Lamb has, on occasion, got a bit of bad press for being too expensive, too fatty or only suitable for special occasions but with a little imagination this tasty, versatile meat can be perfect for a mid-week meal. This recipe uses lamb loin but it would be just as delicious and bursting with nutritional goodness if you tried using more economical cuts such as shoulder, neck or leftovers from the Sunday roast.

Delicious for a mid-week meal that is easy on the wallet, simple to make and a great alternative to the classic beef mince dishes. The novelty of eating off bamboo skewers also gets a big thumbs up from the children.
A firm family favourite not just because they are so tasty to eat but no-one gets told off for not using their knife & fork properly. It is virtually impossible to eat these with grace and finesse, just get stuck in!
We know what you’re thinking….meat from the farm shop is more expensive. Ok, so we’re not going to start pulling the wool over your eyes and tell you that’s just a myth.
