Lamb Mole de Olla
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Mexican
  • •2 lbs lamb shoulder or stewing lamb
  • •about 3.5oz of guajillo peppers
  • •1/2 large onion
  • •2 garlic cloves
  • •1/2 lb zucchini, cut in large slices
  • •1/2 lb green beans
  • •2 chayotes, in large slices
  • •2 corn ears, cut sideways in small cylinders
  • •salt and pepper to taste
  1. In a pressure cooker cook the lamb for about 20 minutes.
  2. In a small sauce pan boil guajillo peppers with onion and garlic. When it cools down blend it all together in a blender and pour the mixture into a large pot through a fine-mesh sieve pressing slightly.
  3. Add salt and pepper to taste and bring to a boil.
  4. Add some of the broth from the lamb and the vegetables and bring to a boil. The stew has to be thin, almost like a soup. If the lamb meat is still a little tough add to the pot, too.
  5. When it starts boiling reduce heat to low and let it simmer for 25-30 minutes. Adjust seasoning if necessary.
  6. Serve with slices of avocado, lime wedges and chopped onion and enjoy!
