I know that Summer is coming, but as I sit here and write this it is grey and gloomy outside, with teeming rain
.
I think this dish falls under the category of ultimate comfort food – no matter what the season
.
It’s one of those meals that is handed down from one generation to another – in fact, the faded old print out of a recipe that I used as my original base is called Granny’s Lamb Chops
.
It’s made using cheap lamb forequarters (although I adore it with necks too) and basic pantry ingredients
.
It can be fancied up a bit, by using passata as I have here, for example. Or pared back to fit what is in your cupboard, tomato sauce instead of passata
.
Serve it with buttery mash, creamy cauliflower puree or cheesy polenta
.
This recipe, along with all of my others can be found on my website or at the link in my profile
.
Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 kg lamb forequarter chops

  • 1 onion

  • 500 ml beef stock

  • 1/4 cup of brown malt vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste

  • 1/4 cup of tomato passata

  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon of curry powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon of mustard powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon of ginger powder

  • 2 tablespoons raw sugar

  • 3 tablespoons plain flour

Directions

  • Depending on the size of your chops, cut them in half and lay them in a deep casserole dish.
  • Peel and slice the onion and add it to the pot.
  • Combine all of the other ingredients in a large jug and whisk until there are no lumps.
  • Pour over the lamb, cover and let sit for an hour.
  • Heat oven to 160°C and cook, covered, for two hours.
  • You can pull the meat from the bones or just serve it rustically.
  • I like to add a sprinkle of fresh gremolata to cut through the richness, but fresh parsley would work too.
