Method

  1. Toss the lamb in the flour with a little salt and plenty of freshly ground black pepper. Heat the oil in a heavy-based pan, add the onion and fry for 5 mins until softened. Add the lamb and stir well until tinged brown.
  2. Stir in the stock, 2 tablespoons of the dill and the bay leaf. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 30 mins.
  3. Add the potatoes and lemon juice and cook for a further 30 mins until the potatoes are tender. Serve in soup plates or individual dishes with a spoonful of crème fraîche and a scattering of lemon zest and dill on each serving. Some crusty bread on the side will be useful for mopping up all the juices.

It's a posh Irish stew. I first used this recipe 7 years ago at university, I found it again and made it for my fiancé this week and he loved it. Really tasty, lamb melts in your mouth. Yum!

Very good. Very similar to a recipe I've been using for decades for Swedish lamb although that doesn't have the potatoes.

I realy liked this dish and my husband did too, although i had to add a little more water now and again before the end of the cooking time. It had a nice flavour and was very tasty mixing it with creme freiche. The lamb wasn't as tender as i would have liked as i would normaly use lamb in a casserole and cook for a very long time.

This is one of my husbands favourite dishes. It's surprisingly easy to make and tastes fantastic. One pot so little washing up!
