Red-cooked mongolian lamb

Yield: 10 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 \N Boneless lamb shoulder; 2-2.5 pounds; trimmed
4 tablespoons Cornstarch; divided use
2 \N Cloves (large) garlic; minced
2 tablespoons Vegetable oil
1 can (14.5-oz) chicken broth
¼ cup Naturally brewed soy sauce
¼ cup Dry sherry
1 tablespoon Brown sugar
1 tablespoon Slivered fresh ginger root
1 \N Small; whole, dried red chile
3 mediums Carrots; roll-cut into 1-inch pieces (see note)
1 \N Bunch green onions and tops; cut into 1-1/2 inch pieces; separating white from tops
⅓ cup Hot water
\N \N Hot cooked rice

Cut lamb into 1-½ inch cubes; coat with 2 tablespoons of the cornstarch.

Brown lamb and garlic in hot oil in large skillet over medium heat. Pour chicken broth over lamb. Stir in soy sauce, sherry, brown sugar, ginger and chile. Cover; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 1 hour and 20 minutes; stir occasionally.

Add carrots and white parts of green onions. Cover and simmer 40 minutes.

Meanwhile, blend remaining cornstarch with ⅓ cup water; stir into pan with green onion tops. Cook and stir until mixture boils and thickens, about 1 minute. Serve over rice. Makes 10 servings.

NOTE: To roll-cut a carrot, make a diagonal slice at one end, roll the carrot a quarter turn and make another diagonal cut; continue rolling and cutting to the end.
