Lamb stew

Lamb stew

What do you do when you know you are going to be very busy for the next few days but still have to feed the family? Well, this is what I did…..a BIG pot of lamb stew! It worked. My family had it for 2 consecutive days for lunch and dinner! To my huge surprise, NO one complained. Well, actually no one dared to complain…haha. Whoever complains will either have to cook, go without food or go and buy herself/himself! I should do that more often huh….*wink*

By the way, it is believed that lamb is very ‘heaty’. It is still very cold here so it’s good for us. But if you live in a hot country, you can always freeze some.

I’m keeping this post short so that I can sleep early. I think I have not fully recovered from my tiredness after my badminton competition followed by the Abernethy retreat.

Here’s my Lamb Stew recipe:

Ingredients A
2 kg lamb meat (cut into bite size pieces)
6 red onions (peeled and dice)
2 celery sticks (cut into slices)
3 carrots (peeled and cut)
3 tomatoes (cut into wedges)
1 knob ginger (sliced)
1/2 whole garlic (peeled)

Ingredients B (seasoning)
2C red wine
1/2C oyster sauce
1/2C light soya sauce
2T sesame oil
1/2C chilli sauce (optional)
1T ground black pepper (optional)

diced lamb

Put everything into a big pot and let it cook under medium fire until cooked.

Serve hot with rice. It’s very delicious. It’s very spicy so if you are not into spicy food, you can omit the chilli sauce and the black pepper. My family likes it very much. Hope you like it too. For your info, it was too spicy for me. I would cut down on the pepper if I cook this lamb stew again next time.

Jeannie  on April 19th, 2011

That is a big pot of lamb stew indeed….but I know I would love to have some of this..long time didn’t eat lamb already! Looks so yummy!

Ginny Hartzler  on April 19th, 2011

This looks wonderful, so yummy!! I have only had lamb a few times, when I used to make Irish Stew many years ago. But I cannpt find lamb in the grocery store!!

Lyndsey  on April 19th, 2011

It is very hot here now, but this sounds like a good meal for this time of year. I always have to adjust the chili for my husband and add a little more for myself. Take it easy and rest now! :D

claire  on April 20th, 2011

Though I dont take lamb stew much but looking at the tomatoes and the sauce, i have to swallow something a while ago.. lol….

penny aka jeroxie  on April 20th, 2011

I am the one pot wonder queen. Always cooking more for weekdays lunch and dinner

Priya  on April 20th, 2011

Wish i enjoy this great looking stew rite now,drooling here..

Von  on April 20th, 2011

My mum makes stews and curries and freezes them whenever she’s too busy to cook for a couple of days or when she goes overseas :D Your lamb stew looks delicious! My family doesn’t really like lamb much so I don’t get to each lamb often :(

Catherine  on April 20th, 2011

I’ve never seen a stew like it, Mary, I bet it’s delicious! I do love a warm, comforting stew; I could have it on the warmest of days! Hope you have a nice rest! :)

Mimi  on April 20th, 2011

I love the spiciness of your stew.

Cheah  on April 20th, 2011

Ha, ha, as long as they don’t complain, they can continue to eat it for another day! Bet your stew tastes better the next day.

anncoo  on April 20th, 2011

I don’t mind to have this delicious lamb stew for two days too!

Anna Johnston  on April 20th, 2011

Mary, you have really achieved a rich spicy flavour to this delicious stew, I love the whole nob of ginger addition, that would really help to make this lamb stew so warming, no wonder your family gobbled it all up 2 days running - I’d be looking for it on the 3rd day, it looks amazing :)

uncle Lee  on April 20th, 2011

Hi Mary, dropping by your place here like getting tortured, ha ha.
That lamb stew of yours is food for the Gods!
You sure you not a Swiss Finishing School graduate? Ha ha.
I can practically get the lovely scent of your ingredients used.
Can go with toast bread? Ha ha.

You have a nice day and keep a song in your heart.

This “big pot” idea goes in my family too. For example, I just cooked a big pot of beans, potatoes and veggies today cos I am not planning (will be busy!) to cook for the next 2 days.

teresa  on April 20th, 2011

mmmm, it looks so rich and hearty, delicious!

nammi  on April 21st, 2011

nothing beats a big hearty meat stew, looks delicious.

Barbara  on April 21st, 2011

Freezing this is a great suggestion, Mary. I always think stews taste better the second day or after they have been frozen, don’t you? Have never made one with soy and oyster sauce. Sounds wonderful.

Swathi  on April 21st, 2011

I won’t eat any meat, this dish looks delicious, sure it is great treat for a meat lover.

peteformation  on April 21st, 2011

Bought some lamb chunks yesterday. Already marinated them for deep frying.

Faith  on April 22nd, 2011

Hi Mary! I’m back from vacation and happy to be catching up on my blog reading — I missed you! What a great pot of stew! It’s still pretty cold here and this would be just perfect!

kitchen flavours  on April 22nd, 2011

Your lamb stew looks delicious! My daughter loves lamb stew. These would be really good with some French bread! Yummy! Hope you are fully rested after all the excitement! Happy Easter! Have a lovely weekend!

Katerina  on April 23rd, 2011

You found a great way to not only feed your family but feed them with a hearty and comforting meal as well.

Light Delight with TouTou  on May 1st, 2011

Totally agree!!! If I am going to be busy for the week, I will work on a big pot of stew / soup during the weekend!
I really like lamb , yet unfortunately I can not get them in our supermarket :-(. Your lamb stew makes me drooling!!! Maybe I should get some lamb Kabob!

Sidney  on May 3rd, 2011

This looks good…i prefer the curry mutton cooked by indians…they are good in that…

Cooking Gallery  on May 5th, 2011

This looks so comforting, Mary, I can have this anytime…!!

Happy Mother’s Day!

aesh came  on May 8th, 2011

Aah those variety of veggies looks healthy! I love lamb. I bet this stew tastes great, just as the picture is. Thanks for sharing.

lena  on May 9th, 2011

hi mary, coming back to wish you ” happy mother’s day”. hope you had a fabulous time with your family!

Barbara  on May 11th, 2011

This looks super good! The great thing about stews is they taste better the next day and freeze like a dream!

Quay Po Cooks  on May 11th, 2011

Hi Mary, drop by to wish you a belated Mother’s Day. I don’t eat lamb but my Quay Lo does and loves it. Anything stewed always taste better the next day. When we make stew, we always make a big pot and freeze whatever we cannot finish. It comes handy on days when we don’t feel like cooking. This is a great recipe for stew, bookmarked it already, thanks for sharing.

Drick  on May 20th, 2011

Hey Mary, how are you and your family??? we have not heard from you in a while and I pray every thing is all right… just a word maybe? your friends (fans) want to know….

Sook  on May 25th, 2011

The stew looks great, Mary!

claudia lamascolo  on May 29th, 2011

hi Mary hope you are well! I have been out of the loop with so many, your lamb popped right into my mouth when I saw this one… I love it.. never had it like this with ginger nice addition.. we always use oregano, garlic and wine… what a change this is and I cant wait to try it!
