Recipe for Lamb Stew

We love lamb. We particularly love lamb chops but this herb bouquet lamb stew is a great way to serve lamb.
The turnip is optional. I don’t like turnip and would substitute parsnips for it but my husband does like parsnips. So in our household we just leave it out.

Ingredients for Lamb Stew

  • 2 lbs Spring lamb shoulder
    4 Cups Water
    3 Carrots cut into 11/2-inch chunks
    1 Small turnip diced
    1 Onion quartered
    11/2 Tsp Salt
    ¼ Tsp Pepper
    Pinch of thyme
    Pinch of rosemary
    1 Bay leaf
    3 Tbsp Parsley chopped
    2 Tbsp Flour

Method for Lamb Stew

Trim fat if necessary. Cut lamb into 11/2-inch cubes. Place the meat in deep saucepan or Dutch oven. Add water. Cover and simmer for 2 hours. Add remaining ingredients except flour and parsley. Cover and cook until vegetables are fork tender. Remove bay leaf. Skim fat if required. Thicken broth with flour mixed with ¼ cup cold water. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve piping hot.


Optionally you can add green peas and/or green beans. When I do this I like to cook them separately and add them as I am serving the stew.
