It is spring time so it’s lamb season. I was shopping in the farmers market and got a bunch of stevia.
Not long time ago there was the Persian New Year – Nowruz.
So I was looking for something to combine them all – Persian food, lamb and stevia. I found – Gormeh Sabzi – but I replaced the spinach with the stevia.
I cooked this dish for some friends, most of them stating that they don’t like lamb at all, but they will taste it not to insult me.
At the end they ate it all leaving the pot empty! 😉
So, Happy Nowruz everyone, with a bit delay 🙂
Ingredients (about 8-10 portions):
- 1 kg boneless lamb shoulder- I used a full shoulder which I deboned myself
- 4 tbsp olive oil
- 1 onion
- 4 garlic cloves
- 2 teaspoon freshly chopped ginger
- 2 teaspoons ground turmeric
- 1/4 teaspoon saffron
- 400 g tinned kidney beans, drained
- 3 bunches stevia
- 2 bunches parsley
- 1 leek
- 2 bunches spring onions
- 2 bunches spring garlic
- 1 dried lime
- 1 teaspoon chili flakes
- salt and ground black pepper to taste
- Cut the lamb meat into 2 cm cubes (debone it if necessary).
- Chop the onion and garlic.
- Cut the stevia leaves into 2 cm strips.
- Slice the green garlic, green onions and leek.
- In a large frying pan heat 1-2 tablespoons olive oil.
- Add first the fattier lamb pieces, to melt the lard until they have browned and a bit crunchy.
- Add the chopped onion and garlic and fry them until golden.
- Add the the remaining lamb and chopped ginger and fry them until golden brown.
- Add the leeks,. Cover with a lid and slide into the oven for 1 1/2 hours.
- Heat the 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large frying pan and add the stevia, parsley, spring onions, spring garlic and leek greens.
- Fry them for a few minutes, over medium low heat, stirring until fragrant and darker.
- Add to the casserole with the limes, season to taste, then return to the oven for a further 1 1⁄2 to 2 hours, until the lamb is extremely tender.
- Serve while hot with saffron rice.
