We were thrilled to have so many of our loyal customers come in and visit us over the Christmas Holiday period and we've got some new home deliveries too. A lot of people don't realise how far we deliver - from Noosa down to Pelican Waters! This weather has been amazing and we have been enjoying the extra daylight hours with our family and so let us take the hassle out of taking the kids to the shops, by letting us deliver to your door.
We've been enjoying some delicious summer delights at home, and we've been loving our Mexican. So today I wanted to bring you AMAZINGLY TENDER Jalapeno, Lime, Honey & Coriander Lamb Shoulder Tacos!
This is great because you do a bit of prep work & then either throw it in the oven, on the bbq with the hood down or even in your slow cooker... I actually love using my slow cooker in summer, because it doesn't heat up the whole house, like the oven tends to, and I can do the prep work early & then leave it to cook while we go out to play at the beach or by the pool...
- 1.4kg lamb shoulder, bone in
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 1 jalapeños, seeded, finely chopped
- Zest and juice of 2 limes
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1/2 bunch coriander leaves and stems, finely chopped
- 2/3 cup (170ml) vegetable stock
- Salad ingredients - I like to cut all of our items up & leave separate so that everyone can select their own
- Hard or Soft tacos, lemon wedges, coriander leaves and garlic aioli, to serve
Preheat oven to 180°C (160° fan-forced). (not required if using a slow cooker)
In a medium bowl combine olive oil, garlic, jalapeños, half the lime zest and juice, honey and coriander, season. Make small incisions in the lamb with a sharp knife, pour over marinade and rub to coat. Place lamb in a large roasting pan, pour stock around base and cover tightly with foil. (or place it in your slow cooker for 6-8hrs)
Cook in oven for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or until meat is tender and falling off bone. Set aside to rest for 20 minutes. Shred lamb with 2 forks. Drizzle with any pan juices, drained of fat.
Meanwhile place all your salad ingredients: lettuce, tomato, carrot, schallots, avocado, onions, even a coleslaw with cabbage & carrot &/or pineapple and coriander etc.
