  • To taste Black pepper, freshly ground
  • 3 tbsp Olive oil, extra virgin

STEW

  • 1 lb Yellow onion, cut into wedges

METHOD

  • Preheat oven to 175°C / 350°F.

  • In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Working in batches, brown meat on all sides. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

  • Return lamb to pot and add potatoes, stock and thyme. Bring to a simmer.
  • Cover and bake in preheated oven until lamb is tender when probed with a knife, about 90 minutes.
  • Uncover and add peas. Cook for an additional 10 minutes. Using a large spoon, skim fat from top of broth. Divide evenly among four bowls. Serve.

NOTES

  • Alternatively, you can substitute lamb with beef chuck roast

  • Alternatively, you can use fresh peas or none at all

  • You can substitute two bay leaves for thyme

  • You may wish to add more salt to broth near the end, depending on your preference

  • Crusty white bread makes a good accompaniment
