Lamb chops and peppers


serves 4
4 large loin lamb chops, trimmed
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 medium onions, thinly sliced
1 clove garlic, chopped (optional)
500 g (1 lb) tomatoes, skinned, deseeded and chopped
2 green peppers, deseeded and cut into strips
1 red pepper, deseeded and cut into strips
1 teaspoon crushed coriander seeds (optional)
salt and freshly ground black pepper
150 ml (1/4 pint) dry white wine
1 tablespoon tomato puree


1. Heat the oil in a large frying-pan over high heat. Brown the chops on
both sides, frying in 2 batches if necessary.

2. With all the chops in the pan, lower the heat, put in onions and garlic, if using, and cover pan. Cook for about 10 minutes until the onions and garlic are soft and beginning to colour.

3. Add the tomatoes, peppers, coriander and salt and pepper to taste. Re-cover the pan and cook for a further 15 minutes or until the chops are tender.

4. Remove chops from pan and keep hot. Raise the heat and stir the wine into the pan. Cook rapidly, uncovered, until the liquid in the pan is reduced by half, stirring constantly.

5. Stir in the tomato puree and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning.

6. Place the chops on a warmed serving platter, then spoon the sauce over them. Serve at once.

What i did was boil the lamb chops first, just to make sure it was the meat was properly cooked, others may think this is not a good idea because it takes the juice out from the meat. Then i did the peppers and onions in a different pan put olive oil and strips of peppers, mushrooms and spring onions. I then put chillis to give it that spicy taste along with salt, pepper. This tasted great. You can put what ever you want or like in the peppers to give it that taste. I then chilled the meat for 1 hour then i put them in the grill to cook. Once that was cooked i ganished the peppers on the meat along with parsely. This was a great meal and all my family loved it.
