Braised Shoulder Lamb Chops – a Low Energy Approach

Carole's Chatter: Braised Shoulder Lamb Chops - a low energy approach

So I had run out of energy for the day but needed to make dinner.  So I went as simple as I could.


Lamb shoulder chops
Tomato Paste
Beef gravy powder
Bottle of beer – lager
Soy sauce
Worcestershire Sauce
Pepper/Cayenne pepper


I had salted the lamb in the morning and left it in the fridge but other than this, everything was chucked together.

So I put a bit of oil in the bottom of the casserole dish.  Then in went the chops and the seasonings.  Lastly I poured the beer over the lot and let it sit on a low electric element until the lamb was tender – about 4 hours.

At this stage the liquid was quite runny still so I took out the chops and covered them with foil while I boiled the liquid until it had reduced to a nice gravy – about 10 minutes – then in again with the chops.

This made a nice meal with rice and peas.


  1. I love lamb chops. Sometimes lazy is the way to go.

  2. Great minds! I did lamb as well this weekend, mine in the slow cooker, tagine style.
