Lamb is one of those meats that isn’t normally eaten in my house. Between myself being a vegetarian and my family being picky it hasn’t been a meat of choice, that is of course until recently. As a young child I remember having lamb weekly and I used to love it and, despite my diet choices, I want my kids to have those good food memories I had as well. That is why I went on a hunt for some amazing lamb recipes to add to our weekly dinner menu and found these lamb recipes that my family truly have learned to love. Hopefully with a little love and patience your family can add some of these amazing feel good lamb recipes to your weekly dinner menu too!

Best Shepard’s Pie from Girl Heart Food
Shepard’s pie in my house is something that my kids love, but we have traditionally only done it with beef in our house or even on the odd night a vegan way. This recipe that is one of the most Irish shepard’s pie recipes I have ever had the pleasure of making. Filled with delicious Guinness and a little horseradish in the taters on top. Of course for my family I did use a lot less that this recipe requires just to accommodate their tastes.
Authentic Irish Lamb Stew from the Spruce Eats
Nothing hits the spot better than a big bowl of Irish stew – it feels like all things cozy and always helps when you are feeling sick. This has always been a family favorite in our house, but again something we did with beef, and changing it up with lamb was a game changer. It changes the whole dynamic and honestly I hadn’t experienced Irish stew properly before this – deliciously amazing.
