Fall is here, and I’m in the mood to cook!
Just bought some fresh Ontario lamb, and I’m making a stew! The weather is getting colder and I need some comfort food! Nothing fancy, just rib sticking, home cooking that is ready and on the table in a little over an hour from start to finish!
1 lb sirloin Lamb chop, bone out, cut in pieces
3 cups Butternut Squash, cut up in chunks
1 med Onion, chopped
1\2 cup Strained Tomatoes
1\2 cup Dry White Wine
2 large Garlic Cloves, chopped
1 full tbsp Turmeric
1 cup Mung Beans, cooked or Bean of your choice
In a deep skillet, brown meat on med, add onions and cook until soft and translucent. Do not burn the onions!
Add the wine and let it come to a boil for a few seconds.
Add the tomato, spices and salt to taste.
Add the Squash and stir in. Pour enough water to almost cover the top.
Bring to a boil, turn heat to low and cook covered for 1 hr.
Add the beans and continue to cook for about 10 to 15 min. stirring occasionally.
I like to drizzle Olive Oil on top and stir it in before I eat it. I find it brings out all the rich flavours.
Serve with a side of your favourite steamed greens!
I have Rapini shown in the picture.
Till next time……………………………Mangia!
