DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Put onion, potato, and lamb into a 5-qt casserole dish or a deep baking dish. Season with salt and pepper. Add parsley, cumin, and olive oil and mix well with your hands or a wooden spoon. Put tomato slices on top in a single layer and season lightly with salt.
  • Dot butter over the top and pour about 1/2 cup of water around the sides of the dish.
  • Cover with foil and bake for 2 hours, tilting the dish from side to side a couple of times and spooning the pan juices over the top. The lamb should be tender and the potatoes soft.
  • Remove the foil, increase oven temperature to 400 F, and cook for another 45 minutes or so, turning lamb halfway thorugh, or until the meat and potatoes are a little browned and the liquid has reduced.
  • Serve hot or at room temperature.
