Lamb casserole with prunes recipe
- Cuisine: Israeli
- Serves 6–8
1.5 kg (3 lb) lamb forequarter chops
6 onions, finely sliced
2 tablespoons olive oil
6 saffron threads
1⁄2 cup red wine
1 cup water
3 tablespoons raisins
1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1⁄4 teaspoon ground mace
2 tablespoons chicken stock powder

1⁄4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Combining meat with dried fruit is typically Middle Eastern.
Preheat the oven to 250°C (500°F). Heat a non-stick frying pan and seal the lamb chops on both sides, so that they retain their shape during cooking.
To make the sauce, heat the oil in a frying pan and sauté the onions until browned. Soak the saff ron threads in ¼ cup of hot water until the water changes colour. Combine the onions and saff ron in a deep saucepan with remaining sauce ingredients. Bring to the boil.
Line a baking tray with half the sauce. Add the meat and then cover with remaining sauce.
Cover tray with foil, and cook in the oven for 1 hour. Lower temperature to 180°C (350°F) and cook for another hour. Serve hot with couscous.
