I had some leftover leg of lamb left from the night before, so I’ve decided to turn that into dinner tonight.
The raisin buns were made yesterday noon and just a little toasting in the oven were all they needed. Now raisins + lamb = perfection. I love how the sweetness of the raisins enhances the lamb and at the same time, takes away some of that strong lamb flavour some people don’t quite like.
I shredded the lamb before warming it up in a pan, spooning a bit of the leftover gravy over the lamb to keep it moist.
To make the texture of sandwich even better, I piled some mozzarella onto the buns followed by the mushrooms I had browned in butter.
Great, simple dinner. Perfect with ice-cold homemade honey beer. =)
