DH and I made this recipe from the February 2009 edition of Bon Appetit a few nights ago and really enjoyed it. We usually prepare our lamb chops on the grill, but I thought that this recipe would lend itself well when grilling is just not practical. I am posting the recipe as printed in Bon Appetit, however, DH suggested that next time I chop the rosemary and thyme leaves, rather than lightly crush them with my mortar and pestel. Prep time includes marinating time.
This is a great one dish meal--you basically throw it all in the oven and it cooks itself. Don't be afraid of the amount of liquid used as a lot evaporates & a lot is soaked up by the rice.
You can also add some whole fresh tomatoes to roast alongside the lamb if you like.
Modified version of a recipe I found on the 'net that I thought turned out great. Apart from a few small changes to seasoning the original recipe called for a cup of wine rather than beer, sometimes I feel with tomato that makes things a bit rich when slow-cooked and I thought the beer substitution worked well. If you don't want to use beer try a cup of beef stock instead of the stock powder / beer. Also whole garlic cooked this way doesn't taste strong at all, if you want it to have a strong garlic taste you'd need to crush some of it.
This should probably be called Chicken livers and gravy as it forms a wonderful tasting gravy. I've had this recipe for years but don't remember where I got it. I'm posting the recipe as written and added my additions at the end. Hope you like it, can be easily doubled or tripled.(though I don't double the margarine for cooking the livers)
Chicken livers have always been a staple on my diet, from when I was a little girl.I have combined a few recipes with my own and I came up with this one. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do They are comfort food for me!.;)
One of my favourite cooking styles is Italian.
Many years ago, I had the privilege of becoming acquainted with, and lived among Italians families from the region of Calabria. I was therefore delighted when, upon reading this recipe, (as it appeared in "Saveur Magazine"), I recognized it as one which was created by Marcella Hazen "the acknowledged godmother of Italian cooking in America".
Marcella has very quickly become my personal "Maven of Italian Cuisine". I do confess, however to "tweeking" blends of seasonings and ingredients to suit personal taste, but that is the essence of proficient cooking, isn't it? I believe that is the goal to which we all aspire to achieve; I am sure Marcella would agree.
Marcella says "This is a recipe that starts out as two before becoming one. The chops and sauce... are cooked separately. Small rib chops should be cooked very briefly to a moist, flaming pink. Cook them too long, and they will turn gray and lose all their juice." I concur.
This is the ultimate Garlic Chicken Liver recipe. Simple, quick, minimal ingredients. Stolen from my local Italian restaurant after two weeks working there as a dish washer just to get the recipe. They've retired now so I don't think they'll mind me divulging their secret!
This made the house smell heavenly, a perfect cool weather dish. The meat literally falls off the bones. Mashed potatoes as an accompaniment is a must. The total cooking time is actually 2 hours 15 minutes, adding in the time to thicken the sauce the total cooking time is 2 1/2 hours.
I make this ham at the holidays and always receive rave reviews, this ham will be the star attraction at you table --- do not use sugar-free 7-up for this, make certain before starting this that you have a large enough roasting pan with a rack that will fit into the pan, a 12-pound ham will take a bit of time to bake so make certain that you have all your other dishes made ahead of time --- if you don't want to go the extra step with the pineapple and cherries you may omit and just make the ham using the brown sugar coating :)
NOTE: Even though you may have purchased a Butterball or a butter basted bird, you should still follow these directions, as they inject very little butter into the bird, just so that they can legally get away with saying that it is butter basted. Trust this recipe of mine, and I guarantee that you and your guests will have the best and juciest turkey ever! The cook time will vary, depending on the size of the bird.

Honey Baked Hams are basted in fruit juices and then glazed with a mixture of brown sugar and honey. Here is a copy cat recipe from Family Circle Magazine. Have to say, I love Honey Baked Hams. Makes 1 7 lb. ham.
