Mongolian Lamb

Posted: May 4, 2011 in Lamb, Meat, Stir-fry

I just noticed that my last post has gone astray. This is a fabulous recipe, so although I can’t remember the context of my blog I won’t leave you hanging wondering what it was and if it was any good, because it was! However I will leave you with a little tip. Ask your butcher to cut your lamb in strips, saves you the hassle when you get home and they’ll do it for free and with a smile šŸ™‚
