BBQ Leg of Lamb with Mustard Crust: Byron Bay Chilli Co

In Beef by Mark MaskerLeave a Comment

Lamb: the other red meat. We love it and Byron Bay Chilli Co has a great recipe for barbecue leg of lamb with a mustard crust. In fact, you’re reading about it right now.
It is suggested that this be served on a plate with rice pilaf and a fresh salad. If there are any leftovers, roll some chunks of lamb into a warm, grilled, soft flour tortilla, drizzling BBCC Fiery Coconut Chilli Sauce sauce over it, adding a bit of fresh onion and crunchy, shredded cabbage. Then roll that all up Oz Mex style into a lamb burrito. You’re welcome.
