Today, I cooked a boneless leg of lamb that came out delicious. This was my first one - my DH & I just wanted something we hadn't had before. It was about 4 pounds, and after DH & I ate, and I brought a plate to an elderly neighbor, we have more than half left over.

Other than making sandwiches, how else can I use the leftovers? Can I treat it as I would leftover beef? Or is it more like pork or chicken?

Left over lamb goes really well with stronger spices as it has a good flavor. Curries are my favorite way to use lamb!!!

Hello Jo-Ann, Do you make fried rice? If yes, make curried lamb fried rice, lamb and curry go very well together.

We like curry with lamb. Sometimes I just use the Near East Mediterranean Curry rice and then add small chunks of lamb with peas, carrot slices, and maybe some zucchini and broccoli, or you can start with plain or brown rice and just add the flavors.

If I only have a small amount of lamb I often make Scotch Broth, which is a soup with lamb and barley. That's really good, too. We love lamb.

Dear jomoncon, why not make a shepherds pie, that is the classic for leftover lamb.
A lot of recipes tell you to use fresh lamb, but that is not the traditional way to do this at all.
It was made from the leftover lamb from Sunday dinner, and the vegetables.
You simply mince the lamb that is left up; fry some onions till they are soft, add things like cooked carrots (chopped up), some stock, herbs and garlic.
Then put that it all in an oven proof dish. Boil some potato's and mash them with butter, and simply put that over the top of the meat and veg.
With a fork make some lines all over the top of the potato's and place in the oven at 400F, until the potato's are nice and brown.
There is thousands of recipes for this on the internet, but the proper way is to use the leftover meat!
