Serves 6


Preparation of ingredients:

  • Cut the shoulder into cubes
  • Peel and chop the onions
  • Wash and finely chop the coriander
  • Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C)

Preparation :

  • In an ovenproof casserole, heat half the butter and brown the cubes of lamb
  • Remove the lamb cubes and throw out the grease; then, add the rest of the butter and brown the onions. When they are transparent, add ¾ of the chopped coriander, the almonds, saffron, the lamb cubes, and cover with 1 ¼ cups (30 cl) water
  • Add salt and pepper, cover the casserole and place in the oven
  • Allow to cook 1 hour
  • Twenty minutes before the lamb finishes cooking, cook your potatoes in boiling salted water
  • After 1 hour, remove the casserole from the oven, then grill the lamb cutlets
  • Uncover the casserole, and put the grilled lamb cutlets on top of the lamb cubes; sprinkle on the rest of the coriander and serve immediately with the potatoes


I also like to add some cumin, which goes marvelously well with the new potatoes.
