How to Make Yankee Lamb Stew


  • 1Preheat oven to 325.
  • 2Pat the meat dry and sprinkle with salt and pepper as desired.
  • 3Heat the oil in a large covered casserole or dutch oven over high heat on top of the stove.
  • 4Add the meat, without crowding, in batches if necessary, and brown well on all sides.
  • 5Remove pieces to a plate as they are done and reserve.
  • 6Repeat until all meat is browned.
  • 7Pour off any remaining fat, and replace the casserole over medium heat.
  • 8Add the onion, half the carrots, celery, garlic and tomato paste.
  • 9Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 10Use your spoon to loosen and dissolve the brown bits stuck to the bottom of the casserole.
  • 11Add flour and cook, stirring, an additional minute.
  • 12Add the wine and cook for about a minute to burn off the alcohol.
  • 13Replace the meat (and any juices on the plate) in the casserole and add the stock, peppercorns and thyme.
  • 14Cover, bring to a boil and place in the oven for 1 1/4-to-1 1/2 hours, or until meat is tender.
