Lamb sirloin roast - use for stew?

kws123 | Nov 29, 2012 11:19 AM

We ordered a lamb sirloin roast from our local meat coop, but I'm not sure what to do with it. My husband invited another couple over for dinner, but seeing that the roast is only 1.5lbs, I'm not sure that would be enough as a standard roast for 4 people. So I started thinking about a stew, which usually requires less meat per person.

Question is, can I cup up the roast and use it for the stew? I know that generally the lamb shoulder or leg cuts are used. Just not sure how sirloin roast will translate to stew. I assume it could work, but figured I'd check in here. And if not, would 1.5lbs of meat suffice for 4 adults? Possibly serve it with a couscous bulked up with garbanzo beans or something - go the Moroccan route.

Thanks in advance.
