Superior Farms Shares a Great Recipe from Rustic Joyful Food

Superior Farms has been a leader in the lamb raising industry for decades. One of the passions of Superior Farms is bringing lamb awareness to a whole new generation of food enthusiasts. This is done through providing retail partners innovative products and mouthwatering recipes. That is the case today as Superior Farms is sharing an incredible recipe from Rustic Joyful Food. The recipe is for Wood Grilled Superior Farms Lamb and Asparagus.

One of the best parts of the wood grilled Superior Farms lamb and asparagus dish is that it can work great for a family of four or it can make an ordinary at-home date night an extraordinary at-home date night. Here are the main ingredients you’ll need for the recipe:

  • 2lbs of boneless leg of Superior Farms Lamb
  • 1 cup of plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 pinch of red chili flakes
  • 2 cloves of crushed garlic
  • ½ tablespoon of black pepper
  • Salt to your liking

Additional sauces of herbed yogurt and red pepper pesto should also be prepared for the meal. The herbed yogurt will require:

  • A cup of plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 green onions
  • ½ cup of cilantro
  • ½ flat leaf parsley
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove
  • Pepper and salt to taste

Red pepper pesto will require:

  • 1 large red bell pepper, which should be seeded and sliced
  • ½ cup of flat leaf parsley
  • ½ cup of olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove
  • ½ cup of cilantro
  • 1/3 cup of shredded Parmesan
  • Lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to your liking

The prep for this meal starts the night before serving, but it’s still only a 20-minute process. This process is sped up even more if the cook has the Superior Farms lamb  legs cut into uniform pieces. The only thing that needs to be done the night before is to place the lamb, yogurt, garlic, pepper and chili flakes in a large freezer bag. The bag can then be placed in the refrigerator until the next day.

When the time comes to grill, the chef should wait until the grill is heated to 350 ° Fahrenheit. How long the Superior Farms meat needs to be on the grill really depends on how the meat was cut. It usually is safe to say between seven and nine minutes on each side for those who enjoy their meat served medium.  When the meat is flipped, the asparagus can join it on the grill. The asparagus can come off at the same time as the Superior Farms Lamb and just needs to be finished with some salt and pesto. It’s simple and delicious.

While the chef is waiting for the Superior Farms lamb on the grill, they can work on the sauces as well. The easiest way to make both the herbed yogurt and the red pepper pesto is to utilize a food processor. All the ingredients can be added in a food processor and are finished when everything has smoothed out. For those who want to get even more flavor out of their sauces, they can be made 3-4 days ahead of time and placed in the refrigerator.

Warm up Your Autumn with Superior Farms’ Shepherd’s Pie

Superior Farms lamb

Autumn is here which means, for many of us in the US, the weather is starting to cool off and cravings for hearty and warm meals are sure to grow. This shepherd’s pie recipe by Superior Farms is perfect for those in need of a delicious kitchen staple to carry them through the colder months. Don’t be afraid of the substitution of biscuit as opposed to the traditional mashed potato. We find that the substitution is just perfect for sopping up the rich shepherd’s pie mixture.

Recipe provided by The American Lamb Board:

  • 1 lb of ground American lamb (preferably about 85 percent lean meat)
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 1 celery rib, finely chopped
  • 1 (16- ounce) package of frozen carrots and peas, defrosted and drained
  • 1 (15-ounce) can plain tomato sauce
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp fresh ground pepper
  • ¼ tsp dried thyme
  • ¼ tsp dried parsley
  • 1/3 tsp dried marjoram
  • 1 cup biscuit baking mix (Bisquick, etc.)
  • 2 tbsp finely grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • ¼ tsp dried rosemary crushed
  • ½ cup of whole milk
  • 2 tbsp low sodium butter, melted

Superior Farms recommends preheating the oven to 425°F. Meanwhile, heat a large heavy bottomed skillet on medium heat and cook the lamb. Be sure to break it up into small pieces. After about two minutes, add the celery and onion, continuing to cook until the meat is browned, about 8 minutes. Take the opportunity to drain excess fat and moisture, then return the skillet to the stove.

Add vegetables, tomato sauce, herbs, salt, and pepper and be sure to cook until the mixture is completely heated through, about five to six minutes. Afterwards, spoon the mixture into six 8-ounce ramekins and set them aside. In a small bowl, combine biscuit mix, cheese, and rosemary. Incorporate the milk and butter, slowly stirring until just combined. You are now ready to spread the dough over each of the ramekins individually. Place the ramekins on a baking sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until the tops of the biscuits are golden brown. Remove the ramekins from the oven and set them aside for 5 minutes. You will now have scrumptious individual shepherd’s pies. Perfect for the autumn!
