  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Soups

 Ingredients List

  • 1 pk Split peas,green or yellow
  • 4 c Thinly sliced celery
  • 1 Large onion,chopped
  • 1/2 lb Boned lamb shoulder or neck*
  • 2 Garlic cloves,chopped
  • 1 Large dried bay leaf
  • 7 c Chicken broth


* - cut into 1/2" chunks

1. Sort peas, discarding any debris. Rinse peas; drain, and set aside.
2. In a 5-6 quart pan over high heat, combine celery, onion, lamb, garlic,
bay leaf, and 1/2 cup water. Cover and simmer rapidly for 10 minutes.
Uncover, turn heat to high, and stir often until browned bits stick in pan.
Deglaze by adding 1/3 cup water and stirring to scrape browned bits free.
Stir often until liquid evaporates and browned bits form again. Repeat
deglazing step several more times until vegetables are a rich brown, about
30 minutes total.
3. To pan, add split peas and 7 cups chicken broth; bring to a boil on high
heat. Cover and simmer until peas mash easily, about 1 hour.
4. Discard bay leaf. (You can chill soup atthis step, and continue the next
day.) Transfer 3 cups soup (but no meat) to a blender or food processor.
Whirl until smoothly pureed. Return to pan. For thinner soup, add more
broth. Stir on high heat until hot.
