Here are a selection of recipes made using our mutton and lamb. We’d love to hear how you cook yours, your recipe may even make it to this page!

 

Slow Roasted Mutton

You can use either leg or shoulder here, it is so tender it melts in your mouth.

Slow roasted mutton leg

You want to cook for 40 minutes per 450g, our mutton joints are around 2.5kg, so you’re looking at a cooking time of about 4 hours.

Place the joint in a roasting tin, pop a couple of sprigs of rosemary on top and pour a good slosh of red wine or stout into the tin. Cover with foil and roast at 150°C. Remove the foil for the last half hour of cooking. Serve with all the trimmings of a roast dinner.

 

 

Lancashire Hotpot

My favourite all-in-one lamb dish, it’s easy peasy to prepare and once it’s in the oven you know you’ll have a full meal ready in a couple of hours.

To serve 2 adults

4 lamb chops

4 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced

1 onion, diced

2 carrots, sliced

about 300ml beef stock

Lancashire Hotpot

Lightly brown the chops in a frying pan, and fry the onions until soft. Put the carrots and onions in the bottom of an oven-proof dish, place the chops on top and layer the potatoes over them, as demonstrated by my small assistant. Pour the stock in until it’s just under the level of the top potatoes. Add a lid and pop in the oven at 180°C for 2 hours, then remove the lid and cook for another 20 minutes to brown the potatoes.
