Tasty Lamb Stew

We love the superb quality and taste of Irish meat and that’s why we use only 100% Irish Bord Bia approved Beef, Chicken and Lamb for our meals.

Our Lamb Tagine is a big favourite with our little Pip & Pear fans. Here is a tasty recipe for Lamb Stew for the whole family. (Always ensure not to add salt until you have removed a portion for baby)



  • 350g Irish lamb – diced.
  • 1 tbsp of plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp chopped thyme
  • 1 onion – sliced
  • 1 leek – peeled & sliced
  • 1 carrot – peeled & sliced
  • 1 potato – peeled & cut into chunks
  • 75g turnip – cut into chunks
  • approx 300ml homemade chicken stock (or a reduced salt chicken salt).



  1. Preheat your oven to 180ºC/350ºF/gas mark 4.
  2. Place the lamb in a bowl and toss in the flour until evenly coated. Place half of this lamb into a medium sized casserole dish and add a little amount of thyme.
  3. Scatter over the sliced onions, leeks, carrots, potatoes and turnips and add another pinch of thyme. Place the remaining lamb and thyme on top.
  4. Pour in enough chicken stock to just about cover the contents of the dish and cover with the lid.
  5. Place in the oven for 1 1/2 hours until all ingredients are tender.
  6. For baby: Mash up one portion and place in a bowl.
  7. For family: Serve and season as required.
