These are the Roles Royce of the casserole dish world, its been put though its paces. This was probably the tastiest stew I have ever eaten (I didn't cook it!).
500g tasty diced Lamb from local butchers
Red wine opened last week ready to be used to cooking
Garlic, whole cloves
Onions, 1 or 2
Add the meat, wine, garlic, chopped onions, Worcester sauce and fresh ground pepper, bit of paprika to a dish - leave it in the fridge for several hours.
Pick out the meat, dry off excess marinade, roll in flour
Melt some butter and a bit of oil in the casserole dish on the hob
Add the meat and cook it off until browned nicely - this will smell amazing
Add the chopped onions from the marinade dish, fry them for a bit
Add the copped carrots, also fry the for a bit
Add the rest of the marinade, lamb stock to cover everything
Put the lid on the dish and bung it in the oven 190 oC for about 1:30hrs
Was tasty, had it with small Italian style roast potatoes and boiled spinach.
