Italian Lamb Stew

Italian Lamb Stew

Juanita/Jane 1

"This lamb stew is a lighter version of more traditional recipes, but still provides the comfort of those heartier stews. It is a great way to make use of those extra vegetables from your garden. Serve with crusty rolls."

  1. Heat the olive oil in a Dutch oven or large, heavy-bottomed pot. Season the lamb with salt and pepper; cook in the hot oil until browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the garlic; cook and stir 1 minute. Pour the red wine and chicken broth into the pan and bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon. Reduce the heat to medium-low; add the tomatoes, oregano, and bay leaf to the pot. Simmer gently until the lamb is tender, about 45 minutes.
  2. Raise heat to medium-high. Add the potatoes, green beans, red pepper, and zucchini to the pot. Cook until the vegetables are tender, another 15 to 20 minutes. Sprinkle the parsley over the soup. Remove the bay leaf and season with salt and pepper before serving.

Incredible... but did make some changes sauteed some chopped bacon and onions in the oil, then dredged the lamb in smoked paprika and rosemary - for more of a smokey taste. Also did not add th...
