About

I used leftover grilled leg of lamb for this recipe. If you purchase a boneless leg about 3.5-4# & enjoy a dinner for 2, you will have roughly 1 1/2# of leftover meat. Just use 1# for the recipe and freeze the rest for another time. I like to serve organic, steamed green peas with butter, s&p, and a sprinkle of freshly chopped mint along side A family favorite! A great way to introduce Lamb to kids. Enjoy.
