Lamb Stew

Lamb Stew recipe - The Cooks Pantry


Michael Weldon


4 people


  • 1 kg Coles Lamb Loin Chops
  • 1 brown onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tbs cumin seeds
  • 1tbs smoked paprika
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 2 cans Ardmona crushed tomatoes
  • 250mls Massel Salt Reduced Liquid Chicken Stock
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1 bunch of parsley, sliced thinly
  • Sea Salt
  • Cobram Estate Classic Extra Virgin Olive Oil


  • Season the lamb chops with a good pinch of salt and a drizzle of olive oil. Place them onto your heated pan and cook on a low-medium heat until lightly brown. Flip and repeat on the other side, about 1-2 mins on each side. Set aside.
  • Using the excess lamb fat in the pan, add your onions with a pinch of salt and soften. Add more olive oil if necessary.  Next, add cumin, paprika, capsicum and bay leaves and combine. Once you can smell the smoked paprika in the air,, you can add the liquids – diced tomatoes and chicken stock.
  • Carefully place the lamb chops back in the pan and braise for about 30 minutes on a low heat until the liquid has thickened up and the meat is nicely pulling apart. Add chickpeas and allow to warm through for 2 minutes.
  • Top with some parsley and serve with some bread, rice or enjoy on its own!
