Mediterranean Lamb Stew

This stew makes an annual appearance at the annual shearing and branding dinner, which might be another COVID-19 casualty this year. This stew tastes best if made a day ahead, chilled, and then reheated slowly in the oven or slow cooker


1. Preheat oven to 300'F


2. Trim 3 pounds of lamb roast into bite-sized pieces. Leave plenty of meat on the bone for stews or broth later.


3. Brown meat in oil and place in a casserole dish


4. Add oil to pan and cook the following until soft. Add to casserole dish when done:

3 chopped onions

4 minced garlic cloves


5. Add to casserole dish the following:

796ml (3 cups) of canned, diced tomatoes

156ml (2/3 cup) canned tomato paste

1 cup dry red wine

2 tbsp of honey, brown sugar, or maple syrup

1 tsp cumin

2 bay leaves

3" cinnamon stick

Salt & pepper to taste


6. Roast for 1 hour


7. Add the following

1/2 cup currants, raisins, or diced apple

One grated orange rind


8. Roast slowly for another hour
