Tender lamb chops stewed with zesty spices and sweet apricots.

Spiced Stewed Lamb Chops with Apricots from Cosmopolitan Cornbread

A couple weeks ago I made this wonderful lamb dish. I had taken photos for my typical blog post, but later when I went back to edit the photos and prepare to share this recipe with you, the photos were no where to be found! Thankfully two things had happened – I had snapped this photo to later post on Instagram and secondly, I had filmed the cooking process for a mini video.

  1. I made this wonderful lamb chop recipe using large shoulder chops and those yummy Turkish dried apricots. Can’t say enough about how all the seasonings go together. A wonderfully comforting dish. If a lamb-y taste is not at the top of your list of delicacies, not to worry. The beef broth and spices make this pure perfection.
