GF Hearty Lamb Stew
Baby, it’s cold outside. Yes it is! What better way to warm up than with a hearty bowl of steaming lamb stew – gluten free, of course. This easy to make, savory one-pot meal, is chock full of lean lamb and healthy vegetables. Dave absolutely loves this recipe. Good thing it makes enough for a small army, because left-overs are welcomed. Cozy up to a bowl and enjoy.
Tips to Help You Warm Up
One ingredient that adds a great deal of richness to the recipe is bacon. However, if you prefer not to cook with bacon or pancetta, feel free to skip it all together and use your favorite cooking oil to brown the lamb and vegetables. Additionally, if fresh herbs are not available to you, use dry. Toss in the herbs that you love. Finally, if you don’t have lamb – use stew meat of your choice. I like to remind people that cooking should be enjoyable – don’t stress. We are not sending rockets into orbit. Use the fat, herbs and vegetables that you have to create the perfect meal.

Before You Dive In – Prep:
- Dice bacon, if using
- Trim lamb
- Slice, chop and/or mince vegetables
- Prepare home-made stock, if using
Step 1: Saute diced bacon in a 5 qt Dutch oven on medium heat. Take care not to overcook. Once bacon is cooked through and rendered it’s fat, use a slotted spoon to transfer to a plate. If not using meat to render fat at this step, heat 2 T of oil in the pan.
Step 2: Add lamb pieces to a medium bowl and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle flour over the meat and mix to coat.
Step 3: Working in 2 batches, cook the lamb in the hot dutch oven over medium heat until browned. This should take less than five minutes each side. Transfer cooked lamb to the plate with the bacon.
Step 4: If the pot looks dry – pour in another tablespoon of oil. Add sliced leek to the pot and saute until leek starts to soften – about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and stir for another minute. Whisk in the wine, bring up bits from the bottom of the pot. Add the sliced mushrooms, stir and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes.
Step 5: Preheat oven to 325 F/166 C.
Step 6: Return bacon and lamb to the pot. Add the stock, tomato paste, bay leaves, thyme, rosemary, potatoes & carrots. Stir to combine. Potatoes should be completely submerged in liquid. Bring stew to a boil, cover and transfer to the center of the preheated oven.
Step 7: Bake for 1 hour, 45 minutes. Remove from oven and check vegetables. Potatoes and lamb will be fork tender. Taste for seasonings and adjust. Stir in peas and parsley. Cover and sit for 5 minutes. Spoon into bowls and serve piping hot.
Non-alcoholic Option: If you prefer not to use alcohol in this recipe, no problem! Substitute the red wine for either stock or juice such as apple or cranberry juice. To give the alternative an acidic kick, add 1 1/2 T of apple cider vinegar.
