How to make the lamb stew?
Put the lamp in a hot grease pot. Cook until it becomes brown in about 5-6 minutes then add onion and garlic and ½ cup of water. Keep cooking until almost fully cooked in about 20-30 minutes (you can add more water to prevent it from getting too dry).
Next, add carrots, celery, potatoes, rosemary, bay leaves, beef stock, tomato puree, and water. Bring to a boil then keep cooking for about 10 minutes. Add the peas and cook for another 15 minutes.
Garnish with some chopped parsley and serve.
Which meat cut is the best for this stew?
I prefer to use the lamp shoulder because it gets so tender in the stew. However, you can use any part you prefer, just make sure not to get a leg of lamb which is best for grilling.
