Slow baked Bloody Mary Lamb


Hope you all have had a great start to the New Year, lets hope its a good one.

I spent my New Years Eve wandering the aisles of a bottle shop with many others, but unlike everyone else I was only interested in buying vodka to cook my lamb.
And to make raspberry, rose and vodka jelly I must add (it was delicious!).


Most of you would know I am a huge fan of Anna Gare's recipes, many of them favourites in my home.
I finally have her book 'homemade' now, it is almost shocking how many recipes I have cooked (and loved!).


This Bloody Mary Lamb recipe, named of course after the drink, is a slow cooked lamb dish served with rigatoni.


The lamb is slow cooked with leeks, carrots and celery, topped with a sauce made up from passata, chicken stock and vodka. The recipe I linked to is slightly different to the one in her book.


Considering this was a rather wintery dish, it really was quite light to eat. 
The flavours were refreshing but did not offer as much depth and guts as I usually find in Anna's recipes. We did really enjoy eating it but I probably wont cook it again, not sure it was worth that much vodka!

  2. The Bloody Mary theme is been invading the kitchens lately! This dish looks great, I don't like Bloody Mary as a drink but I think I'd enjoy the ingredients paired with lamb.

  3. Looks absolutely mouthwatering and I bet the lamb was really very tender when it was done!

  5. What a great name for a recipe! It looks fabulous. I love slow-cooked lamb. I usually make it with red wine so I'll be interested to try this using vodka.

  6. How fantastic! I wish I could make this for my mum, who loves lamb, but alas her tomato alleriges prevent it!

  11. I'm not a fan of the bloody mary, but that' s because I always felt like I was drinking soup. It would be perfect with this lamb!

  12. Yeah you're right, it seems like a lot of vodka went into this dish! At least the lamb would've been real tender :)
