Pairing lamb with bold spices makes me swoon. These lamb chops are coated in a pungent spice rub and cooked in stewed onions, roasted red peppers, and parsley. The chops pair beautifully with Simple Salad (here).

1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil ½ cup diced onion ½ cup diced roasted red pepper 2 tablespoons fresh parsley ½ cup red wine ⅛ teaspoon sea salt Freshly ground black pepper 1 teaspoon minced garlic ½ teaspoon minced fresh rosemary 1 teaspoon smoked paprika 2 bone-in lamb shoulders, trimmed of fat 2 red potatoes, unpeeled, quartered

1. Grease the inside of the slow cooker with the olive oil.

2. Put the onion, red pepper, parsley, and wine into the slow cooker.

3. In a small bowl, combine the salt, a few grinds of the black pepper, garlic, rosemary, and paprika. Rub this mixture over the lamb chops. For even better flavor, do this one day ahead
to allow all the flavors of the rub to permeate the meat. Place the chops into the slow cooker on top of the onion and wine mixture. The chops may need to slightly overlap one another to fit.

4. Place the potatoes on top of the lamb.

5. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.

COOKING TIP Lamb often contains more fat than beef. To minimize the fat content of the finished recipe, trim all visible fat from the lamb and sear it in a hot skillet for 2 minutes on each side to render some of the fat and improve the flavor of the finished dish.
