FFwD - Braised Cardamom-Curry Lamb


This week's French Friday with Dorie recipe is Braised Cardamom-Curry Lamb.  As the name suggests, it is lamb cooked with curry powder and ground cardamom, with potatoes, raisins and figs thrown into the mix.

It doesn't look pretty: 


but it was tasty.  I like fruit with my meat - it's the sweet and salty thing.

I would say if it tasted good then it doesn't matter of it looks bad.

Ooh love the sound of this. I'm not a huge fruit lover with meat but figs and lamb are just a perfect combo! :D

This was an intersting one - I wasn't sure what the end result would be (esp. since I used beef instead of lamb).
The green veggies do help liven it up though! Good work.
Have a great weekend.

Well, as long as it was tasty, then I'll definitely have to give this a try when I'm feeling better.

I'm glad you liked it! I love stews, and I ramped up the heat a lot ...

The vegetables that you paired your lamb with are so colorful and balance the color of the dish! I'm glad you liked the sweet and spicy of this as well. I am so glad this was on the schedule for us this week. I hope you are having a good weekend!

It looks plenty tasty to me! Great job, I have to make this one as I am learning how to cook with lamb these days and the flavorings in this one sound really wonderful.
