13 Easy & Tasty Lamb Recipes

February is National Lamb Lovers Month so I am showcasing 13 recipes for Lamb that you can make in 2013.  These recipes are for various cuts of lamb and can be prepared in your oven, crock pot or grill.  (Please note the first 8 are all great in the crock pot.)  If you are looking to eat healthy or try new foods as your new years resolution then.... Eat Lamb!  I have freezer full of lamb and cook with it on a regular basis.  So whether you are trying lamb for the first time or just looking for some new ways to fix lamb simply click on the links below to check out these great dishes!!!

Apricot Lamb Curry
      This recipe can be tossed into the crock pot with whatever vegetables you have on hand, and the apricot and curry seasonings give this lamb a Moroccan kick.

Orange Lamb Shoulder Roast
      This is my go to recipe for when company comes over.  The Orange citrus flavors pair nicely with the lamb and everyone always asks for seconds.

Shredded Leg of Lamb Sandwiches
     I'm sure you've had shredded pork and roast beef, but have you ever had shredded lamb.  Ummmm... in my opinion.... it's better.

Holiday Loin in the crock pot
     This is a Gooseberry Patch Recipe from their Homemade Christmas Cookbook that I altered to go with lamb.  You can make it in your crock pot and the apples and cranberry's give the lamb a nice holiday touch.

Rosemary Lamb Shanks with sun dried tomatoes
      Fennel, Rosemary and mustard are great spices to use on lamb.  This recipe calls for all three and will not disappoint.

Mushroom Lamb Chops
     This recipe reminds me a little of chicken pot pie, but with lamb and made in the crock pot.

Crock Pot Apple Lamb Chops
     Apples and Brandy and Lamb... Oh My!!!

Mediterranean Lamb Steaks
        A very versatile recipe as you can fix it in the oven, on the grill or in the crock pot.

Honey Cumin Lamb Steaks
     Throw some lamb on the grill with this great marinade for lamb steaks.

Zesty Lamb Pie on a cornbread crust
    Because there is just something about cornbread that seems like a comfort food to me, so when you put lamb on top with some pepper jack cheese you know you've got a hearty home cooked meal.

Lamb Fajitas
    I make this on a regular basis at our house as it taste just like what you get at your nearest Mexican restaurant.

Teriyaki Lamb Chops
     Probably the first lamb recipe I ever shared on this blog and by far my favorite.  Serve with rice and this Asian inspired recipe is sure to be a hit at your house.

Shepard's Pie
     It's doesn't have to be St. Patricks Day in order to enjoy Shepard's Pie made with real mashed potatoes.
