½ tsp black pepper
1/3 cup olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 large yellow onion, large dice
2 tbsp minced rosemary
2 tbsp minced mint
1 tbsp red pepper flakes
2 cans diced roma tomatoes, with juice
2 cans GreatNorthern beans, rinsed and drained
3 cups vegetable stock
salt and pepper to taste
Combine flour, salt, and pepper. Add lamb and toss to coat.
Heat oil in large stock pot, add lamb and onion, cook stirring until meat is evenly browned and onion is slightly caramelized. Toss in minced garlic, stir, add remaining ingredients, bring to a boil. reduce heat and let simmer 45 minutes.
Lava Lake Lamb can be purchased from their website, and be shipped directly to your home. It is grass fed, hormone and antibiotic free. For people with food sensitivities it is an awesome choice, and if you just like good Lamb it’s the one of the best I’ve worked with.
