Fruit and Lamb Exotica

The combination of tender grassfed lamb, onions, garlic, and fruits makes an exotic and delicious crock pot recipe. Lamb cubes can be cut from any part of lamb or use lamb stew meat.

2 lbs grassfed lamb cubes, about 1 inch square
1 tsp. crushed red pepper
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 onions, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
14 oz. can condensed beef broth
1/2 cup water
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
2 Tbsp. cold water
1 cup pitted dates, chopped
1 cup dried apricots, chopped
1 apple, chopped

DIRECTIONS; Combine red pepper, cinnamon and salt and blend. Coat lamb cubes with this spice mixture.

In large skillet, heat olive oil and saute coated lamb. Use more than 1 skillet or saute 1/2 at a time.

As the meat is browned, transfer it to crockpot. When all meat is browned, stir onion and garlic into crock pot. Pour beef broth and 1/2 cup water over all. Cover and cook on low for 7-9 hours until meat is tender.

Skim fat from juices, if necessary. Grassfed lamb generally has very little fat. Combine cornstarch and 2 Tbsp. cold water in a small bowl and mix well. Stir into crock pot. Add dates, apples and apricots to crockpot and stir well. Cover and cook on high for 30-40 minutes until mixture is thickened.

Serve over hot cooked rice or noodles. This crock pot recipe will make 6-9 savory servings.

Overnight Beef Stew

½ pound baby carrots
3 full stalks of celery, cut up
½ pound baby carrots
1/8 teaspoon fennel
2 quarts water (or enough to fill a crock pot half full)
1-2 pounds beef, cubed
3 medium potatoes
¼ onion
¼ teaspoon parsley
1 clove garlic, diced
2 envelopes beef stew mix

Brown meat in flour and oil. Fill the crock pot half full of water. Drain oil from meat and add to crock pot, cooking on medium to low heat overnight.

Next morning add spices, vegetables and beef stew mix. Add water until almost full and stir in mix. Cook on high until boiling, then turn down heat to low and simmer until just before serving.

The obvious advantage of crock pot recipes like this overnight stew is that you can prepare in advance. Crockpot recipes can be ready and waiting when you want them.

4 boneless chicken breasts, preferably from pasture-raised chicken
