Bring a taste of New Orleans to your table with this savory lamb gumbo.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound American Lamb leg or shoulder, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 cans (16 ounces each) stewed tomatoes
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/2 lemon, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves, crushed
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen sliced okra, defrosted
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained

Directions

  • Coat lamb with flour. In large pan with cover, heat oil over medium-hot heat. Add lamb and brown. Stir in tomatoes, broth, wine, parsley, lemon, salt, thyme, bay leaf and garlic. Simmer, covered, 1-1/2 hours.
  • Add okra and black-eyed peas. Cook 10 to 15 additional minutes. Remove bay leaf before serving.

Cooking Lamb: Lamb should be juicy and tender when cooked. Tender lamb cuts can be prepared using dry heat - roasting, broiling, grilling, pan-broiling and pan-frying. Less tender cuts are best prepared using moist heat - braising and stewing.
