Preparation time: 30 minutes

  • 2 tsp. sesame or sunflower oil
  • 1 lb. lamb meat (leg or stew meat) cut into 1/2-x-1-inch slices
  • 1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbs. minced gingerroot
  • 2 to 3 tbs. Thai red curry paste
  • 2 cups thinly sliced carrots (about 2 medium)
  • 1 bunch asparagus, cut into 2-inch lengths
  • 1 15-oz. can coconut milk
  • Salt
  • 8 oz. brown-rice noodles, steamed brown rice, or roasted potatoes
  • 1/2 cup fresh Thai basil, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges

Heat the sesame oil in a cast-iron skillet and add the lamb and onions. Sauté until the onions begin to caramelize. Add the gingerroot, curry paste, carrots, and asparagus.
