Roman Style Lamb Recipe – Abbacchio alla Romana

Roman Style Lamb Recipe – Abbacchio alla Romana

By 05/02/2016

What is the best way to cook lamb? I love it roasted in the oven, barbecued, cooked on a griddle pan or.. "alla romana"!

Abbacchio, or suckling lamb, has been enjoyed by the Romans since ancient times particulary at Easter time.

The lamb is cooked with fresh herbs, anchovies (which add a real kick to this dish), white wine and vinegar, a combination that gives this dish a unique, aromatic and almost sweet taste. I find that this represents very well the essence of the Italian cuisine as it is made with few and simple fresh ingredients and the end result is a beautiful super tasty dish.

I have used lamb's shoulder instead of suckling lamb but you can use the leg or any other part you prefer.

  • Prep Time : 20 minutes
  • Cook Time : 50 minutes



Finely chop the rosemary needles and the sage leaves then chop the anchovy fillets into small pieces. Season the meat.

chopped herbs and meat

In a pot stir fry the garlic cloves with two tbsp of olive oil.

Remove the garlic, add the meat and brown it on all sides then add the chopped herbs and the anchovies. Stir well.
Add the vinegar and some of the wine and cook for 50 minutes over a low to medium heat. Moisten the meat with the remaining wine during the cooking.

I served the lamb with polenta which I cooked at the same time as the lamb.

Serve this dish warm with polenta, potatoes, couscous or anything else you fancy and some cooked vegetables or salad.

Lamb Roman style - Abbacchio alla Romana

Did you notice that cute red pot? When it entered my door and I opened the parcel it was love at first sight! This is an Italian "Sapori" pot made with clay and ceramic materials which is fantastic for cooking stews and meats and hey.. it is stylish too! Italians love style everywhere! I found that it cooked my meat beautifully, it retains the heat very well and it is non stick. I liked it so much that I have left it on the shelf in my kitchen on display!

    This recipe sounds devine and not too fussy – just as stews should be. I may give it a go for Sunday dinner. We love a beef stew here in Scotland with a few wee beef link sausages sneaked in, served with boiled potatoes, homemade peas, puff pastry and loads of gravy. Yum!

    Hiya, hoping you are all well! I’ve just made this and although I had no white wine, I used a Monte Bello fortified cooking wine (Marsala) and it tastes delishious! If I see these little bottles (white, red, port, Madeira and Marsala), I usually clear the shelf, they’re so handy and just the right amount for most of Delia’s recipes. Having this tonight with good ol mash and courgettes in lemon and garlic. Making your lentil and veg soup – in fact, I’m having a My Little Italian Kitchen week! Xxx
