Lamb with Persian Rhubarb Sauce
Place rhubarb in bowl, stir in sugar and 3/4 cup water, set aside for 30 minutes then drain, saving syrup.
In a 10 inch skillet melt butter. Saute lamb, onion and seasonings until meat is browned on all sides. Stir in parsley and saute a few minutes more. Stir in rhubarb syrup. Cover and simmer gently 40 minutes. Stir in drained rhubarb. Cover and continue simmering 20 - 30 minutes or until meat
is tender. Combine cornstarch and 1 tablespoon water. Stir into meat mixture and cook gently for 2 -3 more minutes. Serve over cooked hot rice.
* In place of fresh rhubarb one can (1 pound) of colored rhubarb may be used. In so doing, use 1/2 cup water and omit sugar.
"Cook'sTips": We found this dish to be a bit too sweet. I'd suggest using less sugar. The lamb will not brown properly if it's cooked in with the onions. Brown the lamb in the butter BEFORE you
add the onions. I measured the spices and mixed them together. I put half the spices in with the lamb when I browned it then added the rest in with the onions. If you cut the rhubarb too small they'll totally disappear in the sauce.
