Get a taste of spring with our deliciously simple lamb stew. You’ll need just a handful of ingredients to throw together this easy one pot family meal. It’s tasty, seasonal and so simple to make.

You’ll just need celery, onions, carrots, lamb, red wine and tinned tomatoes to rustle up the lamb stew. We don’t put in anything else, we keep the flavour simple. If you like a little more umph to your stew then once you’ve served it add a sprinkling of freshly made gremolata with garlic, lemon zest and rosemary.

Preheat the oven to 180C. Add a splash of olive oil to a large pan (one you can use on the hob and in the oven) gently fry the onions, celery and carrots whilst you prepare the lamb. I use diced lamb leg and cut the pieces into small bitesize chunks as it cooks quicker.  Add the lamb to the pan and brown, tip in the red wine, add the tinned tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Pop the stew into the oven and cook for 2 hours. That’s it, all it takes to get a simple tasty lamb stew.

The lamb stew tastes delicious served with rosemary and lemon roasted baby potatoes and some purple sprouted broccoli. Any leftovers can be turned into quick pasties for dinner the next day.

Make it your way…

  • Need it to feed a few more then add a tin of chickpeas and some extra carrots.
  • Don’t want to use wine – just add vegetable stock instead
  • Want a true one pot meal – throw in some scrubbed new potatoes to cook in with the stew – you may need to pop a little more stock in if you do this.
  • Make the stew in the slow cooker if you prefer – cook on low for around 8 hours.
  • Love your leftovers – when I have this stew leftover I throw in a couple of handfuls of peas and some finely chopped mint then use it as a filling for mini pasties for dinner next day. Totally delicious.
