Easter Idea: True Aussie Lamb

          With Easter coming up in less than a week, I'm sharing another great option for an easy and delicious meal at home: True Aussie Lamb. I've been a big fan of True Aussie since I had the chance to try them out earlier this year at an event at Tremont 647.

          Australian lamb is pasture-raised, grass fed, and free of artificial additives and hormone growth promotants—a pure product of its pure environment. I recently had the chance to try a whole leg, along with some great recipe ideas.

          I used the crock pot recipe from True Aussie Lamb, but modified it to use the ingredients I had on hand. Here is what I did:

  • Whole lamb leg
  • 4 cups chicken stock (can use any kind of stock / broth)
  • 1 can of tomato paste
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon thyme
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Combine all ingredients in crock pot and cook on low heat for 12 hours
  2. Remove lamb from the bone and shred with a fork
  3. Cook rice, couscous, or other grain substituting broth from the crock pot in place of water
  4. Top with shredded lamb

          This was delicious and made plenty of leftovers! I ate some of the shredded lamb plain for lunch the next day, and tossed it with gnocchi and goat cheese for another amazing dinner the following night.

          If you want a chance to try True Aussie Lamb, Tremont 647 is hosting a special multi-course meal on Friday May 1st. Enter here for your chance to win a spot with a guest.
