I admit it, I am bored of lamb tagine. Plus I didn’t have the ingredients in to make it. Every Irish Stew I have ever made tastes watery for some reason, and the husband doesn’t like some of the key essentials to make a good Mediterranean stew (peppers, onions, aubergine) so I thought I’d make something up and see how it went.It went OK,which actually means I liked it even if no one else did, for the recipe below I’ve increased the spice quantities in the recipe as the tomato was a little overpowering.
Mediterranean Irish Stew
300g cubed lamb
10 or so baby potatoes, sliced
2 carrots sliced
2 garlic cloves
1 tbsp paprika
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tin chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp tomato puree
Juice of half a lemon
Oil to fry
Salt and Pepper to Season
How to do it
1. Fry off the garlic until golden2. Add lamb and fry until brown (3-4 minutes)
3. Add potatoes and carrots
4. Add spices and toss until everything coated. Leave to sweat for 3 minutes
5. Add 150ml water (or stock if you have it) and tin of tomatoes
6. Season and bring to the boil
7. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 45-60 minutes
8. Squeeze in lemon juice to taste
I have no picture of the final dish because Baby Boy demanded feeding, the husband dished up and to be honest, I just plain forgot!
The husband wasn’t really a fan of this, so it’s not one that I will be popping on the menu again anytime soon. Until I can cook for someone who *likes* peppers and onions and mushrooms and vegetables in general really.
