The wide selection of lamb available from the Deluxe range at Lidl is all Bord Bia Quality Assured and produced in Ireland

Deluxe Boned and Rolled Lamb Leg

Only €15.99, available in store now

It’s a classic for a reason - lamb is a quintessential Easter main course. This boned and rolled lamb leg is produced in Co Waterford and won gold at the Irish Quality Food and Drink Awards in 2022, so you know that you’ll be serving something of the utmost quality. Available stuffed or plain, this will work perfectly as the centrepiece of your Easter dinner - make sure to pick up a jar of Batts Mint Sauce (69c) for the classic lamb and mint flavour pairing.

Deluxe Irish Stuffed Carvery Leg of Lamb

€17.99 per kg, available in store now

Leg of lamb is ideal for an Easter feast and it works beautifully with all of the trimmings. Produced in Co Wexford, this stuffed leg of lamb won one star at the 2021 Great Taste Awards and gold at the Irish Quality Food and Drink Awards in the same year. For a perfect finish, make sure to rest the meat for about 15 minutes or so before carving, as this will help to keep in all the juices for a tender result. If you’re in the mood for a glass of wine with your lamb, try the Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2021 (€18.99) for a young wine with good depth of flavour.

Available with garlic or red wine jus, this award-winning chateaubriand is produced in Co Cavan - it took home silver at the 2023 Blas na hÉireann awards and one star at the Great Taste awards in 2022. Aged for 32 days, this 100 per cent Irish chateaubriand is a delicately flavoured piece of meat cut from the beef tenderloin. It’s very lean so it’s best to let it rest well before serving it medium at most. Horseradish sauce is a classic accompaniment for beef, so make sure to pick up a jar of Batts Horseradish Sauce (69c) to complete your Easter feast.
