Brown Stew is not just for Chicken and Fish. This Brown stew Lamb uses popular Caribbean flavors with the addition of a few Indian spices that heighten the flavors of the lamb. This is the perfect dish for the fall and winter months.

I love the Fall. It reminds me of family, roasts, soups and stews and of course, Lamb.

Similar to my Succulent Stewed Oxtail post, the Island method of stewing always involves a cast iron pan or dutch pot and slow cooking until the meat is tender.

Ingredients

Classic Caribbean flavors are used to flavor this dish with the following seasonings and herbs:

  • Browning (or brown sugar)
  • spring onion
  • bell peppers
  • scotch bonnet
  • fresh thyme and parsley
  • chopped tomatoes
  • onions
  • garlic
  • ginger

These ingredients are the base of this delicious stew sauce and already in the kitchen or easily accessible at a local grocer.

Brown stew lamb chops are seared then rested in a tomato and onion based spicy sauce.

These lamb chops were really easy to cook because they are small and not very thick. They were coated in the ingredients above and left to marinate for over an hour or so. The chops were then seared and eventually rested into a simmering tomato onion based sauce.

Tips and Tricks

Here are a few things to think about when making Stewed lamb:

  • Low and slow – for tender chops cook on a low to medium low heat for at least 35 min to allow the chops to get tender. The thicker the chop the longer it takes to cook
  • Sear the meat – searing allows the meat to lock in its juices and gives it a beautiful color.
