Some people swear by combining lamb and beef in the one pot!

I've never tried it but I will tomorrow. The idea is that you use neck or lap of lamb to start it off, then brown the beef and add it in.

Sounds odd but I'm gonna give it a go.

I like using Pearl Onions in a stew.
They are a pain to peel, so I just get a bag of the pre-peeled, frozen ones. Defrost before adding to pot. It's one of the few 'cheats' I use when cooking.

I've used lamb stock that I've made for beef stew and it is amazing.

Good to hear! Tonight I browned a kilo of lap of lamb and sweated some onions and garlic with it. Then I added 2 pints of water, salt, pepper and and bay leaf and simmered in a large stock pot with the lid on.

I added another pint of water and simmered again.

Now I will leave it overnight to cool, skim off the fat, and add half a kilo of lean diced beef tomorrow. Will probably chuck in some carrots, a tomato and some paprika too.

Should be a fine winter meal by the end of it.

Or horrible. I don't know which. Will find out tomorrow night.

Brown the beef before you add it to the pot.

True. I will flour the beef first and fry it up separately, then chuck it in.

Having the second round of yesterday's Guiness favoured stew. It's growing on me.

I fucked it up

After labouring over my lamb and beef stew for hours, I made mash to go with it and completely overcooked the spuds. The stew itself was nice but I'll have to go back to Potato School.

When your boiling spuds, place a small piece of butter into the water, it stops the water boiling over the side of the pot.

I usually put a few small spuds in at the start and let them boil away. 30 minutes before lift-up I add the real spuds.
