I was meant to make the Braised Cardamom-Curry Lamb for this week’s French Fridays with Dorie group.
However, unlike last week, I looked at the recipe with my husband and kids around me.
Lamb with apples, figs and raisins!
It was too late!
They saw the recipe and knew too much.
I didn’t even attempt to convince them it would be okay.
I felt tired, weak and outnumbered.
So, I caved.
I chose the safer option.
Dorie’s ‘My Go-To Beef Daube’.
I joined the group after this recipe had been made and always thought I’d like to try it.
So I did!
The preparation was simple and the smells that filled the house were incredible.
It made me feel happy, content, and filled us all with anticipation for the final product.
I’ve been raised on Yugoslav “manja”, so while I found this a little bland, everyone else in my family enjoyed it.
I can’t wait to read what the French Fridays with Dorie gang thought of the Braised Cardamom-Curry Lamb.
Now that sounds like an intense and exciting flavour experience!
Right up my alley!
