How to Cook Braised Lamb with Dried Fruit
- Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the diced lamb and cook it until browned on all sides, while stirring often.
Season it with salt and pepper, thyme, and garlic. Cook for around 5 minutes.
- Add the dried cherries, apricots, and the red wine. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat. Cook until the wine reduces by half.
- Pour the beef stock, and simmer for around 30 minutes, on low heat, until the meat is tender, and the sauce is thick and glossy.
- You can serve it with a nice side of mashed potatoes!
