Topic: Sunday Lunch/Dinner
Bit of a ritual in our house this. Slap in a roast, out for a walk in the autumn sunshine, laze about reading the papers or indeed listening to your football team labor to an underwhelming result.
This week I've got 4 shanks of lamb cooking in a mirepoix (carrots, onion, garlic and celery), half a tin of tinned toms, 2 pints of stock, ground cumin, corriander, salt pepper, paprika, cinnamon stick, chopped dates and apricots. Done it before but with mirepoix, red wine and bay leaf. Always with loads of Rosemary.
Rotating the lamb on the hour, cooking for four. once cooked set the shanks aside and blend the mix for the gravy. Will be serving with roast pots (maris pipers), broccoli, mashed carrot/parsnip and Yorkshires (aunt Bessie's unfortunately).
Sunny autumn Sunday afternoon's are what life's about.
Anyone else got a decent Sunday roast recipe?
Edited to say, I've only just found out what a mirepoix is by the way.
