When the weather is getting colder, it is time for a how little treat dish. Slowly cooked lamb stew is the perfect dish to warm body and soul.
What do you do on a day like this? Well, in my house the boys decided to go for an 8km run around a cold, stark lake. Madness in my mind. I, on the other hand head for the kitchen. I decided to make this simple, homely lamb casserole from one of my favourite South African recipe books by Lynn Bedford Hall.
The boys came back from their run to the smell of this lamb stew cooking away in the oven and I had to threaten them with everything under the sun just to keep them from sneaking a piece of lamb before dinner time.
My favourite way to eat this stew is with a dollop of mashed potato to soak up all the lovely gravy but we are trying to watch the calories so plain boiled potatoes it had to be.
