Yet Another Lamb Potjie Recipe

There are so many lamb potjie recipes. Seriously. But this one is nice. And easy. And has some interesting stuff in it (lemon, soya, mushroom soup). Can’t remember where I found it. Reckon the secret is in the mushroom soup/gravy powder.

Yet Another Lamb Potjie Recipe

  • 1 kg leg of lamb, cut into 3 cm cubes
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 medium onions, sliced
  • 10 baby potatoes
  • 10 whole baby carrots, peeled
  • 8 whole baby marrows
  • 250 ml meat stock
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp celery salt
  • 2 tbls worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp soya sauce
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp dried thyme (and/or rosemary)
  • 1 tbls brown gravy powder
  • 1 tbls mushroom soup powder
  • Garlic

1  Heat the butter in the pot with some garlic. Fry that shit up!

2  Stir fry the onions until tender

3  Move the onions to one side and place the meat next to the onions. Using a large spoon place the onions on top of the meat. Cover and simmer for about 30 minutes until the meat renders its own juice

4  Place the potatoes on top of the meat without letting them touch the side of the pot

5  Layer carrots and then the courgettes around and on top of the potatoes

6  Mix 125 ml of the stock with the salt, celery salt, worcestershire sauce, soya sauce, lemon juice and thyme (or rosemary) and add to the potjie

7  Cover and simmer for about 90 minutes

8  Use the remaining 125 ml of meat stock, mixed with the gravy and soup powder to thicken the liquid in the pot

9  Another hour on consistent heat, at least!

Serves 4-6 people
