A large portion of my intentions in my new lifestyle (living and traveling full-time in an RV) are aimed at simplifying. I tend to over-complicate pretty much everything and it’s exhausting. I’m tired of it, to be honest. I yearn for a simpler life. Less decisions, less stuff, less complications, just… less. One of the easiest places for me to address this is in the kitchen (start where you can!). I have gotten really good at simplifying eating real food these past few years. Now, I want to share that blissful simplicity with you! This Simple Lamb Stew recipe is exactly what it sounds like: simple, lamb, and stew!
This recipe only requires a few ingredients, a little prep, and some time to simmer. In fact, use what you have in terms of vegetables. I like the combination I’ve listed here, but if you don’t have something on the list, keep it simple and substitute with what you do have! I would’ve preferred regular carrots, but all I had were baby carrots. Honestly, I think mushrooms would make a great addition here but I’m currently avoiding them due to my recent food sensitivity test. A few other ideas are eggplant and rutabagas. Get creative!
If you don’t have a slow cooker, I highly recommend purchasing one if your aim is to simplify time in the kitchen. They are the epitome of simple meals and are really affordable. This is the slow cooker I use and it does everything I need. However, if you don’t have a slow cooker, you can easily use a large pot with a lid or dutch oven. Just simmer on low on the stove for pretty much the same effect as the slow cooker.
Simple Lamb Stew
(AIP, Paleo, Whole30, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Gluten-Free, Nut-Free)
Prep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 3-4 hours
- 1 large Yam
- 1 large Yellow Onion
- 2 medium Carrots or 16 baby Carrots
- 1 medium Organic Zucchini
- 2 cloves of Garlic
- 1 lb Lamb Stew Meat
- 1/2 Tbsp Real Salt
- 1/2 tsp ground Black Pepper*
- 1 Tbsp Organic Thyme
- 1 cup Water
*For AIP eliminate the black pepper
- Chop the yam, leaving the skin on, into 1″ cubes and add to slow cooker
- Roughly chop the onion and add to slow cooker
- If using medium carrots, cut into rounds, or just add baby carrots to slow cooker
- Cut the zucchini into rounds and add to slow cooker
- Roughly chop the cloves of garlic and add to slow cooker
- Add the lamb stew meat on top of the vegetables
- Sprinkle the seasonings over the top and then add the water to help the seasonings disperse
- Cover and set the slow cooker to high for 3-4 hours or to low for 6 hours. I like to stir mine part way through to make sure everything cooks more evenly and the stuff on top doesn’t dry out.
- Enjoy this simple and nourishing lamb stew!
