My mom used to tell us that lamb is very good for health. She said it’s very nutritious and very warming to the body. In Malaysia, lamb meat is imported mainly from New Zealand. But in Scotland, you can easily get fresh lamb meat. I seldom cook lamb but remembering what my mom said, I bought 2 packets of lamb shoulder chops to try. I added some spices for extra health benefits. It came out very delicious and my family loved it. Here’s how I cooked it.
6 pieces lamb shoulder chops (about 1200g)
1 carrot (peeled and cut into pieces)
1 big onion (peeled and cut)
1 knob of ginger (washed)sliced)
1/2 whole garlic (peeled and chopped)
1 leek (washed and cut)
1t tumeric powder
1t cummin powder
1t coriander powder
Slice out the meat from the bones and slice it into smaller pieces.
Heat up some oil in frying pan. Add the ginger, garlic and onion. Fry until it is fragrant.
Dish it up into a fairly big pot. Add in the lamb, including the bones, to pan fry for a while and dish it into the pot too. Add the tumeric, cummin, coriander and water and let it cook for about 40 minutes or until tender. Add in the seasoning in Ingredients B. Adjust to taste.
Ingredients B (seasoning)
2T light soya sauce
1T oyster sauce
This is a very delicious lamb stew that goes great with rice. The flavour is very good.
Do you like lamb? How do you like it cooked? Some people don’t like the smell of cooked lamb. Do you have a way of cooking to minimise that? Please share, add and comment in the comment box below.
