Moroccan Lamb Stew[p]¾ cup vegetable oil?5 lbs. lamb, cubed
4 onions?8 cloves of garlic?1 Tbsp salt?2 Tbsp turmeric?1 Tbsp ground ginger?1/2 tsp ground chipotle pepper
1 heaping Tbsp of cinnamon?1/2 tsp of freshly grated nutmeg?1 tsp black pepper?1/3 cup of honey?2 Tbsp of soy sauce?1 cup of Marsala wine?¾ cup of red lentils
To serve:?1/2 cup of Mrs. Dog’s Green Chile Pistachio Nuts*, chopped.[p]Peel the onions and garlic and process in a food processor, or chop them finely by hand. [p]Light your BGE and allow coals to get red hot. [p]Put half of the oil into a Dutch oven. Place Dutch oven directly onto hot coals. Brown the lamb, in batches, in the pan and then remove meat to a roasting pan or whatever else you've got at hand to sit them in.[p]Add the remaining oil to the pan and fry the onion-garlic mush until soft, sprinkling salt over it to stop it from sticking.
Stir in the turmeric, ground ginger, chipotle, cinnamon and nutmeg and season with some freshly ground pepper. Stir again, adding the honey, soy sauce and Marsala. Put the lamb back in the pan, add cold water almost to cover, bring to the boil and then put a lid on the Dutch oven and remove from BGE.
Replace grill grid and top with a pizza stone. Place Dutch oven on top. If your Dutch oven does not have legs, raise Dutch oven above pizza stone with BGE feet. Lower the heat and simmer (275°-300° BGE dome temp) very gently for 1-1 1/2 hours, or until the meat is tender. Add the red lentils and cook for about 20 minutes longer removing Dutch oven lid, until the lentils have softened into the sauce, and the juices have reduced and thickened slightly. Check for seasoning.
Sprinkle the nuts onto the lamb as you serve it. This aromatic, sauce-rich stew can be served with plain rice or a bowl of butter-mashed potatoes, half potatoes and half parsnips, well-seasoned and spiced with mace.
