    Lancashire Hot Pot

    Shop Now


    Northern British from our sheep fancying cousins over them hills in Lancashire!

    Originating in the days of heavy industrialisation in Lancashire mill towns, this is a simple dish to create - minimal preparation and a simple ingredient set.

    Caramelise some onions, slice some lamb neck and kidneys, add some aromatics, top up with stock and crown with potatoes. Lid on. Oven ... two hours. Lid off ... on hour. Done.

    Looks amazing! Will definitely try this. I've actually never cooked lamb before but I love it.

    Thanks Ali - my only tip with lamb is long, slow cooking. It is a flavoursome meat and can take one other strong flavours, such as the anchovy in this dish. This is a British classic.

    My time in the UK introduces me to so many delicious foods - I learned to make a roast properly in the time I've spent there! - many that I can't get in the states, like good lincolnshire sausages. Can't make a proper toad in the hole without them. Will pick up some lamb later this week : ) I'm a lover of herbs so will experiment with using them in the dish and perhaps a little whiskey in the stock. thanks again for the recipe!

    Lamb neck for authenticity ...

    You could also chuck some oysters in! Oysters from Morecambe Bay on the Lancashire coastline were often used in stews to bulk up the content - meat was expensive, oysters, literally thrown away can you believe it!

    It is one of the few dishes where I never fry the onions first. Also, a layer of sliced potato in the bottom of the dish is great - soaks up the liquid and you get soft well flavoured potato at the bottom, crisped potato at the top. Delicious! Sage, salt and pepper (lots) and lamb on the bone - the bones make a great flavour and sticky stock!
