Ingredients
  • Olive oil
  • 3 lb. lamb shoulder, cut into 2-in. pieces
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 tbsp. garlic, minced
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 4 oz. unsalted butter
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 3 cups veal stock
  • 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 2 cups wild mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 lb. sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-in. pieces
  • 1/2 lb. Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-in. pieces
  • 2 tbsp. fresh thyme
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, toasted

  • Methods/steps
    In a large, heavy bottomed pot, heat oil. Add the lamb and sauté until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove lamb to a plate. Add the onion and sauté until soft. Add the garlic and sauté for 2 more minutes and season with salt and pepper. Add the butter and melt. Add the flour to make a roux. Lower the heat and cook the roux until it is brown, about 15 minutes. Whisk in the wine and stock and raise the heat to medium high. Add in the reserved lamb. Add the mustard. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat to low. Cook over low heat for about 30 minutes, or until liquid is lightly reduced and thick; in a separate sauté pan, sauté the mushrooms until wilted. Add the mushrooms to the stew. Add the potatoes and simmer another 30 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Add the thyme and season with salt and pepper. Garnish with toasted pumpkin seeds.
