This week: Lamb roasts and Greek lamb sausages

At The Butcher’s Block and Smokehouse, we take great pride in providing top quality fresh meats from the South Island’s best suppliers at good prices, like this week’s fresh lamb roast special. We also love producing a great array of fresh smallgoods right here in Wanaka, like this week’s special sausage, Greek lamb sausages.

For the week 19-24 September, make the most of this week’s specials:jamies-barbequed-leg-of-lamb

  • Legs of lamb (whole or half) only $10.99/kg, saving you $6/kg
  • Greek Lamb Sausages – one of our most popular flavours and gluten-free as well – only $10.99/kg, saving you $5/kg

Here are a few ideas to make the most of these two fantastic lamb options.

Jamie Oliver’s barbecued leg of lamb

This would be a fantastic weekend dinner with time to marinate the lamb in all those tasty herbs and spices. Maybe there would even be some leftovers to make cold roast lamb sandwiches or a salad the next day.

Another great idea from Jamie, this time with a spicy rub which creates a gorgeous crisp and smoky crust on this epic leg of lamb.

Sausage pastaThis sausage, tomato and capsicum pasta from Healthy Food Guide makes a great family meal. The addition of some sliced olives would really work with the Greek lamb sausages in this dish.

Greek meze supperGreek-style supper meze

We adore these meze-style dinners and respectfully suggest that replacing the chicken (tho’ that would be good too) with our Greek lamb sausages – just grill and slice – would make a cracking good dinner.
