Rosemary “Curried” Lamb Rib Stew (AIP/Paleo/Sugar-Free)

It’s important to have variety in your diet in order to get a wide range of nutrients, which is what AIP is all about, nutrient density.  I can’t believe I was turned off by the thought of bone broth pre-aip. Once I started making it, I realized how flavourful it is and how my pre-conceived notions were ridiculous.  Now, I am game to try pretty much anything, IF I know it’s good for my body.  Cow tongue, no problem, I’ll try it! Kidneys? Sure, why not?! Lamb? Of course!

Now, I know lamb doesn’t come to mind when thinking of unusual protein sources, but lamb was one of those meats I rarely, if ever, ate. Being encouraged by AIP, I called up a local farm and bought some ground lamb. The farmer was so kind to give me lamb ribs for free, since they aren’t a big seller around here.  Score! After making this lamb rib stew, I can’t figure out why they aren’t popular, because, WOW, they were unbelievably tender!

I threw this stew together in my Instant Post. The Instant Pot, the kitchen appliance, Mother’s of small children dream about! I can throw a whole chicken in there and it will be ready in 25 minutes, a roast in 35 minutes, fish, 5 minutes! I don’t have to wait two whole days for bone broth, since it’s ready in four hours with the Instant Pot. I don’t even have to be home when it’s done cooking because it holds food warm for up to ten hours after it’s ready.  It’s now up there on my list of must-have kitchen appliances, up there with my beloved Vitamix. It really is multiple kitchen appliances in one pot. It’s a pressure cooker, slow cooker, yogurt maker, rice cooker, sauté-er, steamer, and warmer! Of course, I have to mention that this amazing one pot appliance is designed by Canadians. We’re awesome like that!

You know what else is awesome? This flavorful lamb rib stew!
