Lamb Soup With Spring Vegetables

Yield Makes 6 servings
This soup is delicious with lots of hot bread. The Citrus-Mint Gremolata brightens up the whole dish, so you may want to make a double batch and serve some on the side for guests to use as they please.


  • 3 pounds boneless lamb shoulder, cubed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 5 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups dry white wine
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 pound baby carrots
  • 1 (16-ounce) bag frozen whole pearl onions, unthawed
  • 1/2 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
  • Citrus-Mint Gremolata

How to Make It

  1. Sprinkle lamb evenly with salt, pepper, and flour. Cook lamb in hot oil in a large Dutch oven, stirring constantly, over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes or until browned. Add garlic, and sauté 2 minutes.

  2. Add wine, and cook, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes. Stir in beef broth and next 3 ingredients, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 2 hours.

  3. Stir in baby carrots and pearl onions; cook, uncovered, 10 minutes. Add green beans, and cook 15 minutes. Serve hot with Citrus-Mint Gremolata.
