The Top 10 most popular Welsh Lamb recipes

We like to think that this site is the best resource you can find on the web for Welsh Lamb recipes. We’ve got 150 of them now, including everything from salads to skewers and roasts to risottos, and are always interested to see which are the most popular.

So we decided to take a step back and look at the top 10 most viewed recipes over the last year. Much like the variety across the site, they showcase the versatility of Welsh Lamb in that there’s no one cuisine, cut or occasion for these recipes. The only thing they have in common is that they’re all super tasty!

Take a look for all the food inspiration you need to make a delicious dinner. Which one will you be making tonight?

1. Welsh Lamb Wellington

This classic Lamb wellington is an impressive dish that is surprisingly easy to make. The mushroom and garlic create a great flavourful crust that goes perfectly with Welsh Lamb. Make the recipe even easier with pre-rolled puff pastry for that perfect golden crust.

2. Smooth Welsh Lamb liver pate


A popular recipe with lamb which is perfect when you are throwing an impromptu dinner party. Make the most of your prep time by whipping up this smooth Welsh Lamb pâté early on and leaving it in the fridge until your guests start arriving. Serve the dish with a stack of lightly toasted granary bread and peaches, all drizzled in a delicious honey.

3. Larger Family Life: Welsh Lamb Greek Kleftiko


Our most popular Lamb recipe by a foodie blogger, this Welsh Lamb Greek Kleftiko was created specially for us by family blogger Tania Sullivan.

6. Gizzi Erskine's Welsh Lamb, orzo & aubergine stuffed vegetables


Created by well known celebrity chef Gizzi Erskine specially for Welsh Lamb, this stuffed pepper has proved to be a popular lamb recipe. Mince and orzo make up the meaty middle for a healthy but filling dish.

7. Welsh Lamb cawl


Most nations have their own version of a stew or broth - and Wales is no different with its warming Cawl. Some reckon the best tasting Cawl is made the day before and left to settle overnight, but we think a 1-1½ hours cooking time is enough to get the meat really soft and tender.

8. Crispy Welsh Lamb Breast with Chinese 5 spice

Chinese 5 spice and honey make a great sticky sauce for this crispy lamb breast recipe. Serve with Chinese style stir fried vegetables and spring onion mash for the perfect Oriental dish.

9. Welsh Lamb Shepherds Pie


For the less experienced cook, you can’t go wrong with this super easy classic. Fry and boil all your ingredients in a big pan to make the filling, adding herbs like thyme and parsley for extra flavour. Pour into a dish, layer with potato and parsnip mash and leave in the oven for 20 mins. Easy!

10. Slow cooked Welsh Lamb Shoulder with sloe gin, plums, ginger and star anise
