This month at Carolina HeartStrings we are doing international recipes. And what better way to start than for me to do a traditional recipe from my mother’s home county in England! For those of you have difficulty finding ground lamb, you could probably substitute ground pork.
This was one of our Berkeley student poor-man meals during graduate school. Meal in a foil package…exciting enough even for company. The good news was that I could prepare it, pop it in the oven – go shopping, exercise, etc. And voila! Dinner.
Wonderfully aromatic sausage patties with short bursts of lemon and mint. The whisky cream sauce is the suggested accompaniment. Inspired by Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon.
This recipe is a combination of a complicated traditional Rogan Josh recipe that I have never been able to master and the short cuts I’ve use to appease my Indian cravings! It’s a hearty combination of lamb, onions, tomatoes, yogurt and amazing Indian spices. Don’t let the long ingredient list scare you away!
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira. In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
