Aromatic Lamb-Shank Stew with Couscous
I love it when a man cooks.
DH prefers cooking outdoors with a grill and a smoker, but he does have an indoor cooking repertoire. He's been known to make killer chocolate souffles, deliciously fluffy buttermilk pancakes (thanks to a sockdoc recipe), amazing latkes and Cincinnati chili--the last two his mother's recipes.
He also does stews very well. On one of the recent--and too many of late--cold, wet and rainy evenings, he made Nigella Lawson's aromatic lamb-shank stew with lentils served atop couscous. It was the perfect comfort meal.
The only downside is having to clean up after him in the kitchen. :)
