Fall-off-the-bone, low carb goodness!
Lamb stew is hearty, thick and full of amazing nutrients! After visiting an amazing Greek Restaurant in Brooklyn, NY, Elia, we were inspired to create a keto braised lamb recipe of our own! Taking a leaf out of the ancient Celtics’ cookbook, we used our dutch oven, which is similar to the cauldrons they used in the seventh century! Dutch ovens are extremely expensive, but for good reason! They are ideal for using on slow roasting recipes such as stews and casseroles. We invested in our dutch oven but there are several budget friendly options. It’s a piece of cookware that you will have for years; they’re made with such quality materials for the most difficult of recipes and can outlast many of your usual pots and pans. My mother has scary looking one all the way from Russia from about 20 years ago! And, of course, she still uses it today.
Braising is a form of cooking that utilizes dry and wet cooking. First, you sear the lamb in oil on a hot pan and then you submerge it to slow cook in broth and wine! This will ensure the outside of the meat is crispy and brown while the inside just falls off the bone. If you skip searing, you’ll still have a tasty lamb stew, but you’ll be missing the crisp outer shell that you get from searing it first.
To start, remember to always buy your meat from a reliable source! Check out our Filet Mignon recipe for some more info on meats and different cuts! Make sure to add dry red wine to the broth – it really adds a deeper flavor. Using dry wine as opposed to sweet wine will help ensure less sugar content and a more natural wine product. The driest red wines include Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot; the driest whites are Sauvignon Blanc and Albarino. For this recipe, we used our favorite Cabernet Sauvignon, Woodbridge.
Consider making some home-made tzaziki sauce too! It’s a refreshing pairing to the hearty lamb stew!
