Lamb Wraps

Here is a recipe for Jackie - oh so yummy and will keep you in the zone.
Ground Lamb Wraps
1 medium onion, chopped fine
4 clove of garlic pressed or minced
1 lb. ground lamb
1 cup frozen peas
1/2 diced cucumber
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh mint
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil
1 Tbsp. chopped cilantro
Juice of 1 lemon
Head of butter lettuce
Salt and Pepper
Small container Greek yogurt
minced onion
minced cucumber
finely chopped mint
small clove garlic through a press
salt and pepper
Separate the Boston lettuce into leaves and wash and dry. Mix the Tzatziki together. Sauté the onion and lamb in a pan until the lamb no longer pink - discard the excess fat. Add peas, salt and pepper and cook 2-3 minutes.  Add cucumbers, all the herbs and lemon juice.  Cook another 2-3 minutes. 

Put some Tzatziki on a lettuce leaf, add a spoonful of lamb, roll up and eat.  We had this with a big salad on the side - with lots of yummy toppers. I allowed myself 3 of these (about 3 oz. of meat) but since you had that run this morning you might be able to have 4 oz.!


  1. I am printing this for dinner tonight. You know, a glass of red wine would be great with this dish!

    1. yes it would - chant the mantra "no booze, no booze, no booze"

  2. You guys eat well. Does Neale help you cook?

    1. No he just keeps me in groceries. I am his kept woman. Ha ha - actually last night he washed the lettuce leaves, got things out of the fridge and drained the fat from the lamb so he did help.

  3. He's certainly helpful in the camp kitchen!
    Good idea with lettuce wraps. Lamb is tops. Do you have the grocery grind it?

    1. No but I try to buy local, grass fed Colorado lamb when I can find it.

    2. He's the bomb on a camping trip but I have usually done most of the cooking in advance - he does the rest though.

  4. Made this recipe today. Big thumbs up from John, he had three. His were wrapped in tortillas instead of lettuce but still worked.
