Braised Shoulder Lamb Chops with Figs and North African Spices
Why This Recipe Works
Because shoulder chops are not a tough cut of meat, they didn’t need to cook for a long time for the sake of tenderness. We tried a much shorter braise than usual for our lamb chops—just enough to cook the meat. After just 15 to 20 minutes, the lamb was tender, and the much-anticipated sauce we made with the deglazing liquid was delicious.
