|David's Shami Kabob|
Mix together both the above mixtures and cook with a little water about 1hour (remember, we're talking about tough village goats and lambs, not baby lamb). When meat is done and water is gone, grind this meat very finely.
Mix ground cooked meat with remaining ingredients, form into patties, and fry in ghii until browned. (As I recall, these haven't stayed intact very well for me, though it seemed to work fine for , the cook).

|Grilled Chili-Rubbed Lamb Chops|
For the lamb:
In a small bowl, stir together the chili powder, cumin, thyme, sugar, salt, allspice, and black pepper. Sprinkle the spice mixture over the chops, rub it evenly all over the meat, and chill the chops, covered, for at least 4 hours or overnight.
Prepare a grill with glowing coals or preheat the broiler. On the oiled rack of the grill or on a broiler pan in the broiler, grill or broil the chops 4 inches from the heat for 5 to 7 minutes on each side for medium-rare meat. Serve the chops with the pepper jelly.
For the pepper jelly:
Cut the bell peppers into 1-inch pieces and in a food processor chop them very fine. Transfer the chopped peppers to a deep kettle, add the sugar, vinegar, and red pepper flakes, and bring the mixture to a boil, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the pectin and boil the mixture over moderately high heat, stirring, until it reaches the jelly stage (222F on a candy thermometer). Transfer the jelly to sterilized Mason-type jars (see sterilizing instructions on the pectin package), filling the jars to within 1/4 inch of the tops, wipe the rims with a dampened towel, and seal the jars. The jelly keeps, sealed, in a cool dark place indefinitely.
Makes about 7 cups.
Notes: This recipe is not very spicy hot at all. We use it on regular toast for breakfast as well with for the grilled lamb chops. If you want it spicy, I would recommend doubling the amount of red pepper flakes. It also makes a huge batch--could easily be halved.

|Mongolian Lamb with Shredded Scallions|
Hot Wok Ingredients:Hot Wok Sauce:
When buying lamb, purchase upper end of leg rather than shank. To reduce preparation time, ask butcher to remove bone and trim off all fat. Cut lamb into 1/8-inch-thick slices. Overlap slices and cut into matchstick pieces, about 1/4 inch wide. In small bowl, combine hoisin sauce, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, rice wine, sesame oil and garlic. Mix thoroughly with lamb and marinate lamb at least 15 minutes, not longer than 8 hours, refrigerated. Cut green onions lengthwise into very thin slivers. Cut slivers into 1 1/2-inch lengths and refrigerate. Set aside bean sprouts. In small container, set aside cooking oil. In small bowl, combine Hot Wok Sauce ingredients and set aside. Place wok over highest heat. When wok becomes very hot, add cooking oil to center. Roll oil around wok and when oil gives off just a wisp of smoke, add lamb. Stir and toss lamb until it loses its raw exterior color, about 2 minutes. Immediately stir in green onions. Stir and toss green onions to evenly combine. Stir Hot Wok Sauce and then pour it into wok. Stir and toss until all ingredients are glazed with sauce. Taste and adjust seasonings. Stir in bean sprouts and immediately transfer to heated platter or dinner plates and serve.

|New Mexico Chili with Lamb|
In a large, deep skillet, heat the oil and cook the lamb until browned on all sides. If the skillet is large enough, add the onion and garlic and cook 5 minutes longer, then transfer to a large pot. If the skillet is not large enough, remove the lamb to a large pot. Add additional oil to the skillet, if needed. Saute the onion and garlic 5 minutes, then add to the lamb. Add about 3 cups water. Bring the stew to a boil, reduce heat and simmer at least 1 1/2 hours. Add water if needed.
While the lamb is simmering, roast, peel and seed the green chiles.
Chop half the chiles and add to the stew. Put the other half in a blender or food processor with the tomato sauce and puree until smooth. Add the puree to the stew, along with the jalapenos or serranos, the oregano, and sage. About 10 minutes before the chili is done, add the fresh cilantro and salt. Taste and adjust seasonings.

