Sunday Leftovers = Tuesdays Dinner...

Sunday, I marinated and barbequed over charcoal the last pack of Lamb loin chops I had vacuum-packed. As there was 16 good sized chops, leftovers were anticipated! Today, I took them, trimmed of bone and fat, threw them in with baby carrots, celery( chopped), baby Yukon Gold potatoes quartered, large chopped Vidalia onion, all in a chicken stock/brown gravy base. Seasoned, it all went into a crock pot for 6-8 hrs. Voila! Lamb stew ala Buffalo Dick. We have to be the only idiots having stew on an 88 degree day in June! And don't laugh at the stew base, it totally nailed the lamb stew flavor! Monday and Tuesday generally are the days we mop up the left overs, and our one rule is "Nobody should have to eat anything more than twice"!

Hey Uncle Buff!

Can you believe I have never had lamb?

Um, on second thought, I'm sure you can. :)

I can't wait until I get that personal chef hired... :D
(or a hubby that cooks)

Nope you arent the only one who likes stew on a hot day. do to and I inflict it on whoever is nearby when I figure it has simmered for long enough. Usually with a few herb dumplings as well.
Cheers!

Snow- Lamb is delicious, but make sure the person fixing it knows what they're doing! Most Americans first experiment with lamb was an overdone roast, cooled to where it's tallowy nature comes out, slathered in (shudder!) mint jelly!
Lamb loin chops charcoaled, or lamb shank done like a pot roast would be a good start...
meridic- welcome to the blog! You of the British Isles know all about a good lamb stew!
akelamlu- Over here on St.Paddys Day, you can get Irish stew and they will still use(incorrectly!)beef instead of lamb...

My rule is that now should eat anything more than once.

Not a big leftover fan. Or a stew fan for that matter.
