Summer is not my favorite time of the year: I just don’t like hot, humid weather. It makes me kind of listless and wilted. I don’t mind seeing winter come around because it’s my favorite cooking time.
One of my fall and winter favorites is fårikål. That’s what I started out to make today since it’s chilly, damp, grey, and seriously pluvial but I got distracted and stumbled on a similar recipe that looked so good. From the North Wild Kitchen, I found slow-roasted lamb shoulder with cabbage.
That seemed easy to adapt to cooking for one. Since my shoulder chops were nice and thick and it eliminated me having to trim them into chunks–just the thing for a lazy cook.
I have to admit that I didn’t do the apples, although I’m sure that would have been very good with it; I just didn’t want to go back out into the rain to the grocery store to retrieve an apple! ( I did say “lazy cook”.)
My only modification here (other than using chops) was to cook it in my Romertopf instead of a covered baking dish since I was making a smaller quantity for just me (and the cat).
This is another keeper for cooking lamb and cabbage!
A son gôut!
