- Salt and pepper lamb and brown in olive oil. Add onion/shallot, carrots and garlic and saute a few minutes. Deglaze with sherry and add remaining ingredients. Simmer on low for 1 hour or until lamb is tender. Serve as is or remove lamb and puree sauce. Garnish with parsley.
What wonderful flavor and aroma from such a simple recipe! We added a bit of smoked Spanish paprika and the resulting color in the sauce from that and the carrots was just gorgeous! My husband wanted to give this six stars. My cast iron braising pan is wider and shallower than a Dutch oven, so we doubled the amount of liquid sherry and chicken stock) and it was still fine.
DEFINATELY yummy as can be! Meat M-E-L-T-E-D, fell off the bone for me! Thanks to JustJanS review, I pureed sauce and came out terrific too! I did need to add a little more stock thoughout the way, But this recipe MADE MY DAY! THANKS!
Absolutely yummy, drool-worthy recipe. :)
