How To Make Mediterranean Lamb Stew

  • Step 1. Heat the olive oil in a casserole dish and brown the lamb in batches. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • Step 2. Deglaze the pan with a splash of the stock. Add the frozen diced onion and pepper and sauté for about 6 minutes until softened.
  • Step 3. Add the garlic and fry or 30 seconds until fragrant. Then mix in the Greek seasoning, cinnamon, bay leaf, salt, and pepper, stirring for a further 30 seconds.
  • Step 4. Return the lamb to the pan and stir in the tomato paste, diced tomatoes, and chicken stock. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to a simmer.
  • Step 5. Cook for about 1 – 1 1/2 hours, until the lamb is tender (adding more chicken stock if the stew starts to dry out).
  • Step 6. About 5 minutes before it is done, add in the olives and adjust the seasonings as needed.

Recipe Tips

  • To make the prep work even easier, you can buy pre-cubed lamb stew meat, or ask your butcher to cut into cubes for you.
  • You can use vegetable stock or beef stock instead of chicken stock.
  • Feel free to add in different low-carb veggies like cauliflower, eggplant or fennel.
  • Garnish your stew with slivered almonds and some crumbled feta cheese. So good!
