Four Ways to Prepare Lamb for Easter

Four Ways to Prepare Lamb for Easter

For many Canadian families, it wouldn’t be Easter without a lamb dish. Discover new ideas and inspired recipes to prepare a delicious meal for a joyous celebration.


Classic Rack of Lamb

1The Classic Way: It’s Easier Than You Think

 

Treat dinner party guests to a culinary pièce de résistance: rack of lamb. This show‑stopping cut is ideal for a special occasion like Easter yet roasts surprisingly quickly in the oven. It can be crusted with an array of gourmet aromatics: panko and fresh herbs over mustard, regular bread crumbs with Indian curries over yogurt or chopped scallions and crushed potato chips over tomato paste.

2The Foolproof Way: Put your Slow‑Cooker to Work

Cooking lamb in a slow cooker is ideal for entertaining. It requires zero supervision and produces fall‑off‑the‑bone meat. For mouth-watering results, choose a bone‑in cut (like shoulder or leg), add root vegetables, some chicken or beef stock and a handful of aromatics (rosemary, garlic, onions, curry, Moroccan spices, etc.). Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours, until an instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone reads 65°C (145°F).

3The Exotic Way: Spice it Up

Skewers are a nice way to bring a dash of international flavour to your Easter table and are especially perfect for a casual get‑together. Shop the aisles for exotic marinade (Greek, Caribbean, etc.) and mark the start of spring by grilling them up on the BBQ.

4The Unexpected Way: New Takes on Favourite Dishes

Try using lamb in some of your go‑to recipes. Ground lamb burgers, for example, are a no‑brainer. But don’t stop at simply switching up the meat. Try spicing things up with Moroccan flair (add creamy yogurt sauce or grilled fruit) or a Tex‑Mex twist (topped with guacamole and salsa). Have a treasured family recipe for Shepherd’s pie? Bump up the flavour profile with succulent ground lamb and sautéed onions.
