Celebrate the Chinese New Year with Welsh Lamb

Whilst some of us have already had New Year’s celebrations, there is another reason to celebrate this month as it marks the start of the Chinese New Year!

We love the different spices you can use in Chinese cooking with its sweet and sour combinations. So why not invite a few friends round and celebrate the Chinese New Year with these great Welsh Lamb Chinese recipes?

1. Slow cooked Welsh Lamb shoulder with Chinese spices


Make your own alternative chinese pancakes with this recipe using tasty Welsh Lamb. Start by cooking the meat for almost 2 hours to get the meat so tender you can easily pull it off the bone.

Cover with pineapple juice and maple syrup to give the dish its classic sweet and sour taste. Serve with classic chinese pancakes and spring onion for a delicious starter, or with creamy mash and steamed vegetables for a main.

2. Crispy Welsh Lamb breast with chinese 5 spice

The trick to this delicious dish is slow cooking the Welsh Lamb as it sits in the stock, giving a really juicy and tender result. Drizzle a little honey on the meat at the end and cook for a final 5 minutes to add that perfect crispy topping. Serve with Chinese style stir fried vegetables and enjoy!

3. Chinese style Welsh meatball broth

This dish is a great healthy option for those of us still sticking to our New Year diets! With only 137 calories, ingredients such as Pak Choi, bean sprouts, peas and radishes make for a colourful and healthy dish. Add a little bit of horseradish sauce to the meatball mix for that extra bit of flavour.

4. Chinese Welsh Lamb bubble and squeak cakes

With only a 20 min cook time this dish is super simple and easy to make for all the family. Simply whack all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix together roughly with your hands before shaping into flat cakes. Adding apple juice to the hoisin sauce gives it an extra fruity twist - delicious for dipping!
