Yoda Stew

You will need:
  • 3 pounds lean lamb or other meat
  • Salt and pepper, as desired
  • 6 tablespoons oil
  • 6 cups parsley
  • 3 cups onions
  • 1 tablespoon garlic
  • 2 teaspoons coriander
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 2 tablespoons ginger root
  • 1 teaspoon hot green or red chilies
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3 pounds fresh spinach
  1. Slice lamb (or other meat) into cubes about one-inch thick.
  2. As desired, season the meat with salt and pepper.
  3. Add 3 tablespoons oil to a fry pan along with the seasoned lamb.
  4. Stir over medium-low heat until meat has browned, and then remove from heat.
  5. Meanwhile, chop parsley, onions, garlic, ginger root, and chilies finely.
  6. Add chopped ingredients except for ginger root and chilies to a Dutch oven along with the remaining 3 tablespoons oil.
  7. Heat and mix the ingredients until the onions have wilted.
  8. Add lamb, coriander, cumin, tumeric, ginger root, chilies, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, bay leaf, and additional salt and pepper as desired.
  9. Add water to cover and mix well.
  10. Bring to a boil, then cover and allow to simmer until lamb is tender (about 2 hours).
  11. Five minutes before 2 hours is up, rinse spinach and place in a pot of boiling water until wilted (about 5 minutes).
  12. Drain, chop, and finally mix spinach into the Dutch oven, allowing it to lend its flavor to the stew (about 5 minutes).
  13. Serve over white rice, and feel the force flow through you.

Yoda stew is a curry - that is my curry recipe almost to the ingredient except I also add mushrooms and tomatoes. I will have to give Yoda stew a try!

Me: I won't fail you...I'm not afraid to use cloves in a meat recipe.

Yoda: You will be. You...will... be.
