Basque Lamb Stew Recipe

3 1/2 lbs. lamb shoulder, cut into 2 inch pieces
6 cloves garlic, crushed and peeled
1 sprig fresh rosemary
1/2 cup dry white wine
2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 large onion, peeled and chopped
Salt and freshly ground pepper
2 teaspoons sweet paprika
3 canned roasted red bell peppers, cut into 1/2 inch strips
1 large ripe tomato, peeled, seeded, and chopped
4-6 sprigs parsley, chopped
1 bay leaf
1/2 cup dry, full-bodied red wine
1/2 cup chicken stock

1 Combine the lamb, 3 of the garlic cloves, rosemary, and white wine in a medium bowl. Let marinate for 2-3 hours. Drain the meat, discard the marinade, and pat dry with paper towels. Mince the remaining 3 garlic cloves and set aside.

2 Heat olive oil in a large, heavy-bottomed pan with lid, over medium-high heat. Working in batches, brown the meat on all sides, about 10 minutes per batch. Return all meat to the pot. Add onions, minced garlic, and salt and pepper to taste, and cook, scraping browned bits stuck to the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon, until the onions are soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in paprika, add roasted peppers, tomatoes, parsley, bay leaf, and red wine. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and simmer until juices in pot reduce and thicken slightly, about 10-15 minutes.

3 Add chicken stock, cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until meat is very tender, 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Adjust seasonings.

Optional: garnish with fresh mint leaves.

1 cup kosher salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup garlic seasoning
1/4 cup chili powder
1/4 cup lemon pepper
1/4 teaspoon onion salt
1/4 cup celery salt
2 tablespoons coarse ground black pepper
2 tablespoons whole celery seeds
1 teaspoon crushed cloves

Night before smoking, trim ribs of fat. Place in large plastic bag

Sprinkle each rib with pepper and then 1/4 cup of brown sugar and
1/2 cup onion flakes. Wrap each rib in plastic and refrigerate
overnight.

The next morning remove from wrap and wipe off ribs. Coat front and
back with rib rub and rub into meat. Using a chimney charcoal
starter get 15 briquettes red hot. Place coals on end of grill and 1
pound of green hickory around coals. Use water-soaked hickory chunks
if you can’t get fresh cut hickory. Keep internal temp of grill at
200 to 255 degrees F. Add more charcoal and hickory chunks every
hour as needed. Place ribs bone side down but not directly over hot
coals.

Hawaiian Pancakes With Pineapple Syrup

Buttermilk pancakes studded with macadamia nuts and topped with homemade pineapple syrup.
Boxed buttermilk pancake mix
Macadamia nuts

Syrup:
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup pineapple juice concentrate (right out of the can)

I take the easy way by making buttermilk pancakes from a store-bought mix.  I also like these with cashews instead of Macadamia nuts.

Just add coarsely chopped macadamia nuts to the batter, as much as you’d like.

For the syrup, in a small saucepan, place butter, sugar and pineapple juice.
Heat over low heat, stirring, until butter melts. Do not boil.
