Famous Recipes – Lamb Stew with Olives (Spezzatino di Agnello alle Olive)

2 Tbs (30 ml) extra-virgin olive oil
2 lbs (900 g) boneless shoulder of lamb, cut into
1-inch (3 cm) cubes
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
2-3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp (5 ml) finely chopped fresh rosemary, or 1 Tbs
(15 ml) dried
1 cup (250 ml) dry white wine
1 can (15 oz, 425 g) whole tomatoes, chopped, with their liquid
1/4 cup (60 ml) chopped fresh parsley
12-18 kalamata olives, pitted if desired

Heat the oil in the bottom of a large, heavy pot over high heat.
Season the lamb with salt and pepper and, working in batches,
brown the lamb on all sides in the oil, transferring it to a plate
when it is browned. Lower the heat to medium and saute the
garlic and rosemary in the same pot for about 1 minute. Add
the wine and stir to dissolve the brown bits in the bottom of the
pot. Add the tomatoes and meat to the pot and bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat and simmer covered, stirring occasionally,
until the meat is tender, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Add the parsley and
olives and cook for 5 minutes. Serves 4 to 6.
