This is a lovely lamb stew that is tasty, heart warming and economical. Its also got a nive assortment of vegetables, herbs and spices.
You say this recipe is ready in 8 hrs 40 minutes but in the preparation method, it says only cook for 3 to 4 hours. You mention 'extra time' of 4 hours and 20 minutes. Not clear on whether this time is spent on a low heat maybe? Could you clarify please, as I would love to try this recipe? Wenya - 11 Jul 2010
This reminds me of what my mum used to make. Great recipe. - 24 Jun 2015
Thank you jooles. If you are cooking the hotpot in an oven turn the oven temperature down to Gas 2/170C/325F. Keep the lid on for the first 2 hours and removed the lid for the last half an hour to brown the potato topping. Sprinkle some grated cheese and melt it on top to for extra flavour. - 24 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
