Paleo Lamb Popsicles with Fenugreek Cream Curry | Sous Vide and Stove Top


If you don't know Vancouver's Vikram Vij, you are very vvvvv…. I ran out of V-words.  What I'm trying to say is the Vikram‘s food is amazing.  I actually feel like my vocabulary is unable to describe to you the experience that your mouth and senses are in for with this recipe.

This is a paleo-ized adaptation of Vij's Marinated Lamb Popsicles with Fenugreek Cream Curry (found in Vij's: Elegant and Inspired Indian Cuisine).  Much like our Paleo Butter Chicken recipe, you're going to want to use whatever you can as a vehicle for this sauce to get into your mouth.  Riced cauliflower was the vehicle we chose today, but I will be using the leftovers on anything I can find.

ACCU SV800 Sous Vide Immersion Circulator

Instant Pot has recently come out with a new product:  a ACCU SV800 Sous Vide Immersion Circulator.  What's a sous vide and why do you need to know about it?  The quick answer is that it's a device that allows you to cook things perfectly.  To learn more, check out these quick highlights that I put together: How to Sous Vide (Sous Vide for Dummies).

Instant Pot gave us a unit to review (check out the link above) and…  one to give away to one of our fantastic readers!  (That's YOU!)  Enter here to win your own! (contest now closed)

Now, I've never used a sous vide before, but a) it's super easy to use and b) will cook your food perfectly!  Like, high-end gourmet restaurant at home perfect!  (Psst!  That's probably why so many high-end restaurants use sous vide cooking!)

In summary, sous vide cooking can create perfection.  Holley said, “This lamb is perfectly cooked.  I will only make lamb with a sous vide from now on”.  Paleo Lamb Popsicles with Fenugreek Cream Curry is amazing even without the sous vide.  Bon appetite!

  • Author: Adapted from Vikram Vij's recipe
  • Prep Time: 1-2 hours
  • Cook Time: 2 hours
  • Total Time: -25573214.266667 minute
  • Yield: 2 racks
  • Method: Sous Vide

Ingredients

Lamb

  • 1/3 cup apple juice or sweet white wine
  • 3/4 – 1 cup grainy dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 French-cut racks of New Zealand lamb (cut into chops)

Curry Sauce

  • 1 can (400ml) coconut milk
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp dried fenugreek leaves
  • 1 clove garlic (finely chopped)
  • 1/8 tsp (2 pinches) cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp ghee (or avocado oil)

Instructions

Lamb

  1. Combine ingredients for lamb in a large freezer bag, shaking to mix.
  2. Add lamb chops to bag, seal, and massage mixture into meat (vacuum seal if you can. I just used a zip-lock bag and squeezed the excess air out). Allow to marinate for 1-2 hours prior to cooking.
  3. In a large pot (or Instant Pot liner) fill with enough water to cover lamb bag – making sure that water level is within Min-Max levels of the Accu Sous Vide.
  4. Program sous vide for 136 F for 2 hours for the perfect medium-rare lamb.
  5. When the lamb is cooked, preheat cast iron pan on high. Caramelize the outside of the lamb by cooking each side briefly on each side, flipping with tongs.

Curry Sauce

  1. Stir coconut milk, paprika, salt, cayenne, lemon juice, and fenugreek leaves together in a large bowl.
  2. Heat ghee over medium heat in a saucepan and saute garlic until golden brown. Add turmeric and continue to heat for another minute. Add cream mixture, cooking for 5 minutes or until boiling gently.
  3. Serve lamb popsicles with fenugreek cream sauce over riced cauliflower.

    I would have never thought to use fenugreek that way! I love curry just about anything – thank you!

      Love this! Lamb and curry is one of the best combinations out there! Love it.

    • Raj May 22, 2017 at 5:28 pm

      Tell me about it. Curried lamb is THE dish I request when I go to my parent’s place.

    So perfect – I’ve got a few racks of lamb sitting in my freezer that I have NO idea what to do with, but I’l break out my sous vide machine and defrost the lamb and give these a try! (Bonus that I can tell my kids we are having popsicles for dinner, ha!)

    I love all lamb recipes, and this looks so good. And looks like I need to upgrade my Instant Pot because I want to start sous-videing (is that a word?)!

    • Raj May 16, 2017 at 1:35 pm

      Well, this little ACCU Vide can be used in any big pot or container, but word on the street is that one or more of the new Instant Pot designs will allow for a type of sous videing (pretty sure it IS a word. At least it is here and now), minus the water movement.

    Woah! I’d never used a sous-vide before either, but after this recipe and seeing your review of how easy it is…I may have to bite the bullet and just do it, ha!
