 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2       T            Butter or margarine
    2       lb           Shoulder lamb chops
                         Salt and pepper
    8       oz           Pineapple chunks in unsweet-
                         Ened juice, undrained
      1/4   c            Firm packed dark brown sugar
      1/4   c            White vinegar
    1       T            Cornstarch
      1/2   t            Brown bouquet sauce
    2                    Carrots, peeled and
                         -thinly sliced
    1       lg           Green pepper, cut into
                         -1-inch squares
 
   I. Melt butter in a heat-resistant, non-metallic broiler-proof skillet on a
   conventional surface unit. When butter is hot, sear lamb chops on both
   sides until lightly browned. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Or use
   the “browner” for 4 to 5 minutes per side. 2. While the chops are browning,
   drain pineapple juice into a small heat-resistant, non-metallic bowl.
   Reserve pineapple chunks; add brown sugar, vinegar, cornstarch and brown
   bouquet sauce to pineapple juice. Stir to combine. 3. Heat pineapple juice
   mixture, uncovered, 2 minutes in Micro- wave Oven or until thickened and
   clear. 4. Pour thickened sauce over browned lamb chops. 5. Add carrot
   slices and heat, covered, 5 minutes in Microwave Oven. Add pineapple chunks
   and heat, covered, 2 1/2 minutes in Microwave Oven. Add green pepper
   squares and heat, un- covered, in Microwave Oven 2 1/2 minutes, or until
   lamb and vegetables are tender. Variations: Pork chops, veal chops,
   boneless chicken pieces or shrimp may be substituted for the lamb chops;
   however, cooking times will have to be adjusted for pork, chicken, and
   shrimp. Pork chops will require an extra 2 minutes in Step 5, as pork
   should always be cooked to well-done. Chicken should be cooked for only 4
   minutes in Step 5 and shrimp 3 minutes.
