Lamb, veg and noodles tossed together with storecupboard sauces for a stir-fry that takes only 10 minutes to cook. This recipe is a mouthwatering leftovers idea from our slow-cooked shoulder of lamb dish. The leftover meat needs to be thoroughly reheated until piping hot and should never be reheated more than once. See method
