    Best Leftover Lamb Roast Dish

    My Friend and Host Mary had bought a rather large leg of lamb
    It was to feed 5 of us but obviously… it could have fed probably 8-10
    So even before we had leftovers, I did a search for a way to use them up
    Of course there is always Shepherds pie BUT we wanted something different
    Epicurious had a recipe that inspired me. I made a few changes
    So so simple and so so tasty
    Beautiful flavoured rice
    Cant get much better than that, I reckon
    Not only did we have lamb but also gravy and mint sauce leftover, so perfect
    AND there was still lamb for a sandwich the next day

    To serve 4
    Heat oven to 175C
    Grease a casserole dish with butter

    3 Tablespoons butter
    2 medium onions peeled and thinly sliced
    1 1/2 cups leftover Lamb
    1 cup of leftover gravy including 1/2 cup mint sauce
    1 1/2 cups of stock (I used powdered stock in water
    1 clove garlic
    1 1/2 cups basmati rice
    1/4 cup chopped parley

    Extra parsley for garnish

    Saute onions in butter until soft and delicately browned
    Add rice
    Stir and cook for about 5 minutes till rice is almost toasted
    Mix together gravy, mint sauce and stock and parsley
    Add to pan
    Stir well
    Add leftover lamb and parsley
    Bring to boil and turn into Casserole dish
    Into oven and bake for about 30-40 minutes when rice is cooked and has absorbed most of the liquid
    Check at 25 minutes to make sure it not drying out
    Garnish with extra chopped parsley and serve
