Lamb is a firm favourite for many across the country, however, some of us may struggle with the prep and cooking, but do not fret, Aldi Brand Ambassador Catherine Fulvio, is sharing some of her top tips on how to perfect the lamb roast this Easter.
“Lamb is such a delicious tender meat, that takes additional flavour very well. My two favourite methods of adding to it are with a dry rub and a marinade.
A dry rub is a mix of spices that is spread all over the meat, left to infuse and then roasted. The spices permeate the outer edges of the meat and marry with the caramelised exterior, making it a delicious way to cook Lamb.
A marinade will add flavour and keep the meat moist while cooking. To get best results, it is a good idea to leave the meat in the ingredients overnight for the flavours to really develop.”
See below, some of Catherine’s favourite rubs and marinades:
Try Moroccan flavours like cinnamon, cumin or Indian spices also work very well. A combination of garlic, salt, ginger, cumin, turmeric and red chilli flakes is one of her favourite combinations.
Again, a Middle Eastern mix of flavours of pomegranate seeds, chopped mint, olive oil and orange zest work really well with lamb and is packed full of flavour. If classic Mediterranean tastes are more your thing, use chopped garlic, lemon zest and juice, thyme, olives and anchovies – you won’t regret it!
