ingredients

  • 2 lbs boned lamb (Lamb is traditional) or 2 lbs boned beef, sliced, 1/4 inch slices (Lamb is traditional)
  • 2 lbs peeled potatoes, thinly sliced (a mandolin slicer works best)
  • 3 large onions, thinly sliced
  • salt and pepper, each layer to taste
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 13 ounces water

directions

  • Trim the meat, leaving a little of the fat and slice.
  • Season the meat and veggies with salt, pepper, 2 teaspoons of parsley and the thyme.
  • Layer the potatoes, meat and onions in a large casserole, starting and finishing with a layer of potatoes.
  • Add the water and cover tightly.
  • Cook in a preheated oven at 275 degrees for 2 1/2 hours, shake occasionally to prevent sticking, and check liquid now and then.
  • Do not add unless absolutly necessary.
  • The potatoes will thicken the finished stew so it should not be too runny.
  • Just before serving, remove lid and brown the top under a hot broiler and sprinkle with remaining parsley.
  • The potatoes on top should be nice and brown and crisp.

    Delicious! What an amazing stew! So simple, so easy. My hubby and son had two helping each tonight. I made it mostly as written, substituting home-made turkey stock for the water and I used boneless leg of lamb as the meat. I started too late in the day yesterday to have it for dinner last night, so I baked without doing the final broiling step. I put it, pot and all, into the refrigerator. Tonight, I baked it for another hour at 275 degrees, then broiled it on high for about 10-15 minutes.

    This was very good, I did add Beef bouillon granules to the water and it was wonderful!! Also used Kosher salt for the potatoes. Thanks for posting, Karen
