Apricot Lamb Curry

I think sometimes the reason why people don't cook a lot with Lamb is that they don't know how to fix it, or think they have to do something fancy with them.  Lamb Chops sometimes taste the best when the recipe is the simplest.  Today I'm sharing an Apricot Lamb Curry recipe that you make in the crock pot.  The flavors of the curry and apricot give the lamb a nice spicy flavor, and you can put your ingredients in the crock pot in the morning and forget all about it till dinner time.   
Another reason I enjoy this recipe is that it calls for some wine, and nothing taste better than using wine in a recipe and then enjoying a glass of that same wine with your dinner.  I choose a Shiraz wine for this but I'm certain any dry red would work just fine.

Ingredients: 6-8 Lamb Chops, 1/4 cup red wine, 2 tsp. crushed garlic, 1 T. curry powder, 1/2 cup Apricot nectar/juice, dash of basil, thyme and rosemary and 2 cups vegetables (I used carrots, but you could use potatoes or green bean or whatever your preference.)
Directions:  Mix wine, garlic, curry powder, herbs and apricot nectar/juice together.  Place the vegetables in a greased crock pot, or use a liner.  Place the meat on top of the vegetables.  Pour your liquid mixture on top, cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours. 
Serves 2-3 people.
