The shoulder is an undervalued cut of lamb, with a delicious flavor, and it’s cheaper than the classic ribs or leg. You can use it in lots of delicious meals, like this stew for example. Add plenty of veggies, like potato, carrot, onion, peas, and if you want, you can even play a little with the flavors, by adding some anchovies, which will bring their intense, salty taste to the table!

How to Cook Lamb Stew With Potatoes and Anchovies

  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the anchovies and stir in the pan for about 1 minute.
  2. Add the lamb shoulder and cook it until the meat turns opaque, and it slightly starts to brown. Season the lamb with salt, pepper, and add the carrot and onion. Give it a good stir, and add the parsley, garlic, and sliced chili.
  3. Add a few fresh thyme sprigs, pour the white wine, the water, and top with a lid. Keep it on the pan until the sauce reduces by half. Remove the lid, add the diced potatoes, and season with salt.
  4. Pour the vegetable stock and put the lid once again, this time simmering for 30 minutes, to ensure the potatoes are cooked through.
  5. Add the green peas, stir, and leave the pan on heat for 5 more minutes before turning off the heat.
