Curry Lamb Chops

"This is from Taste of Home's Cooking for 2. I have learned that when I find a recipe if it is not on Zaar and I don't post it, I will misplace it. Such was the fate of this recipe. I have made some minor adjustrments. This is wonderful served over rice or couscous."

    MADE FOR ZWT4. This is hard for me to rate. It's not really a curry recipe, as the orange juice flavour dominates (unless a very strong curry is used). It's also (judged by African standards) not very African, due to the teriyaki sauce, which is Asian. I'd say this sauce could do with a few tweaks: some honey added, no teriyaki but perhaps soy sauce, maybe a spice or two. I sinned in that I had a small piece of leg of lamb that I needed to use tonight. I cut deep slits into the leg of lamb, and marinated it in the sauce, then oven-baked it. When the lamb was done, I removed it to a dish, and thickened the sauce as the recipe said. Although I used only 100 ml orange juice -- less than half a cup -- the sauce did not thicken much. Maybe more cornstarch is needed. Much of the fault here is mine -- I was making 2 other ZWT recipes at the same time. I should have tasted the sauce and adjusted it. Paula, I am not uploading the photograph, because I did not use chops and do not want your photograph to be changed. I will post the photograph in the African forum and the thread of the Cafe Zmakk Gypsies. I do think the curry can be increased if using a mild curry. Thanks!

    This is really lovely. I decided to slow cook mine in a low oven. I dusted with the cornflour and then browned. Drained any fat and then added double all the other ingredients. Cooked covered for about 2 hours on 140C. This could easily be adapted for the crockpot. Served on mashed potatoes. Great meal that was well received by all family members.

    This was really nice. I did this in the oven rather than on the stove and didn't need to add cornflopur & water to thicken the sauce, it was great as is. For ZWT III Waltzing Matilda challenge.
