This is a very simple and traditional 'Lancashire hot pot' with layers of sliced potatoes, onions and leg of lamb.
Easy to prepare and the flavours worked so well together. Greatly enjoyed it. - 17 Jul 2012
Made receipe as directed. Lamb was very, very flavorful (but I love lamb). My wife, who's not a lamb fan, enjoyed it but didn't think it was the best lamb she's ever had. Potatoes were very dry on top, and completely mushy under the lamb. Top cover potatoes weren't covered by the broth, and I didn't add any so they dried out. I think they were supposed to be covered. Lamb was better the next day after sitting overnight in the fridge. Recommended changes: Add a tablespoon of sage. Add some carrots. Completely drain the lamb and onions of all the oil. Add more salt on the potatoes. Maybe add mushrooms for those who like them. - 25 Nov 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Simple and delicious. How strange that an English woman should find such a good Lancashire Hot Pot recipe on a US website. Best Lancashire Hot Pot I've ever eaten (including my Mother-in-Law's)! It needs lots of salt on the potatoes. - 18 Feb 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
