Navarin of Lamb
This is an excellent way of serving middle neck of lamb. I like it best made in the summer with new potatoes, but it can be made in the winter using chunks of old potatoes instead.
|900g middle neck of lamb, cut into pieces|
|2 tablespoon plain flour|
|725ml hot water|
|1 tablespoon tomato purée|
|1 clove garlic, crushed|
|½ teaspoon dried thyme (or a sprig of fresh)|
|8 small onions, peeled and left whole|
|6 baby turnips, peeled and quartered|
|6 small carrots, scraped and cut into 2.5cm lengths|
|12 very small new potatoes, scraped|
|1 teaspoon brown sugar|

This recipe first appeared in Delia's Frugal Food.
Begin by heating some dripping into a large flameproof casserole.
Trim any excess fat from the meat, then season the pieces and fry them in the hot fat until brown on all sides.
Now sprinkle in the flour and, keeping the heat fairly low, stir it around to soak up the juices.
Next add the hot water, tomato purée, crushed garlic and thyme.
Then bring everything gently to simmering point, giving it a stir now and then. Put the lid on and cook very gently for 45 minutes.
While that’s happening, using a little more dripping, fry the prepared onions, turnips and carrots.
When the 45 minutes are up, add these vegetables to the casserole, along with the scraped potatoes, and bring to simmering point again.
Add the sugar, cover and continue to simmer gently for a further 45 minutes.
