Chakapuli (lamb chops)


2 pounds of shoulder lamb chops
1 onions, peeled and chopped
1 cup of dry white wine
1/2 cup Tkemali sauce
3 cups loosely packed fresh tarragon leaves
1 cup of loosely packed mixed fresh herbs (parsley, mint, dill, cilantro)
1 large garlic clove, peeled and minced
1/2 teaspoon of salt

How to cook:

Place lamb chops in a single layer in a flameproof casserole and top it with chopped onions. Pour in the white wine. Cover the casserole and bring to a boil. Transfer to the oven and braise the lamb until tender, about 1 1/2 hours.

Coarsely chop the fresh herbs. When the lamb is ready, stir in the tkemali sauce, the herbs, the minced garlic, and salt. Return the casserole to the oven and cook 5 minutes longer. Let the lamb sit 5 minutes before serving.
