Lamb Stew with a North African twist and Vegetables Baked in a Clay Pot


  • 500 gr lamb meat
  • 2 green peppers
  • 200 gr mushrooms
  • 1 red onion
  • 5 shallots
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 200 gr butter
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp rosemary
  • 1 ½ tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp coriander
  • 1 tbs sugar
  • 1 tbs lemon juice
  • 3 dl white wine
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tsp thyme
  • 8 figs
  • 1 tbs honey
  • 1 ½ tbs cinnamon
  • 2 dl water
  • 1 cube chicken broth

Wait with adding for making the gravy

  • 2 tbs cornstarch
  • 3 dl cream


Cut the lamb meat into pieces. Fry the meat in 100 g butter and add salt and pepper and set aside. Cut the paprika, mushrooms and onions into pieces. Fry the onions and garlic in 100 gr butter and set aside. Mix the onions, figs, paprika, mushrooms and lamb meat in an ovenproof dish with a lid.

Add the spices and remaining ingredients, all except the cornstarch and the cream. Put the lid on. Place in the preheated oven and cook for 1 ½ hours. Oven temperature 150 Celsius degrees.

Take the dish out of the oven and strain the broth in a separate pot. Cool off and place in refrigerator.

When the broth is cold take off the fat that is on the top. Heat the broth and mix in the cornstarch until it thickens a bit for a nice sauce. Use more starch if you feel the sauce is too thin for your liking. Taste off to your own taste with adding more salt or pepper or spices and add the cream.

Pour the sauce over the lamb stew and let it cook a few minutes before serving. Serve with potato and vegetables baked in a claypot.
