In this healthy lamb stew recipe, rhubarb contributes a savory-tart flavor. Pork shoulder would be good in place of the lamb if you prefer. Serve over whole-wheat couscous or an aromatic brown rice, such as basmati or jasmine.

Preparation

  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. Season lamb with 1 teaspoon each salt and pepper.
  3. Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until they start to brown around the edges, 6 to 10 minutes. Add garlic, cinnamon sticks, cumin seeds, ginger and cayenne; cook, stirring, for 1 minute more. Add tomatoes and their juice, rhubarb, broth, raisins (or currants) and brown sugar; increase heat to high and bring to a lively simmer. Nestle the lamb into the stew and cover with a tight-fitting lid. Transfer to the oven.
  4. Bake until the lamb is meltingly tender, about 2 hours.
  5. Increase oven temperature to 425 degrees . Uncover the pot and bake until the sauce has slightly reduced, 30 to 45 minutes. Season with the remaining ⅛ teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper. Serve topped with parsley.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
