Braised Lamb with Dill Sauce
Ingredients
  • 3/4  pound  tiny new potatoes
  • 3  medium carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 6  lamb rib chops, cut 1-inch thick
  • 2  teaspoons  cooking oil
  • 3/4  cup  water
  • 2  teaspoons  snipped fresh dillweed or 1/2 teaspoon dried dillweed
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground black pepper
  • 1/2  cup  plain low-fat yogurt
  • 4  teaspoons  all-purpose flour
  •  Fresh dillweed (optional)
Directions

1. Remove a narrow strip of peel from center of each new potato. Place potatoes and carrots in a 3-1/2 to 4-quart slow cooker. Brown both sides of lamb chops, a few at a time, in hot oil in a large skillet. Drain off fat. Place lamb chops on vegetables. Pour in water; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of the fresh or 1/4 teaspoon of the dried dillweed, the salt, and pepper.

2. Cover; cook on low-heat setting for 7 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3-1/2 to 4 hours.

3. Transfer chops and vegetables to a serving platter. Cover chops and vegetables to keep warm.

4. For the sauce, strain cooking liquid into a glass measuring cup; skim fat from cooking liquid. Measure 1/2 cup cooking liquid. Combine yogurt and flour in a small saucepan. Stir in cooking liquid and remaining 1 teaspoon fresh or 1/4 teaspoon dried dillweed. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 1 minute more. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper. Serve chops and vegetables with sauce. Garnish with additional fresh dillweed, if desired. Makes 3 servings.
