8 small lamb chops
salt and pepper to taste
1 Tbs. vegetable oil
parsley, bay leaves, thyme, rosemary
1 lb. potatoes (3 to 4 medium)
2 cups finely shredded cabbage
1 medium onion, chopped
1 large leek, sliced thin
12 small white onions
1-1/2 C. diced celery
1-1/2 C. peas

Season chops with salt and pepper. Heat oil in saucepan wide enough to hold all chops in a single layer. Brown on both sides. Spoon off any melted fat and add enough water to cover chops. Bring to a boil and add parsley, bay leaf, peppercorns, thyme and rosemary enclosed in cheesecloth. Lower heat and simmer. Meanwhile, peel potatoes and shape into bite sized rounds. Chop trimmings from potatoes into small pieces. Add potatoes, trimmings, cabbage, onion, well-rinsed leek, white onions and celery to chops and liquid. Simmer 20 minutes then add peas. Add a little more water if needed during cooking. Simmer 10 minutes more or until potatoes are tender. Add more seasoning, if needed. Garnish with parsley and serve.

Summer Slaw

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup white vinegar
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, optional
1 package (16 ounces) coleslaw mix
2 medium tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped
1 large onion, chopped
1 small green pepper, chopped
1 small sweet red pepper, chopped
1/2 cup sweet pickle relish

In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, vinegar, oil, water, salt,
pepper and pepper flakes if desired. Cook and stir over medium heat
until mixture comes to a boil. Cook 2 minutes longer or until sugar
is dissolved. Cool to room temperature, stirring several times.

In a large salad bowl, combine the coleslaw mix, tomatoes, onion,
peppers and pickle relish. Add the dressing and toss to coat. Cover
and refrigerate overnight. Serve with a slotted spoon. Yield: 10-12

Corned Beef and Cabbage

1 corned beef brisket, about 4 lbs.*
18-20 whole cloves
1 tsp. whole yellow mustard seeds
1/2 tsp. caraway seeds
1/2 tsp. whole black peppercorns
1/2 tsp. whole coriander
3 lbs. small potatoes, peeled
2 1/2 lbs. carrots, peeled and cut into large pieces
1 medium head cabbage

Place corned beef in large stockpot. Sprinkle spices over meat, then add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer until beef is tender, about 3 hours. Drain.

About 40 minutes before beef is finished, boil a large pot of water and cook potatoes and carrots. Add cabbage about 10 minutes before you’re ready to serve as it doesn’t need to cook long. Drain vegetables. Arrange meat and vegetables on a platter and serve with your favorite mustards.

*You can buy a brisket that comes with a spice packet. If you do, then you do not need to use the mustard seeds, caraway seeds, peppercorns and coriander in the recipe.
