Slow-Cooked Lamb Shoulder with Red Wine Sauce

By Fouad Kassab - We used to serve a more complicated version of this recipe at my restaurant, Baraka. The incredibly popular dish was made by cooking the lamb in a master stock braise with burnt garlic and onions. At home, I use the recipe below, cooking the lamb in a slow cooker. It involves very little preparation time and results in a brilliantly tender and delicious meal with very little effort.

Quirky Cooking - Healing Chicken Soup

Fighting Colds & Flus, and My Healing Chicken Soup Recipe!

When you've got a cold and you're feeling sick and miserable, or you feel the need for a super nourishing meal so you don't GET sick, what do you crave? For me, it's always chicken soup.

But it's not just psychological - it really IS medicine!
