FFwD: Brased Cardamon- Curry Lamb (Beef)

Last week I never was able to upload my link to the squash and pear soup? This week I still don't see the post for that recipe? Anyway, on to this week...

I'm not a fan of lamb. I had all the good intentions of making a lamb and beef version and well, let's just say that didn't happen. I am going to redeem myself and make the recipe again with lamb next week at work.

I wasn't able to find Cardamon at my grocery store, so used a substitution of cinnamon and nutmeg. The smell of this dish cooking was delicious! I added some peas to the stew at the end of cooking and served over rice. The flavours in this recipe were great. I'll have to admit I rushed the braising of my beef to the cries of "are we ever going to eat dinner?" So the meat wasn't fall apart tender. Hopefully, it will be more of a hit with the lamb on Tuesday when I make it for the residents at the home where I work.

I haven't decided what I'm going to make next week, but it will probably be something sweet. I also have Dorie's Baking book so may choose something from there? I will be doing another stuffed pumpkin for my vegetarian sister inlaw for dinner.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving next week. We're going to a Thanksgiving service and dinner with other Americans that live in Guernsey on Thursday. And I'm cooking for 15 next Saturday... Yikes! Will be a wonderful week and in all the hurry and chaos that the holidays can bring, pause and give thanks!

Blessings to all of you and Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. We didn't use lamb either... No fans in my house. But glad you enjoyed your version.
    Have a great weekend & good luck with the holiday preparations.

  2. I made this with lamb, but I think beef was an equally good choice. Glad you hear you liked it. Happy Thanksgiving! What's like to celebrate this holiday away from the States?

  3. Yup...I'm behind on this one, but I'm going for the beef when I catch up. Glad you will enjoy Thanksgiving and what a great day to spend with friends.

  4. Nice post! I didn't get a chance to make this one. I'm hoping to try it soon. Happy Thanksgiving!
