Lamb Stew With Potatoes, Carrots & Peeled Tomatoes

Whenever you’re feeling like a comforting dish my friend…

It just doesn’t get any better than this!

So the other day I was browsing through the meat section in Coles, one of the most popular supermarkets in Australia. I noticed they had these new lamb bones packs in their meat section that was an absolute bargain!

It’s basically lamb bones with more than enough meat on them and it only costed something like $4 per kg.

The package looked pretty fresh although the meat I must admit had quite a bit of fat on them. However, it didn’t bothered me one bit because I kind of like my lamb to be on the fatty side.

I’m serious…if lamb doesn’t have fat…then what’s the point??

But, it's fat...


(SMH. . . )

Anyway, so I decided to buy a pack and see what kind of dish I could make from it. The moment I got home, I started trimming all the meat off and discarded the bones. It was really worth the price because the amount of meat I was able to cut off would have costed me at least double if I were to buy it separately.

Hmmm…..I’m starting to sound like a stingy person aren’t I?

I’m serious, I’ve noticed this more ever since I started my cooking journey and constantly comparing prices whenever I do my grocery shopping.

I mean….I don’t really like this side of me, because that’s not who I am.

But hey, it’s all part of budgeting right?

Plus…I just don’t like wasting money on things that I shouldn’t, especially if I feel like I’m being taken advantage of. And I’m sure we all know what that feels like from time to time.

You bought something from this grocer only to find out that the shop next door was selling the exact same ingredient at half price. Yup…it sucks!

Okay I’m getting a little off track here.

So back to my cheap lamb, a bargain lamb actually that I literally stole off the shelf (at least it felt that way). I brainstormed and came up with a lamb stew with tomato recipe which would be perfect with the meat that I’ve cut out.

I checked on the fridge to see if I had any fresh tomatoes left…but no, I didn’t!

Just when I wanted to go out and get some, I suddenly remembered that I had a can of peeled tomatoes in my cupboard. I quickly opened my cupboard door and there it was.

Now as you probably know, I’m not the biggest fan when it comes to canned food, but when I saw that this thing had whole tomatoes in it and that they were peeled already. I really wanted to give it a go. Plus the label had BPA Free written on it so that was an extra incentive.

This was the can I bought…

And boy was I glad or what….because this lamb stew recipe turned out absolutely amazing!

Check it out below:

I hope you enjoyed this recipe as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Especially if you could get your hands on some cheap lamb cuts like I did.

Whatever the case, I honestly don’t think you can fail with this….unless of course, you simply don’t like lamb.

In that case, there’s really not much I can do, but thanks for reading anyway!

Until next time…
