    4                    Lamb chops*
      1/2   c            All-purpose flour
    1       lb           White cabbage -- cored, and
                         Thinly sliced
    2       tb           Butter
      1/2   c            Hot water
    3       tb           Whole black peppercorns
                         *Thin round-bone shoulder
                         -lamb chops, trimmed but
                         Some fat.
   Directions: Directions: Lightly salt the chops, preferably an hour before
   you plan to cook them. Oil a heavy casserole that can be placed on top of
   the stove and that is just wide enough to hold two chops.
   Put in two chops and sprinkle them with flour.  Place a 1/2 to 1-inch layer
   of cabbage over them, sprinkle with salt and then flour, and dot with
   butter. Continue making layers, ending with cabbage and a little butter.
   Pour on the hot water.
   Tie the peppercorns securely in cheesecloth and lightly bruise them with a
   rolling pin, or bruise them with pestle and mortar and put them in a metal
   spice-holding ball.  Bury the peppercorns in the casserole.
   Cover and bring to the boil.  Immediately lower the heat and simmer very
   gently for about 1 1/2 hours, until the meat is very tender and the cabbage
   almost melted.  Remove the peppercorns.  Serve with boiled potatoes.
