Lamb for beginners

churchka | Dec 19, 2008 07:59 AM

My parents tell me they hate lamb. It is too rich, it is too gamey, it is too whatever. Of course, they each have had it once and who knows how it was cooked.

For Christmas, they have asked me to cook lamb, so they can try it again. My husband and I eat lamb all the time, but we are very adventurous eaters.

How would you cook lamb for a beginner? They won't like anything rarer than medium. They "don't like" Indian or Middle Eastern food (they have had each once and seemed ot enjoy it while we were eating it...)

Also, I'll be cooking it at a cabin, so nothing too fancy. I'll be bringing up my knives and a few other things, but no food processor, blender, fancy equipment. And no grilling, it is cold in Minnesota this time of year.

Thanks everyone in advance.
