Simple Lamb and Potato Stew

by zesty on May 13, 2009 · 8 comments

Middle of the week already!  I cannot believe it.  I am somewhat overwhelmed the last couple of days with the to do list… ever get like that?  It seems like this always happens when you take a week off but when you come back to reality you are swamped.  It is all good though – you have to think positive and move forward.


At the end of the post I added more Jamaica photos since I took tons of them to share.  However, before we get there I want to share with you a stew or casserole recipe that is dead easy to make and tastes great.

Try this and let me know what you think of the flavor and simplicity.


  • 1 lb. of Lamb ( cut into pieces )
  • 3 lbs. of Potatoes ( peeled and sliced )
  • 1 Medium Onion ( sliced or whole depending on if you like it )
  • 4 Cups of tomato juice
  • 1 Cup Water
  • Salt and Pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Using a saute pan brown the lamb on medium high heat for about 4 minutes ( reserve fat juices).
  3. In a large roasting pan, add potatoes, tomato juice, onion, salt and pepper, browned lamb, reserved fat juices and water.
  4. Cover and cook for 90 minutes until potatoes are tender.
  5. ENJOY!

Zesty Tip: Choose the right potato for the job.  If you are baking potatoes choose a potato that can stand up to the heat.  If you are boiling potatoes and wanting to mash them you can choose a less starchy potato.

A little more from Jamaica

I hope you have a great hump day and I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

Take care

those are GORGEOUS photos – in the last photo, it looks like the water is dotted with diamonds.

and zesty, your lamb stew looks so delicious. my mom adds carrots to add a hint of sweetness to potatoes + lamb.

I love/hate getting back from vacay! It’s nice to be in your own bed and shower, but I go through withdrawals of fun and relaxation :D I love lamb, we usually have it at easter. Love the Jamaica pics!
