Lamb Ragout

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by Lorac

Heavenly! I saw this recipe in a magazine at the supermarket (? Fine Cooking ? Gourmet). I was so excited, wrote the ingredients on a scrap of paper, and made a dash for the meat department. I substituted boneless lamb for shoulder chops, Merlot for white wine, Roma tomatoes for artichoke hearts, increased the amount of garlic and tomato paste and added parsley. I served this with Yam a Day. Eat your heart out Jan S. !!

As promised, we tried this tonight. You certainly have my tastes worked out Lorac, it was delicious. I really love a reduced sauce rather than a flour thickened one, as I think it intensifies the flavours, and this was no exception. I added 2 quarted onions along with the garlic, but otherwise didn't change a thing. All you people who aren't so fond of lamb, this is a good recipe to try. Next time I cook a a rabbit I'll do it the same way.
