Tuesday EWESday!

Tuesday EWESday is a new segment of my blog I want to dedicate to EWE! Anything goes if it has to do with sheep. I have been raising sheep for a long time. I hope to share some fun and even educational things about our great industry, as well as some things I have encountered along my way.

Did you know that a Ewe is a female sheep?

February is “Lamb is for Lovers Month!”
This recipe is one that my grandma passed on to me and we have served at many parties. It is simple and easy which are important for busy people on the go. My kids love to help mix up the sauce too!

BBQ Lamb
(Serves 8)

1 American Lamb Shoulder roast (approx. 5lbs)
1 cup chicken stock
1 tsp of salt
1 tsp pepper
2 tsp garlic power
Worcestershire Sauce to taste
1 onion chopped
½ brown sugar
14 oz bottle of ketchup

Place lamb in a roaster or Crock pot. Set heat to high. Pour in chicken stock. In a bowl combine salt, pepper, garlic powder, Worcestershire, sugar and ketchup until mixed add in onion. Pour sauce over the roast. Place lid on and do not open for 6-8 hours. Cook until roast falls apart or pulls apart with a fork. Serve on a Kaiser Bun or bread of your choice!

*if roast is tied together with string, remove before roasting.http://www.reesefarmroots.com/

I don't think I told you, but my grandpa had sheep for a long time. And our neighbor has had sheep off and on. I'll never forget, we'd only been here a couple of weeks and I was getting ready for work and saw about 20 sheep in our backyard. Bart had to chase them home. Happened again this fall! Love it!
