How To: Lamb & Potatoes

Egreis Gjergjani LambMy “go to” kind of meat is either chicken or beef. But every now and then I have to switch it up with shrimp, fish, lamb, etc. My family isn’t so big on fish which is sad because I love me some fish, but they told me last week that they’re willing to try it as long as it’s not salmon so I’m extremely excited!

Tonight I made lamb, potatoes and vegetables.

In a big pot, I sliced up some onion, one tomato, half of a green pepper, and added 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Turned the heat on to medium high fast working weight loss pills. Then I added 10 pieces of lamb chops and one big cup of water (equivalent to two cups of water if you are using a measuring cup). I put the lid on and let it cook for 30 minutes. Every 10 minutes or so I would stir it and flip the lamb chops over.

Egreis Gjergjani LambWhile the lamb was cooking, I took a big, deep pan and added chopped up yellow potatoes with two tablespoons of olive oil and garlic salt sprinkled on top of them. I also added 2 big glasses of water (4 cups if using a measuring cup). I did this because I made a LOT of potatoes. But generally, the rule of thumb is you pour enough water until you see that all of the potatoes are pretty much filled all the way to the top with water. So whether that’s 2 cups of 1 cup it doesn’t matter. I also put a lid on this one and let it cook on medium high as well.

In another pan, this one much smaller than the potato pan, I sliced up a bunch of broccoli and cheddar cheese and cooked them together. The entire thing took less than 15 minutes to cook.

I sprinkled a little bit of sea salt over it and covered the entire pan with foil. On the other aluminum pan, I poured the potatoes and all of the juice that was inside of the pot I cooked the potatoes in. I also covered this pan with foil on top as well. I placed them both in the oven, at 400 degrees fahrenheit, and let them cook for about an hour. (The potatoes were actually done 15 minutes earlier than the lamb).

I like to cook my meat thoroughly. I normally continue cooking it until I see that the meat is shredding to small pieces and falling off the bone. So I did the same this time as well.

In the end, I served the lamb, potatoes and broccoli together. Too bad I forgot to take a picture of it. I was entirely too hungry so it skipped my mind. But take my word for it…it was YUMMY! So give it a try if you’d like. My kiddos don’t even like lamb and they loved this one! Points scored! 🙂
