Can I please get the recipe for the lamb and sweet potato casserole
Sure. (I make the recipe up as a I go along, so quantities won't be exact).
Feeds approximately four (two adults & two children)
- A big tray of lamb leg steaks or forequarter chops
- Shallot onions (about two or three
- A couple of medium sized sweet potatoes, chopped into 2 cm chunks
- 400 gram tinned tomatoes
- Beef Stock
- 2 or 3 cloves of fresh garlic crushed
- 1 - 2 teaspoons of paprika
- Salt and pepper and Gravox to thicken (only if you think you need to)
Cut the lamb into bite sized pieces. Chop onions and crush garlic. Add a good swig of olive oil. Brown the meat and onions. Add the sweet potato and keep stirring for a few minutes (until it becomes a bit caramlised, don't stress if it doesn't).
Add the paprika, tinned tomatoes and a cup or two of beef stock. < This is where my recipe will fall over, I just know
how much stock too add - not too much but I guess enough to cover.
Simmer (and stir every now and again) until the lamb is super tender. The sweet potato will probably become so soft you don't even know it's in there, but that's okay.
If you feel the casserole is too runny, add a couple of heaped tablespoons of Gravox to thicken.
You could add any fresh or dried herbs you like. I often add finely chopped fresh thyme or rosemary - just depends on what's in the fridge.
Serve with mashed potato and steamed beans. I've often thought about serving with polenta, but haven't got around to it.
It's not an exact recipe, I'm a true freestyler when it comes to food.
