Recipe Blog Hop

I'm loving these blog hops.



 

I'm going to start with recipes that I already have pictures of.
Lamb Neck Stew
So when you first read the title I can only imagine the look on your face. I too was appalled when I saw the package from my husband's grocery trip. Kari never had lamb before and wanted to try it. As cheap as he is I am guessing the price appealed to him also...lol.

Nevertheless I believe I can cook ANYTHING. I carefully researched lamb necks and found that they're mainly used in stews. I believe lamb stew is primarily an Irish dish. I chose not to go by a recipe, but you can easily find a recipe to fit your tastes on the interntet. I do not measure when I cook so I will just tell you what I did.

I seasoned and browned the lamb necks in EVOO. I set the lamb necks to the side and used the juices and leftover evoo to cook onions and garlic. I then added the lamb necks back into the pot along with one can of stewed tomatos, chopped carrots, fresh green beans, a few small red potatoes, and water until just about covered the meat. I used salt, pepper, cumin, allspice, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, bay leaves, and honey to season. I brought the pot to a boil then simmered for 2 hours.

Tha family loved it and if I ever see lamb necks at the commissary again this is something I'll definitely make again.

That actually looks really good to me!!! Maybe it is the Southern in me, but if it looks gross then it is probably really good!!

LOL...that's cause we can throw anything in a pot and make a decent stew, soup, or gumbo.

the name is scary but it sounds pretty good. We love lamb here but it is kinda pricey but stew is a nice cheap alternative. And so good in the winter!

Thanks for joining in! : )
