Ground Lamb, Diced Broccoli Stalks, and Chopped Onion

Ground Lamb, Diced Broccoli Stalks, and Chopped Onion

Ground Lamb, Diced Broccoli Stalks, and Chopped Onion (Serves 1-2) I used to eat the florets off broccoli and throw the stalks away. I figured that was the American way until I got to know my local organic farmer. He was proud of his tender, flavorful stalks, so I started steaming the stalks and turning them into a puree with salt, garlic powder, and ghee. I ate broccoli puree until I got bored with it and decided to try something new...

Slow Cooker Ground Lamb Curry with Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, and Okra

Slow Cooker Ground Lamb Curry with Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, and Okra

Slow Cooker Ground Lamb Curry with Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, and Okra (Serves 12-16) This ground lamb curry is rich even with all the added vegetables. When heating up leftovers I frequently added more vegetables like fresh greens, roasted beets, or a side of baked sweet potato. Ground lamb does well in the slow cooker. The meat sets up and requires breaking into chunks, but the result is a bit like a pot of tasty meatballs. I plan to try...

Pressure Cooker Bone Broth

Pressure Cooker Bone Broth

Pressure Cooker Bone Broth (Serves 15) Sipping a cup of bone broth on a cold night is deeply satisfying. Bone broth is good in terms of taste and the useful vitamins, minerals, gelatin, and collagen it brings to our bodies. NomNomPaleo inspired me to look at bone broth, first with her recipe for slow cooker bone broth and then her own pressure cooker bone broth. I am sharing my recipe with you after making my third pot. I think I have found...

Skillet Roasted Lamb Shoulder Blade Chop and Zucchini, Mushrooms, and Onions

Skillet Roasted Lamb Shoulder Blade Chop and Zucchini, Mushrooms, and Onions

Skillet Roasted Lamb Shoulder Blade Chop and Zucchini, Mushrooms, and Onions (Serves 1-2) The last choices in my refrigerator often make great meals when combined. My last choices recently were one lamb shoulder blade chop, one zucchini, a few sliced white mushrooms, and some sliced onion. I worried that mushrooms would not do well roasting in a cast iron skillet, but they did great and I plan to make this meal again. Prep and Cook Time:...

Skillet Roasted Lamb Shoulder Blade Chop and Parsnips

Skillet Roasted Lamb Shoulder Blade Chop and Parsnips

Skillet Roasted Lamb Shoulder Blade Chop and Parsnips (Serves 1-2) The parsnips looked like they had begun to burn and I was afraid they were ruined when I took the lid off my cast iron skillet. However, what looked like burning must have been caramelization because I swear they tasted like I was eating candy. The parsnips were so sweet, a sugar addict should avoid this meal. The lamb shoulder blade chop was excellent, but my favorite part...

Skillet Roasted Lamb Shoulder Chop with Brussels Sprouts

Skillet Roasted Lamb Shoulder Chop with Brussels Sprouts

Skillet Roasted Lamb Shoulder Chop with Brussels Sprouts (Serves 1-2) After learning how good vegetables cooked with chicken thighs in a cast iron skillet were, I began a binge of roasting chicken thighs with Brussels sprouts, asparagus, green beans, carrots, cabbage, and zucchini and squash. The chicken tastes great and I am enjoying the variety of vegetables, but I knew I needed to move on to something besides chicken. Then it dawned on...

Lamb Shoulder Blade Chops with Zucchini and Squash

Lamb Shoulder Blade Chops with Zucchini and Squash

Lamb Shoulder Blade Chops with Zucchini and Squash (Serves 2) My friends Phil and Mary Busman raise red headed Tunis sheep at Cherith Farms in Alpharetta, Georgia. I keep telling Phil that I am going to buy a chest-type freezer and get a whole sheep from him, but so far, I am getting my lamb from the grocery store. All the lamb in the grocery store is imported from New Zealand. I don’t understand the economics of importing sheep from...

Slow Cooker Boneless Lamb Shoulder with Carrots and Sweet Potatoes

Slow Cooker Boneless Lamb Shoulder with Carrots and Sweet Potatoes

Slow Cooker Boneless Lamb Shoulder with Carrots and Sweet Potatoes (Serves 5-7) I’ve been monitoring the meat case in grocery stores I visit closely for more than a year now. The selection of lamb is limited and I only recently found boneless lamb shoulder for sale. I prepared it in the slow cooker and liked it a lot. I hope I can find lamb shoulder again soon. Prep time: 5-10 minutes Cook time: 8 hours Ingredient list: 2.25 pounds...
