  • 4 strips of about 4 oz of bacon chopped into strips of 1/4" each
  • 2 lbs of boneless leg of lamb or of lamb shoulder trimmed of any excess of fat and cut into pieces of about 1 1/2"
  • 1/2 Tbsp of sea salt for the lamb plus 1 additional tsp for the stew
  • 1 tsp of black pepper for the lamb plus 1/2 tsp for the stew
  • 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour or of gluten-free flour*
  • 1 large diced yellow onion
  • 4 minced garlic cloves
  • 1 lb of thickly sliced button mushrooms
  • 4 cups of low sodium beef broth or of stock
  • 1 Tbsp of tomato paste
  • 2 to 3 bay leaves
  • 1/2 tsp of dried thyme
  • 1 and 1/2 lbs of small halved yellow potatoes
  • 4 medium peeled and cut into pieces of 1/2" each carrots
  • 1/4 cup of finely chopped parsley for garnishing


  • In a Dutch oven of about 5Qt, sauté the chopped bacon over medium high heat until the bacon gets brown, and the fat is completely released.
  • With the help of a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a large platter
  • While the bacon still cooks, season the lamb pieces with about 1/2 Tbsp of salt and about 1 tsp of pepper. Sprinkle with about 1/4 cup of flour and toss very well to coat. Cook the lamb into 2 batches into hot bacon grease over a medium heat until everything is browned (for about 3 to 4 min per side) then transfer to the plate with the bacon.
  • Add the diced onion and sauté for about 2 minutes. Add in the garlic and cook for about another additional minute, stirring constantly.
  • Add in the sliced mushrooms; then bring to a simmer, then cook uncovered for about 10 min.
  • Preheat your oven to a temperature of about 325˚F.
  • Return the bacon and the lamb to the pot and add in 4 cups of broth, about 1 Tbsp of tomato paste, 1 tsp of salt, 1/2 tsp of pepper, 1/2 tsp of dried thyme and about 2 bay leaves.
  • Stir in the potatoes and the carrots, making sure that the potatoes are mostly submerged into the liquid.
  • Bring your ingredients to a boil; then cover and transfer to your preheated oven at a temperature of about 325˚F for about 1 hr and about 45 min.
  • When you are done, serve and enjoy your lamb stew!
  • You can serve with cooked rice and enjoy your delicious dish
