Squash Stew With Lamb
Source: NPR.org Kitchen Window series adapted from Barbara Kafka's Vegetable Love (Artisan 2005) (Entered by Cynthia Willett)
I first tried this recipe last fall and was thrilled to see the winter squash varieties coming in again.
Serves: four cups
Step by Step Instructions
- Heat olive oil in a large saucepan. Add the onion and cook over medium-low heat 2 to 3 minutes, or until translucent. Add the lamb, breaking it up with a wooden spoon. Cook for 5 minutes, or until the meat has lost most of its raw color. Add the garlic and cook for another minute. Add the squash, oregano and salt. Stir and cook for 2 minutes. Pour in 1/4 cup water and stir. Cover, reduce the heat and simmer 15 minutes.
- Add the tomatoes. (If not serving immediately, turn off the heat and reheat just before serving.) Cook, uncovered, at a low boil for about 5 minutes, until the liquid reduces and the squash is meltingly tender. Stir in the lemon juice and salt and pepper as needed.
