Hearty, flavorful lamb stew can be yours in under 2 hours, and all in one pot! With a rich, velvety broth and tender pieces of lamb, you'd be hard pressed to find a cozier cold weather meal.

Pro tip: You might be wondering where the flour is in this recipe is. We've got good news: you don't need it! When the potatoes are added, they release their natural starches, which just so happen to be very good at thickening the stew. The resulting broth is velvety smooth and super flavorful. We suggest serving with plenty of bread, you're gonna want to soak up every last drop.

Lamb Stew


  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil

  • 907g lamb shoulder roast, cubed into 1" pieces

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 2 carrots, peeled and cut into rounds

  • 2 stalks celery, chopped

  1. In a large dutch oven or pot over medium-high heat, heat oil. Add lamb and cook on all sides until seared, 10 minutes, working in batches if necessary. Transfer to a plate.
