Lamb stew and new mini potatoes



  1. Step 1

    Cut lamb into 2.5 cm (1 inch) pieces; set aside.
  2. Step 2

    In bowl, toss lamb with flour, oregano and pepper. In Dutch oven or large saucepan heat oil over medium high heat and brown lamb, reserving any remaining flour. Remove lamb to plate and reduce heat to medium. Add 125 mL (1/2 cup) of the broth and stir to lift up brown bits from pan.
  3. Step 3

    Add leeks, carrots and garlic; cook, stirring for 5 minutes or until softened. Stir in remaining flour mixture until vegetables are coated. Add tomato sauce, remaining broth, browned lamb and potatoes and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer for 1 hour or until lamb and potatoes are tender. Stir in peas and cook uncovered for 5 minutes.


  • Tip 1

    You can purchase 1 kg (2 lbs) of bone in lamb such as lamb loin or shoulder chops and trim visible fat and bones to get the 450 g (1 lb) of lean lamb for the stew.
