Well, I know that its summer and I should be doing a summer recipe, but its basil, and I love the stuff but mainly use it in winter, its my go to spice for soups and stews.
Lamb Stew with Basil
- 1 pds of Lamb Stew Meat
- 1 Large Onion
- 3 Large Potato’s
- 3 Large Carrots
- 1 small Turnip or 3 parsnips.
- 1 pint of homemade lamb broth or beef broth in a pinch.
- Salt, pepper and lots and lots of dried basil! and normally some stinging nettle/horseradish dried greens..
Cook your onions and brown your meat, then add your broth and everything else, simmer on low for at least 40 min till everything is done but I tend to let mine simmer longer for a very thick stew, serve with fresh baking powder bisquits which can have added herbs to them if you want, or drop them on the stew itself for dumplings.
