegetable stock. Put the lid on or cover the dish with foil and place in the oven for about 2-3 hours, depending on the size of the shanks; the meat should be tender and flake easily without falling off the bone completely. Ideally, you should prepare the shanks the day before and allow them to cool down in the oven after it has been switched off – then simply reheat them just before serving.

Saucy Lamb Bolognese

Ingredients

 

  • 500g fettucini

  • 500g lamb mince

  • 1 onion, finely chopped

Bunny Chow

Ingredients

 

  • Dash of oil

  • 1 onion - finely chopped

  • Pinch masala or hot curry powder

  • 1 Tsp chilli powder

  • 500g boneless lamb or mutton - cut into cubes or strips

  • 3 cloves garlic - crushed or chopped

  • 1 Tsp fresh ginger - finely chopped or grated

  • 1 can chopped tomatoes

  • 2 potatoes - cut into small cubes

  • 2 carrots - cut into slices

  • 1/2 Tsp sugar

  • 1 Tsp salt

  • 1/2 Tsp black pepper

  • 1 loaf fresh white bread - uncut

  • 2 fresh tomatoes - sliced

  • 1 punnet fresh coriander leaves - to serve

Instructions

 

Heat the oil in a potjie over a medium-hot fire and fry the onion for about 5 minutes until it becomes soft. Then add the masala and (optional) chilli powder and fry for 1–2 minutes until the pan becomes sticky. If the potjie starts to burn, add a very little bit of water – but only do this if it’s really necessary.
Add the meat, garlic and ginger, and stir-fry for about 1 minute. Throw in the tinned tomatoes, chopped potatoes and carrots, sugar, salt and pepper, then stir, scraping the bottom of the potjie with your spoon to loosen any and all sticky bits. Cover with a lid and simmer over medium-low coals for about 30 minutes, stirring now and again so that the bottom of the potjie doesn’t burn. If it does burn, it means your potjie is too dry.  Add a bit of water to rectify this but go easy. After 30 minutes, take off the lid and stick a fork into the potatoes to make sure they’re cooked through. As soon as the potatoes are soft, the meal is essentially ready. Cook uncovered for a few minutes to allow the sauce to become a thick gravy. As soon as this happens the curry is ready, so take the potjie off the fire. Taste and adjust with a bit of extra salt if it needs it. Cut the loaf of bread into quarters and then scoop or cut out the centres of each quarter loaf, essentially creating a ‘bowl’ of bread for the curry. Fill the hole of each quarter loaf with the curry and sauce. Serve the scooped out bread centre and a salad of tomato and fresh coriander leaves on the side.

Cook on a constant, medium indirect fire for 45 minutes for medium rare. You want to go to an hour for well done, but it will tend to be dry. Allow to rest before slicing. Make the tzatziki by grating the cucumber and mixing it with the yoghurt, mint and garlic. Slice the whole lamb and place it on a board with the tzatziki, rocket, hummus and roughly chopped sundried tomatoes so everyone can make their own lamb pitas. It’s a nice communal thing to do.
