The Perfect Lamb Dinner

Feel free to whip up your favorite potato recipe as a side, and top off the meal with a rich and delicious dessert like Buttermilk Pie.

Barbecued Lamb

  • 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce
  • 1 teaspoon hickory smoked salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 cup corn oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 6-pound leg of lamb

Blend ingredients and marinate lamb several hours. Smoke, covered, over low coals about 25 minutes per pound or until meat thermometer registers desired degree of doneness. Baste frequently. Let rest 20 minutes at room temperature before carving.

Stuffed Mushrooms
  • 1 pound mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons minced onion
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon sherry
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Remove mushroom stems and mince; saute stems with onions in butter until limp. Add cream, sherry and seasonings and cook slowly until thick, stirring constantly, 10-15 minutes. Fill mushroom caps with mixture and place on greased baking sheet. At this point mushrooms may be refrigerated or frozen. When ready to serve, broil until brown and bubbling.

Plantation Tomatoes (while they’re still in season!)

  • 8 tomatoes, at their peak
  • 2 fresh green hot peppers, minced, or 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons minced green or red onions
  • salt and pepper to taste

Peel and cut tomatoes into wedges, removing every woody part. Toss with remaining ingredients. Chill several hours. The secret of this dish is to select perfectly ripened tomatoes and to use only the best sections.

Passanante’s Tasting Party In Drexel Hill, PA

This past Saturday we packed up our grills and headed over to Drexel Hill, PA to cook for two awesome customers, Harry and Tina.

We served up nine tasting courses, each recipe selected because of its taste but, more importantly, its simplicity. These are easy to prepare dishes that our customers can fit into their busy lifestyles. After all, with this type of quality meat and organic vegetable products, you don’t need to be a gourmet chef to prepare an incredible meal!

The crowd was very impressed and I’m sure we made a few new customers!
