Cordero con ajo: Lamb with garlic

Paola serves Cordero con Ajo at the Experienceplus! christmas dinner

I found this Spanish recipe in a French cookbook on Mediterranean cuisine. The chunks of lamb shanks got a bit tough with the cooking. So, careful on what kind of cut you choose!

THE RECIPE:

Ingredients for 4 people:

 

     

  • About two pounds of lamb meat, without bones and cut in small chunks;

     

  • four tablesopoons of olive or canola oil

     

  • three onions finely cut

     

  • three cloves of garlic

     

  • four tomatoes peeled and cut (or canned tomatoes)

     

  • about a cup of dry white wine

     

  • salt and pepper some green or black olives

     

  • 2 cups of rice

     

 

Directions:

 

Saute the meat in oil and put aside. Cook the onions, the garlic and the tomatoes until the whole is like a thick sauce. Put the meat with the sauce and mix well adding the wine. Add salt and pepper to taste and cook a few more minutes. Serve on a bed of rice, decorated with the olives.

 

Buen pro vecho! Paola
