Aromatic lamb & sweet potato casserole


  • Heat a thin layer of oil in a heavy-bottomed casserole (or pot) and seal the lamb all over. Remove. 
  • Add a little fresh oil to the casserole, if needed, and gently saute the ginger, onion and garlic until tender, scraping the brown bits from the bottom of the pot as you do so. 
  • Return the lamb with the 5 spice powder, soy, hoisin, seasonings, tomatoes and 1 cup stock. Stir, cover and gently cook for about 30 mins. 
  • Then add the sweet potato, mix well and cook for about another 45-60 mins until the lamb is tender, adding more stock if needed.
  • Serve the stew on a bed of steamed rice.
