My husband came up to me one day after watching the infamous “Games of thrones” show… And said he felt inspired by the show and wants a “Viking” stew- I looked at him so puzzled as to what he meant by this.
He later explained a stew which had chunky cut up veggies and is eaten with a large loaf of bread which is easily pulled apart & dunk into the stew.
While him explaining this to me I felt inspired myself, so I came up with the following recipe and I must say it was absolutely DELICIOUS especially in this cold weather.
-300grams lean diced lamb
-2 onions chopped in chunks
-4 carrots chopped in chunks(TIP: don’t peel the carrot all its nutrients and held in its actual skin. Rather use a vegetable scrubber brush to wash and scrub well)
-2 Desiree potatoes chopped in chunks
-3 chat potatoes chopped into chunks
-celery stalks chopped
-leek finely sliced
-2 garlic cloves crushed
-fresh parsley leaves chopped
-2Tbsp tomato paste
-2 Tbsp Worcestishire sauce
-4 bay leaves
– 1litre stock of your choice ( I used vegetable)
-Salt & pepper
Mix through the tomato paste.
Season with a little salt and pepper- don’t over power with salt as once the stew is reduced it tends to produce its own salts & flavour.
Allow to simmer on low for 2-3hours.
Serve up with a delicious soft loaf.
