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.
Good stuff! I went back to the ingredients in the first paragraph listed as original--the white wine and the artichoke hearts. This was fast to put together, and then easy, you do nothing but simmer for an hour. Result is very tasty, very tender. I used meat from a leg of lamb I had deboned. Served with garlic mashed potatoes, would be nice with polenta, I think. Jan S says it would be good with a rabbit, it would be perfect with a rabbit, I think!
This was delicious. I used bone-in lamb neck, so used a bit more than a lb and probably got 3 servings out of the recipe. I used chicken broth and dry vermouth and canned tomatoes. My rosemary plant had put out a bunch of tender stems and leaves and those were just perfect in this recipe. This is a great recipe. If you do your prep and brown the lamb in the morning, it is an easy dinner, and even if you did not, it's doable, as it's so straightforward. Served with rice and fat asparagus spears.
