We all love fast food. Last year alone, we spent a staggering £6 billion on takeaways in the UK! But despite being delicious, fast food isn’t always the healthiest – or cheapest – choice for dinner. Fear not, however, our food-loving friends: we’ve created these incredible lamb fakeaway recipes, so you can indulge without the calories, expense or guilt. Simply decide on a cuisine and teleport your taste buds to the world’s top takeaway destinations – from the comfort of your sofa. Here’s a few of our favourite fakeaway recipes for you to try at home, which are best enjoyed on a weekend, in the company of family and friends.
Lamb Kebabs with Spices and Raisin Tabbouleh
Teleport your taste buds to the Middle East, with these subtle sumac, parsley, garlic, turmeric and lemon-infused Lamb Kebabs with Spices and Raisin Tabbouleh. The longer you marinate the meat, the softer and more flavoursome it will become and the better the eating will be. For the ultimate fakeaway feast, stick them in some flatbreads and enjoy a true taste of the region from the comfort of your living room.
Lamb Sloppy Joes
Next stop on our fakeaway world tour is America, courtesy of the humble Sloppy Joe. Our take on this stateside staple has been given a mouthwatering makeover, however, as you swap beef for lamb and tuck into this family favourite. Simple to cook, easy on the wallet, but not so easy on white t-shirts, cutlery is usually required to eat this messiest (and tastiest) of burgers.
Vietnamese Soup with Lamb Strips
Famed for its splendid street fare, Vietnam is a favourite of foodie’s from all corners of the globe. Our Vietnamese Soup with Lamb Strips is no different, with this pho-nomenonal recipe overflowing with nutritious ingredients and delicious flavours. Best of all? You don’t even have to sit on a tiny child-size stool to enjoy it.
Turkish Lamb Pizza
Combining the best of two fakeaway favourites, our Turkish Lamb Pides are essentially Italian pizza with Turkish flair, where the emphasis is on fragrant lamb, fresh ingredients – onion, tomato, green pepper, finely chopped chilli and mint – and traditional touches such as yogurt and ras el hanout. Providing the perfect excuse, if you needed one, to ras el hanout with your friends. Sorry.
Lamb and Spinach Curry
Curry is the UK’s favourite food. FACT. With it often said that curry is the new national dish of Britain. But while it’s great to visit your local curry house from time to time, for those weekends when you’re trying to save money or simply can’t be bothered to get ready – why not stay at home and enjoy the great tastes of India from the comfort of your sofa with this creamy Lamb and Spinach Curry. Delicious.
Teriyaki Lamb Rice Bowl with Chilli Dressing
Grab your chopsticks and delve into the height of Japanese/Hawaiian dining with this poke-inspired dish: Teriyaki Lamb Rice Bowl with Chilli Dressing. Which, for the uninitiated, is a medley of finely sliced vegetables and sizzling oriental sauces that are topped with tender lamb leg steaks. It’s effortless, affordable, photographable and so delicious you’ll forget it’s healthy - what are you waiting for?
Lamb and Cheddar Quesadillas

It’s no secret that Mexico is one of the culinary capitals of the world, which is embodied in this delicious lamb fakeaway recipe. So all that remains is for you to serve up these cheesy bites of heaven and to let yourself slip into a weekend-long siesta.
