Slow-Braised Lamb Shoulder Chops with Sherry
Ingredients
  • 1  cup  chopped onion (1 large)
  • 1/2  cup  chopped carrot (1 medium)
  • 2  cloves  garlic, minced
  • 1  tablespoon  olive oil
  • 6  lamb shoulder chops, about 3/4-inch thick (8 ounces each)
  • 1  cup  reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4  cup  dry sherry
  • 2  bay leaves
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  cracked black pepper
  • 1/8  teaspoon  ground cloves
  • 1  recipe  Spanish Chard (optional)
Directions

1. In a 4 to 5-quart slow cooker combine onion, carrot, and garlic.

2. In a very large skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Add lamb chops, half at a time, to skillet; cook each chop until brown on both sides. Place chops in slow cooker. Add broth, sherry, bay leaves, salt, pepper, and cloves.

3. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 5 to 6 hours or on high-heat setting for 2-1/2 to 3 hours. Transfer chops to a serving platter; cover with foil to keep warm.

4. For sauce, discard bay leaves from mixture in slow cooker. Transfer vegetable mixture and cooking liquid to a 4-cup glass measure; skim off fat. Using an immersion blender, process vegetables and cooking liquid until smooth. (Or cool mixture slightly; place mixture in a blender. Cover and blend until smooth.)

5. To serve, spoon sauce over chops.* If desired, serve with Spanish Chard.
