Minted Lamb Cawl


This traditional Welsh classic is the perfect home comfort food. Best cooked the day before, we’ve added a refreshing mint twist to boost the rich lamb flavour.

  1. Heat half the oil in a large pan and add the onions, carrots, potatoes, leeks and swede and brown off. Once slightly softened remove from pan and set aside.
  2. Add the remaining oil to pan. Once hot, add in the lamb neck and brown the meat for 3-5 mins on a medium-high heat. Add lamb stock and bring to a boil. Then reduce the heat and let simmer for 1 hour.
  3. Add the browned vegetables and mint sauce. Cook on a low simmer for a further hour. Set aside and let cool.
  4. Once cool, place in fridge over night to let flavours develop.
  5. When ready to serve, heat through until piping hot. We recommend serving with thick, crusty bread slices to soak up the delicious broth.
