This casserole is fall on a plate. It is rich, delicious comfort food, but can be made in about a half hour. If you are looking for something new, try this recipe.
Most recipes for lamb neck call for a long slow cook, but I just had a slice and I didn't have three hours. I started by searing it on both sides in butter, oil, and rosemary, about five minutes per side. Then I added in some sliced shallot and cooked that down for a minute or two. I deglazed the pan with red wine and then added a cup of vegetable broth. I simmered it on low turning every fifteen minutes or so for about an hour. I finished it off with chopped fresh rosemary and crumbled feta cheese.
St. Patrick's Day is a favorite holiday of mine. I like a good excuse to eat and drink and won't say no to corned beef, cabbage and whiskey. I'm never that excited for leftover corned beef though. It's just not the type of thing I want to eat twice in one week. So tonight I decided to go in a very different direction and turn my leftovers into pizza.
