Grilled Lamb & Cheese Sandwich with Sweet Potato Fries Recipe
1 SugarRoti Lamb Nu Spice Package
1 cup water or ½ cup water if using slow cooker (or your favorite broth)
1 lb lamb shoulder, cut into ½ inch cubes (we like lamb shoulder but any cut will work great. Ask your butcher to cut meat into cubes.)
2 medium skin-on sweet potatoes, ½-inch sticks
2 tablespoons olive oil or ghee (clarified butter)
8 slices sourdough bread (or your favorite sliced bread)
4 slices white cheddar cheese (or your favorite cheese)
¼ cup butter
1 medium serrano chili, finely chopped (remove seeds for a milder spice)
¼ cup fresh mint, chopped
Preheat Oven to 375°F
Mix sweet potatoes with olive oil and 1 tablespoon of SugarRoti Lamb Nu Spice. Spread in an even layer on a baking sheet and roast until sweet potatoes are tender and roasted (15-25 min).
While the sweet potatoes are roasting, heat oil over medium heat in a large pan. Add remaining SugarRoti Lamb Nu Spice package and sauté until spices are sizzling and fragrant (1-2 min).
Add serrano, lamb and water. Cover and simmer until lamb is cooked. Remove curry leaves and using a fork, shred the lamb. Mix shredded lamb with its braising liquid and set aside until you are ready to assemble (you can braise lamb ahead) (25-30 min).
Butter one side of each slice of bread. On the unbuttered side, layer ¼ cup of shredded lamb, a slice of cheese, and a sprinkle of mint. Top with the other slice of bread, with the unbuttered side facing in (5 min).
Heat a large pan over medium heat and grill each side of the sandwich until bread is crispy and golden brown and the cheese is melted (5-8 min). Enjoy with sweet potato fries.
