Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 500g lamb leg steaks, cubed
  • 2 tbsp plain seasoned flour
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 2 small carrots, sliced
  • 300ml hot chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • A few sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 600g waxy potatoes
  • Butter

Method

  3. Thinly slice potatoes and place half in an overlapping layer in a shallow ovenproof pan. Top with the meat mixture, then layer over the remaining potato and dot with butter. Cover and cook in the oven for 30 minutes, then remove the lid and cook for a further 20 minutes, until the potatoes are golden brown.
