Recipe challenge ingredients

Braise — Brown it, simmer it, sauce it.

Lamb — An acquired taste for some, but that's why we're here.

Polenta — Boiled cornmeal served as a porridge or solidified and baked, fried, or grilled.

Thyme — Herbaceous, savory, and great in roasted dishes, in marinades, and most anywhere else.

Onion — No pantry should be without a supply of these.

Parsnip — An often overlooked root.

Braise: lamb, polenta, thyme, onion, and parsnip

Lamb and parsnips make a great stew served over polenta. What else can you do with these ingredients?

The combination of lamb, parsnip, and polenta will get you started for protein, veggies, and carbs. Add flavor and character to the meal with thyme and onion.

You might want to combine the ingredients into a single meal — on a sheet pan or in a crock pot, for example — or separate them into multiple dishes. Whatever you decide, we suggest you braise at least one of the dishes.
