With the cooler weather creeping up, it’s time to get those hidden stew pots out and firing up that cooker!

I love a good stew, especially if its aromatic, saucy, tasty and thick.  This is my recipe, made with love and patience.


  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil/butter
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 – 1,2 kg lamb chops cut into bite size chunks
  • 1 heaped tablespoon gluten-free flour/wheat flour
  • 3 medium onions peeled and chopped up
  • 1 cube/tub chicken stock pot mixed in to 2 cups of white wine
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1 rosemary sprig
  • 6 – 8 baby potatoes cut in half
  • 3 large carrots, peeled and chopped into bite size chunks
  • 8 ripe tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 heaped teaspoon of crushed garlic
  • 3 tablespoons tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chutney
  • 1 teaspoon dried chilli
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • salt to taste
  • 2 teaspoons dried Italian herbs


  1. Heat the butter and oil together and brown the lamb chunks.
  2. Dust the lamb with the flour and give it a good stir.
  3. Now add the onions and fry it with the lamb for about 5 – 10 minutes. 
  4. Pour in the stock pot/cube of stock with the 2 cups of white wine and water.
  5. Add the rosemary sprig and leave it uncovered, allowing it to boil for about an hour, before you add the rest of the ingredients.
  6. While the lamb is still cooking, prepare the rest of the ingredients in one bowl and add it all to the pot after its been boiling for the hour.
  7. Cover and allow to cook for another hour.
  8. Add salt to taste and allow to cook for about another 20 – 30 minutes to bring all the flavours together. 
  9. Serve with rice.
Heat the butter and oil
Add the flour to the sautéd lamb
Add in the chopped onion and fry for 5 – 10 minutes

Add the stock, white wine and water. Cook for an hour
Prepare the rest of the ingredients in a separate bowl
Allow all the ingredients to boil until the meat falls off the bone
Stew is all ready
Serve the lamb stew with rice

Doesn’t that just look like the ultimate comfort food?
