Curried American Lamb Crepes

Curried American Lamb Crepes


  • 2½ lb. Lava Lake lamb shoulder
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 tomatoes, diced
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 10 ounce can coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder


Add the olive oil to a large Dutch oven over medium high heat.

While the pan is heating up, pat the lamb dry with paper towels, and season with salt and pepper. Add the lamb to the hot pan, and using tongs, brown every side.

Remove the lamb from the pan and add the tomatoes, onions and 3 tablespoon of curry; stir. Place the lamb back in the pan, and cover. Place the Dutch oven in a 280º oven for 2 hours.

When the lamb is a half an hour from being done, start on the crepes (or make them earlier in the day).

Combine the flour, water, salt and 1 tablespoon of curry powder and whisk until smooth. Place a frying pan over medium heat and spray with a vegetable oil spray.

When the pan is hot, add ⅛ c. of batter to the pan. Turn your wrist to spread the batter as this as possible on the hot pan. The crepe should cook all the way through so that you don’t need to flip it.

The lamb should be pull apart tender when you take it out of the oven. Remove the lamb from the Dutch oven and cover with foil. Add the can of coconut milk to the onions and tomatoes in the Dutch oven.

Cook the sauce, stirring occasionally, for five minutes. If you want more curry flavor, you can add a dash of curry to the sauce.

Slice the lamb into bite sized pieces.

To serve, place two crepes on a plate, add some lamb to the center of the crepes, top with a couple of tablespoons of sauce, and then fold over the tops of the crepes. Serve with rice.

By Heinen's Grocery Store

In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
