    Default Help me learn to cook

    I was going to cook some lamb swirls for tea, but I don't know how to cook them .

    Do you cook them in the oven? How long do I cook them for?


    I thought that everything came with instructions these days

    Wots a lamb swirl???? How big a piece of meat?

    If it's just meat, then high heat for not long. Lamb should be pink, not red. Maybe brown the meat first in a hot frypan with butter and a little oil so butter doesn't burn.

    Do the lamb in the oven, pre-heat to about 150C , you can brown the lamb in a frypan while you're waiting if you want, a bit of oil in a flat dish... lamb in the dish... dish on the middle rack of the oven for about 20-30 mins total (and turn 'em once at half time). Lamb likes to 'stand' for a few minutes after taking out off oven and it's good to pat or drain the oil off.

    No, it should be just cooked through.

    A lamb swirl is either a deboned chop with stuffing tied into a round or it could be those similar looking things they make out of the flaps.

    If a chop, then cook as described above.

    If its a flap then long and slow cause it will be as tough as old boots and fatty.

    He's probably refering to a deboned shoulder of lamb, flattened out, with a layer of some sort of stuffing, rolled up, tied with string, and cooked as a roast.
