Folks, I’m pretty sure you’ll agree with me that there’s sometimes nothing more comforting than a tasty flavoursome stew, and this one pot chorizo and lamb stew is no exception.

I’m a huge fan of stews and casseroles. I remember them always being the food of colder days, always something we would have after coming home from school, served with mash and vegetables.

Whilst in my childhood those stews would have been much more of a Scottish traditional nature. This recipe I’m bringing to you today I’ve chosen for it’s Mediterranean theme and flavours.

The recipe contains lots of my favourite ingredients cooked together like lamb, chorizo, tomatoes and sweet paprika to name but a few and I also love the fact it’s simple to make which I’m sure you will too!

The inspiration for this one pot chorizo and lamb stew recipe came from a traditional Italian lamb hot pot meal I had when Lady Lynne and I ate out recently for dinner at our favourite local restuarant, Battlefield Rest.

Here I’ve successfully recreated that dish which I hope you can enjoy at home as well. It was just too delicious not to share!

That particular hotpot I had was served with ratatouille and spinach mash as a side. That’s certainly something you could consider instead of rice or crusty bread as the accompaniment I’ve suggested.

Whatever you decide to pair this recipe with, over the course of the ingredients cooking together there’s is an amazing fusion of flavours and an amazing smell permeating throughout your whole house!

Those of you who follow this blog regularly will know that red meat is normally something Lady Lynne and I consider as a treat, which we might have when we go out for dinner to a restaurant together.

Normally, we try to aim to eat more vegetables, white meats and fish during the week if possible. So when it comes to making a red meat recipe at home it has to be good. Of the very best quality. Like this stew.

A lamb stew like this would be something we enjoy at the weekend, perhaps when pennies are tight but we still want to feel we’ve eaten out. This one pot chorizo and lamb stew is perfect for recreating that feeling of thinking you’ve been just eaten an amazing sumptuous meal in a restaurant!

This filling family casserole would also make for a delicious Sunday dinner maybe as a change from your traditional Sunday roast?

Well folks, I hope you enjoy this tasty dish. Maybe you’ll be enjoying it when we’re off hiking The West Highland Way next week?

I can say without doubt that I’ll be looking for a bowl of comfort from a recipe like this next week. It’ll be well deserved with us completing an average of 16 miles hiking (about 1500 calories burned) per day. Naturally it will have to be washed down with a glass of wine or two too! 😉

One Pot Chorizo and Lamb Stew Recipe

You could make this lamb stew the day before you want to eat it and chill it in the fridge until you’re ready to feast on it. That way the flavours will have even more time to marinate and infuse together.

I’d love to hear what you think of my recipe in the comments below and please do rate my recipe if you like it! 🙂

  2. Add the chopped onions and red pepper and sauté them until soft for about 8 – 10 minutes. Add small amounts of hot water if the mixture begins to stick.
  3. Then add the chorizo to the vegetables to sauté together for 3 - 4 minutes until the chorizo releases some its oils and flavours and colours the onions.

  4. Add the lamb and paprika, continue stirring around the casserole pot for about 6 - 7 minutes until the lamb is lightly browned.

  5. Add the tinned tomatoes and lamb stock
  6. Turn the casserole down to a simmer and cook for a further 1.5 hours on the hob until the lamb is tender.
  7. About 10 minutes before the end of cooking add the cherry tomatoes and once they are softened season the dish to taste.
  8. Serve with rice or crusty bread.

Recipe Notes

*You can use a tbsp of olive oil if you don’t have cooking spray.

  1. I totally agree with you about stews and soups, Neil! The flavors all meld together (esp by Day 2) to create a delicious meal…and it’s one that can be reheated in just minutes. I love the Mediterranean flavors you’ve incorporated here. It sounds like a stew that I can get behind for sure! It’s a chilly, rainy Spring day here, and I’m hoping that you, Lynne and Lynne’s friend have better weather for your hike next week. Hang in there, and take lots of pictures! And maybe have a batch of this stew waiting in the fridge back home?? 🙂

      Glad you like this Mediterranean themed stew David. And also thanks for your wishes for next week. Yes, we’re hoping for better weather (although I doubt it will be Mediterranean 😉 ) and I intend to take lots of pictures. As long as we can see something! 😀

  2. Neil, lamb stew all on its own is pretty darn delicious – adding chorizo in definitely raises the ante of this stew to a whole other level! So much flavor in this stew! And, I’m so intrigued by the sides of ratatouille and spinach mash that this was originally served with.
    Hoping you and Lady Lynne have a wonderful time exploring the West Highland Way – am off to Google spinach mass and see if it’s any similar to mushy peas…. safe travels, my friend!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      You would absolutely love this stew Shashi! It’s true that the chorizo gives a unique twist on what would normally be an amazing lamb stew anyway. It’s hard to describe in words, it’s just amazing.

      Hope you managed to find spinach mash. We are so looking forward to our hike next week. I’ve already been looking at the menu’s of the places we’re staying at. 😆

  3. This looks delicious. Do you think cabbage might make a good addition? I don’t really eat a lot of lamb, but this gives me a really good excuse to go out and get some.

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      I know that cabbage would be a great addition to this stew Jeff. Mum used to grow cabbage (still does) and adds it as an accompaniment to her stews, so yeah. Hope you enjoy!

  4. The stew looks so delicious and comforting! It is still chilly in my part of the world and I am desperate to eat something hearty. This recipe totally fits the bill. Time to beat the winter blues!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Delicious and comforting. That’s just exactly what I was trying to make this stew to be. Thanks Neha.

  5. I love stew recipes, they make such a warm comforting meal. Now that we are heading into winter, this will make the perfect dinner. This stew looks just so delicious. Thank you for sharing. I cannot wait to try

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      I hope that this stew helps to see you through winter there Ashika.

      Hopefully it won’t be a long one for you either but if it is you’ll be able to make this lots of times to try and beat those winter blues. 🙂

  6. Ben|Havocinthekitchen says:

    Agreed! Stew/casserole is one of the best types of comfort food, and you’ve created (recreated) a very delicious one, Neil! Love how it looks and sounds. Ratatouille and spinach mash also sound like the perfect way to accompany this stew.

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Thanks Ben. I kind of wish I’d done the Ratatouille and spinach mash as part of this recipe to show you how great they really do accompany each other. But I think you get the point anyway. 🙂

  7. I just love this. It’s definitely meaty, but doesn’t seem heavy with that broth!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Exactly right Mimi. The broth is quite light but it’s extremely flavoursome filled with all that chorizo yumminess. 🙂
