DENVER /PRNewswire/ -- Competition was fierce in this year's battle for the grand lamb prize with two quickly rising to the top of the annual "Best American Lamb Family Recipe Contest" sponsored by the American Lamb Board. From Naples, FL, Stephanie Ray's Roasted Holiday Lamb Leg with Sassy Orange Sauce and from Darien, CT, Linda Rohr's Lamb Strudel with Yogurt Mint Sauce were chosen for their flavor, creativity and diverse use of American lamb.  

Stephanie Ray of Naples, FL, shared her "family favorite" as a budget-savvy use of American lamb leg for the holidays in a recipe that "incorporates a fresh Mediterranean flavor that enhances the meat." This simple dish always pleases the Ray family and is known as "the most elegant, raved about, stand alone, piece of lamb" that is "well worth our time in the kitchen."  

Hailing from Darien, CT, Rohr combined her favorite ingredients, leg of lamb, to create a simple dish that showcases this tender cut and provides a ewe-nique use of holiday leftovers for a savory New Year's creation. Rohr's family agrees that "this Easy and Elegant Lamb Strudel makes a terrific first course or entree."  

Ray and Rohr will each receive a roasting pan and an American Lamb cut of choice to serve a family of six. To view their winning recipes please visit
