Lamb, pomegranate (Russian?) recipe

whinendine Dec 26, 2012 01:40 AM

Long ago, a lady in the neighborhood borrowed my steamer to make a lamb and pomegranate dish. Does anyone know what is the name of the dish and a recipe? I've come into quite a bit of pomegranates which reminded me of this...

    Not familiar with Russian recipes - but there are Georgian and Persian recipes that combine the two ingredients in a number of recipes.

      +1 on the Persian recipes e. g. bademjan, which uses pomegranate syrup.

      Yes, I found Georgian and Uzbeki recipes, but none that use a steamer.

        I have a Russian cookbook (Please to the Table) which has lamb and beef meatballs in pomegranate sauce which is not what you are looking for but nothing that corresponds to what you describe. You can google these meatballs which are called fesinjan kyufta, there are many online recipes.

          I've had shaslyk in Russia that has been marinated in pomgranate...one friend ther told me not to marinate American lamb as long because it is younger than the usual Russian (Don;t know the accuracy of that statement). Never heard of a steamer being used with lamb though. It is also used to marinate young garlic

            Thank you GretchenS and hazelhurst for the information. I will search on shaslyk and fesinjan kyufta. I found shaslyk before I posted, but it was not steamed like you said.
