There are hardly any ingredients and most of them are usually already in the fridge.
|Old Fashion Basic Lamb Stew|
Ingredients (you can adjust the amount of ingredients to suit your family size)
Lamb chops - a cheap cut, either neck or forequarter
1 onion chopped.
4 sticks celery
2 large carrots
3 medium potatoes (or sweet potato)
flour to thicken (or Arrowroot flour)
salt and pepper to taste
|Veggies for the stew|
Heat olive oil in a pan and add lamb chops, fry until lovely and brown and caramelized. Add chopped onion and continue to fry until onion is transparent. Cover with water and stir to scrape all the lovely caramelization from the pan as this adds most of the flavour. Simmer for about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile peel the other veggies and cut into 1" cubes.
Add to the pot with some salt and pepper to taste and extra water to make sure everything is still just covered. Simmer for another 30 minutes or until the chops are tender.
Adjust seasonings and thicken with flour if it is needed.
I serve this as it is with some crusty bread to slop up all the left over juices on the plate. Leave the bread off if you are eating 'Paleo' and use Arrowroot flour to thicken.
