Greek lamb & olive casserole


  • Preheat oven to 160°C fan forced (180°C normal).
  • Heat a thin layer of oil in a large heavy-bottomed pot and brown the lamb on all sides. Remove and set aside.
  • Add more oil to the pot, if needed, and gently saute the onion and garlic until tender.
  • Then add the carrots with a little stock, the bay leaves, potatoes, dried oregano, seasonings and olives. Evenly spread out and place the lamb on top, in one layer, with any juices and the beef stock to almost cover.
  • Cover with the lid and cook in the oven for at least 1 hour until tender.
  • Serve with fresh oregano sprinkled on top.
