Woman's Weekly recipe Rich, warming and full of flavour, this traditional Lancashire hot pot is perfect for those cold winter nights. Serve with seasonal veg and a slice of chunky bread to mop up that delicious gravy

Ingredients

  • 2tbsp sunflower oil
  • 6-8 best end of neck lamb chops
  • Few sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • 1-2 bay leaves
  • 2 onions, peeled and sliced
  • 1tbsp plain flour
  • 1 lamb stock cube
  • 1tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2-3 medium potatoes, scrubbed and sliced
  • 15g (oz) butter, melted

Diced lamb can be used as an alternative to the lamb chops if you prefer a boneless hot pot.

Method

  1. Set the oven to 160C/320F/Gas Mark 3.
  2. Heat half the oil in a frying pan and add half the chops, or as many as will fit in the pan in a single layer. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until browned.
  3. Remove from the pan and place them in a casserole dish. Brown the remaining chops and add them to the casserole. Place the sprigs of rosemary and bay leaves on top.
  4. Add the remaining oil to the pan and heat it, followed by the onion. Cook over a medium heat for about 5-7 minutes, or until softened. Sprinkle the flour over the onion and gradually add 450ml ( pint) water, stirring well, to give a smooth gravy. Crumble in the stock cube and add the Worcestershire sauce. Season to taste. Pour the onion gravy over the meat. Arrange the potato slices on top, overlapping them.
  5. Brush the top with the melted butter and season. Cover the dish tightly with a lid or foil and put it on a baking tray. Place the dish in the centre of the oven to cook for about 1 hours. Remove the lid or foil, and cook for a further 30-45 minutes, or until the potato is a light-golden colour. Remove from the oven and serve with green vegetables, if you like.
