Hippity Hoppity Easter’s On Its Way! Pressure Cooker Lamb Recipes!
I’ve noticed an increase in searches for Lamb recipes the closer it gets to Easter, so once again I’ve used the bad sitcom idea of the “clip show”, to bring you a “very special” Easter episode of Pressure Cooker Convert.
So here are links to a couple of pressure cooker lamb recipes perfect for your Easter meal. And if all goes well, I will have a brand new lamb recipe this weekend.
With the weather we have been having lately, you never know how the heck you are supposed to shop. You buy your groceries when it is 45 degrees, then two days later when it is pushing 80, you don’t know what to make with the stuff you bought to prepare lots of heavy, wintry dishes. Such was my dilemma recently with some lamb that I had earmarked for a hearty winter meal.
Once again, TV to the rescue! I was watching an episode of My Little Paris Kitchen, and Rachel Khoo, who hosts the show (and manages to cook some good stuff in a kitchen even smaller than mine) made a Spring Lamb Stew, which seemed to be just right for the warmer weather. I used her basic recipe as a jumping off point and made a few of my own changes. I would have used a cheaper cut of lamb if my store had it, but I ended up using some bone-in lamb steaks. I threw the bones in with everything else and removed them before serving.
This is a much lighter stew than the heavy, gravy-rich stews that you would serve to warm your chilled bones in the cold winter weather. It is somewhere between a soup and a stew. Served in bowls, it is substantial enough to serve as a meal, but not so much as to induce hibernation. In fact, I think this would be appropriate for all but the hottest summer days, which is why I called it Pressure Cooker Three-Season Lamb Stew.
It was a Friday evening so I just wanted to make something quick and easy. I used packaged pre-peeled carrots and probably would have used pre-cleaned beans as well if the store would have had them. It needs to cook at pressure for only twelve minutes, but the time it takes to bring to a simmer and the natural pressure release brings the cooking time to about 30 minutes. It is very tasty topped with Dijon mustard.
