- STEP 1
Dust the lamb in flour. Fry in oil in a large pan on a medium heat until browned on all sides. Do this in 4 or 5 batches, placing each browned batch onto a plate.
- STEP 2
Place all the browned lamb in large pan, along with any juices. Cut 500g of potato into small cubes and place on top of the meat - this will dissolve and thicken the sauce by the end. Quarter the onion and add. Tie the bay leaf, rosemary and thyme together with string and add.
- STEP 3
Add the chartenay carrots and tomatoes. Pour in the beer, water and stock cubes. Season generously.
- STEP 4
Put on a low hob for 2 hours, stirring every 30 mins. After 2 hours add the rest of the potatoes, which you have cut to the size of large roasties. Add the baby carrots and place back on the lowest heat for a further 1.5 hours. At the end, remove the stringed herbs and discard.
- STEP 5
Serve in small bowls with a sprinkling of chopped parsley and a knob of butter. Serve with crusty white bread and pickled red cabbage or pickled onions. The dish is enjoyed more if eaten while speaking in the scouse accent. Enjoy!
