1. Braised Lamb
Who doesn’t love braises for lunch? Not only are they very easy to make you can make some beforehand and just warm them up when you’re ready to eat. As a growing child whenever my mum made lamb shanks, I would rush off to the bathroom and have my hands thoroughly washed because for no reason would I enjoy my favourite meal using cutleries.
All you have to do is seasoned merely your lamb shanks with salt and pepper then proceed to brown them in hot oil to create a nice crust. Once that is done you will then proceed to cook the meat in a sauce of crushed tomatoes garlic onions carrots and red wine until the meat begins to fall off the bone. You can serve this with potato hash and Crème Fraîche.

4. Rack of lamb with carrot salad
If you remember the three main points that will be mentioned below preparing rack of lamb will be straightforward.
a). If you want the flavour of the lamb to come through, then it is best you season with only salt and pepper instead of marinating the meat.
b). Set the lamb fat aside in a hot skillet then allow it to rest for a minute until it becomes brown. You would have to flip it again and let it brown then flip it one more time. This is a simple trick to help crisp up the fats and also give it a nice brown exterior at the same time preventing the edges from getting overcooked in the oven.
c). The best way to stop your meat from tightening up and to allow it to come out very tender is to bake it at 300 degrees. It is also important that the hot air circulates the lamp which is why you have to put it on a wire rack.