Cut meat into bite sized peices. Gently fry the onion, ginger and garlic until golden using half the butter/oil. Make a masala from the spices with a little water to make a thick paste, add to the onion mixture and fry for 10 mins or until the oil separates from the ingredients.
Add the tomatoe stuff and the chillies, cook for 15 mins. while the toms and chilies are cooking fry off the meat in the rest of the butter until browned and sealed. Stick the lot into a cassarole dish and cook in an oven @ 400F, gas mark 6 for 45 mins or the meat is tender.
I reccomend you make an Indian drink with this called Lassi,mix 1pt milk, 1pt natural yoghurt salt to taste and mix in lots of shaved ice.
I wonder what it would be like using dried habs and hab powder? :-) I've got quite a reputation amongst my freinds for eating hot foods but this
one takes the biscuit, you've got to eat it quick in a resturant otherwise they make you pay for the plate and table as it burns it's way thru!
best of luck with this one

|Palatino Hot Morrocan Curried Lamb|
Hot Morrocan Curry Mixture:
Marinate raisins in red wine until plump - about two hours. Place lamb chunks and garlic in a large bowl, and combine with lemon juice and salt. Allow to marinate in refrigerator for about 2 - 3 hours. At this time combine curry spices, chop carrots and onions, and cook chick peas. Cooking the chick peas until tender may take several hours. In a large cast iron skillet or Dutch oven, heat olive oil until fairly hot. Brown the drained lamb, small amounts at a time. Do not crowd the pan. Remove the lamb to another plate when brown, and add onions and carrots to cook. When onion becomes transparent, add curry spice mixture to the pan to cook. Adjust amount of spice to your taste. Stir to keep from sticking. If more moisture is needed, add a small amount of the lemon juice marinade When the color of the spices has darkened, add red wine and raisins, stir a moment, then add lamb. Stir this until the spices well coats the meat and add the chickpeas. If more liquid is needed, add red wine left from the bottle for the raisins. Cover and bring back the heat to bubbling, then place into oven at 250 F for 2 - 3 hours, stirring occasionally. When finished, place curry in large, prewarmed serving dish, garnish with lemon zest, black olives, and parsley. Serve with eggplant, couscous, and /or pita bread.

|Pot-Roasted Kid, Locarno Style|
The recipe is from the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland, Tessin or Ticino. (It also works brilliantly with lamb.)
Cut the meat into bite-sized pieces. Sprinkle the meat with the salt and pepper. Heat the butter in a casserole, and add the sage, juniper berries, (chilies,) mint, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Cook, stirring constantly, for 3 mins. Add meat and brown on all sides. Lower heat and add wine. Simmer, covered, until meat is tender (it took me a little more than an hour with the kid I had).
Remove meat and keep warm. Strain the sauce. Put the sauce back in the casserole, and stir in the cream and rum. Bring to a boil and reduce to the consistency of heavy cream. Return the meat to the sauce and heat through. Serve with dry boiled rice and green peas. (it says here: but I served it with wide homemade egg noodles, and I think that works better than rice would, even if not strictly the way they would do it in Locarno.)
Naturally you could add fresh green or red chilies to this mixture as well. Steeping them in the rum first might be an interesting thought.

|Shashlyk (Caucasian Grilled Lamb)|
One memorable part of my 1993 visit to Russia was the "search for shashlyk." I was told that if I found good shashlyk, it would be a wonderful dining experience. Unfortunately, I had bad shashlyk in a lot of places ... try to avoid Russian dining establishments that are simply called "Cafe". I finally came across some terrific shashlyk at a little place called the Bombay Cafe, right down the street from the American Embassy in St. Petersburg. But this recipe, extracted from a Russian cookbook and slightly tweaked, was even better. I was lavishly complimented by my Russian dinner guests, who said that the only thing that wasn't authentically Russian about it was that the meat I used was too high-quality ...
The easiest way to juice the pomegranates is to carefully seed them and place the seeds into a food processor. Whiz them around for a couple of minutes, then thoroughly strain. Bottled pomegranate juice is also available in Middle Easters markets, but, of course, fresh is always better.
Combine the pomegranate juice, oil, salt, pepper, bay, thyme and garlic. Marinate the lamb overnight in this mixture. The next day, place the meat on skewers (remembering to soak them in water if you're using wooden or bamboo skewers), alternating each cube of meat with a slice of onion and/or eggplant. Grill the shashlyk over hot coals for 10 minutes. Serve with plum sauce, and with plov as a side dish. Serves 6-8, or more if you're preparing a multi-course meal.
Place the plums in a saucepan, cover with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until soft, about 6-8 minutes. Drain, then peel and pit the plums.
In a bowl mash the plums and then stir in the remaining ingredients. Transfer to a saucepan, bring to a boil, then simmer for 20 minutes.
Cool the sauce, then place in a covered container in the refrigerator overnight so that the flavors will combine. Serve at room temperature.

Place each shank, bone side up, on a piece of parchment paper. Fold up the sides into a loose package and tie around the bone with kitchen string.
Bring beer and 2 cups water to a boil in a large steamer over medium heat. Place shanks on rack above liquid. Cover and steam, add water as needed, until meat falls from bone (open one to check), about 2 hours. To serve, present shanks in their packages and unfold at the table.
