This January I have been having a blast converting some of my favorite recipes to be Whole30 compliant and this Whole30 Lancashire Lamb Hotpot is one of my new favorites!
For those you have never had a Lancashire Hotpot it’s an English dish that basically consists of lamb and veggies slow cooked in a rich gravy and topped with thinly sliced potatoes. Kind of like a mix between a stew and a casserole, it is rich, wholesome and just so delicious. A perfect Whole30 Sunday dinner!
- Lamb Stew Meat: I absolutely love the taste of lamb and it works beautifully in this recipe. If you can’t find the precut lamb stew meat you always buy boneless lamb shoulder and then cut it into 1-2 inch chunks yourself.
- Onions & Carrots
- Yukon Gold Potatoes: You can use russet instead but I prefer Yukon Gold.
- Whole30 “Worcestershire Sauce”: I have found that a combination of coconut aminos, fish sauce and balsamic vinegar can be used to sub Worcestershire sauce (which usually contains added sugar) in all of your favorite recipes. If you do have a Paleo compliant Worcestershire sauce on hand simply replace those 3 ingredients with about 1 tbsp of the compliant sauce.
- Beef Broth: If you are doing a Whole30 make sure you check the label to avoid any added sugars.
- Fresh Thyme: You can substitute with dried thyme at half the amount.
- Frozen Peas (optional): Peas are a little controversial in the Paleo/Whole30 community because technically they are a legume. In 2020 the Whole30 leadership declared them compliant with the program and I quite like the little pop of sweetness. However, if you have certain sensitivities to legumes or are following a more strict Paleo diet then feel free to omit.
- Ghee: Can substitute with butter if you are doing a less strict Whole30/Paleo diet.
- Arrowroot Powder: Arrowroot powder is used in place of flour to help thicken the gravy. You can also use tapioca powder in a pinch.
I highly recommend making this dish in a casserole pan or cast iron skillet, but any oven proof, deep skillet will do. If you don’t have an oven safe skillet than you can prepare the meat and veggies in a regular skillet and transfer to an oven safe dish before adding the potatoes.
