Afghani Lamb with Spinach
4 servings

2 1/2 lb lamb stew meat, preferably leg
1/3 c olive oil
3/4 lb onions, diced large
4 ts chopped garlic
2 ts turmeric
1/4 ts nutmeg
1/4 ts ground cardamom
1 ts crushed red pepper, or to taste
1/2 ts cinnamon
32 oz can tomatoes, drain and chopped
1 c rich brown veal stock or beef stock
1/3 lb fresh spinach, washed and drained
1/2 c yogurt
1 tb grated lemon peel
salt, to taste
1/4 c pine nuts, roasted at 350 F for about 3 minutes

Sear lamb in the olive oil in a cast-iron skillet or Dutch oven.
Add the onions, saute them for 2 minutes; then add the garlic and
saute it for 1 minute. Put in the turmeric, nutmeg, cardamom,
crushed red pepper and cinnamon and saute the mixture for 1 to 2
minutes more, being careful not to burn the onions or garlic. Add
the tomatoes and veal stock and stir.

Cover the dish and bake at 350 F. for about 1 hour, until the meat
is tender and begins to break up. Remove the dish from the oven
and add the spinach, stirring until the spinach is wilted and
blended in. Allow the stew to cool slightly. Add the yogurt, lemon
peel and salt to taste. Sprinkle with roasted pine nuts.
