1tbsp of olive oil

4 lamb steaks roughly diced

2 onions sliced

4 parsnips roughly chopped

3 carrots roughly chopped

350ml of red wine

1 x 440g tin of chopped tomatoes

1 tsp thyme

1 tsp rosemary

250 ml vegetable stock

creamy mash potato, new potatoes or rice

Begin by heating a large pan with the oil and add the lamb to the pan and brown gently all over season with salt and pepper.

Once done remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and put to one side, in the same pan add the onions and fry gently till they are tender and golden, for around 15 mins.

Now you need to add it all to a large casserole dish place all your vegetables, stock, wine herbs and tomatoes to the dish stir altogether then place your diced lamb in last then cover with the lid and cook in a pre heated oven at 160’c for around 2 – 2 1/2 hours.
