  • Yields: 4 servings


2 Eggplant

Kosher salt

1/2 American Lamb leg or shoulder, boneless

to taste Salt and freshly ground pepper

1 Oil

1 Onion, diced

1 Tomato paste

1 Red bell pepper, diced

1 Green bell pepper, diced

1 Curry powder

2 Lemon grass, crushed and wrapped in cheesecloth

1/2 Coconut milk

1Wash the eggplant and dry. Cut into 1/2-inch cubes and season with salt. Set aside.

2Remove any surface fat from lamb; cut into 1-inch cubes. Season with salt and pepper. In a heavy roasting pot, heat oil and sear lamb on all sides. Add onion, tomato paste and bell peppers. Dust with curry powder; sauté for 1 minute. Add lemon grass, coconut milk and broth. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Add peanut butter, cinnamon, cardamom and hot pepper flakes. Cover; simmer for 45 minutes.

3Dry the eggplant well, add to the lamb. Cook uncovered for an additional 20 to 30 minutes, until lamb is tender and sauce has thickened. Remove lemon grass; add lime juice and adjust salt and pepper as needed.

4Chef’s Recommendation: Serve Lamb and Eggplant Curry over rice with a side of fried okra.
