Can you smell it?
I don’t know what herbs other than nutmeg and coriander might be making this broth so sweet. Lean lamb, loosely hanging from small pieces of shank or rib bones melts in my mouth. As with so many of these simple Portuguese dishes, potatoes, garlic and bread are an integral part of the recipe.
Pork and clams that are so affordable for hard-working families also seem to feature in many recipes in casserole, soup, and deep fried variations. There’s plenty of olive oil in everything but my constitution can’t come at the wonderfully smelling ‘deep fried’ offerings. I leave that to Greg. A bite of his rabbit at dinner last night was delicious!
