Lamb Stew


2-3 lb. lamb stew, fat trimmed

1 cup white beans (cooked or canned)

1 cup chick peas (garbanzos) (canned)

1 large or 2 medium onions, quartered

1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 ½ teaspoons turmeric

4 cups water

Put your lamb I a large pot and cover with all the other ingredients.  You don’t have to brown the meant first. Bring to a boil.  Reduce the heat and simmer for about 2 hours on low heat.

Note:  IF you want you can add cubed white potatoes to this.  About ½ hour before it is done, take the potatoes out and puree them, and add back to the pot.  This will thicken the stew nicely


Herbed lamb patties 

Serves 4

About 1 lb. ground lamb

1/2cup minced parsley

1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1 teaspoon fresh or dehydrated lemon rind

¼ cup lemon-thyme vinegar

1 teaspoon salt

1 egg – slightly beaten

About 1 cup bread crumbs

¼ cup water

Mix all ingredients as for meat loaf.  Adjust amount of bread crumbs so mixture will hold together.  Form meat into patties.  Heat a large skillet THEN add 2-3 tablespoons oil (I use olive oil). Sauté patties until WELL browned don both sides. Mix the water and vinegar.  Pour over patties and quickly cover pan with lid.  Let SIMMER for about 5 minutes.


Rice with Carrots (Havij Polo)


Serves 4-5

1 lb ground lamb

1 large onion, finely chopped

3 tablespoons butter (oleo)

2 ½ cups cooked rice

1 teaspoon paprika

6-8 carrots

1 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons sugar

½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper

¾ -1 teaspoon cinnamon

4 Tablespoon butter

Put meat in a bowl. Add onion, paprika, salt, pepper and cinnamon.  Combine seasonings well with meat, then from meat into balls about the size of a walnut or a little larger, but not too big, Sauté meat balls for about 5 minutes in 3 tablespoons butter, cook carrots for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, then add sugar to carrots. Cook another 5 minutes or so.  Pour the carrots over the meant balls and mix. Purr carrot/meat mixture over rice.  (We serve it separately but it is more authentic if you put the mixture over the rice)
