  • Low calorie cooking oil / spray
  • 2 large onions roughly chopped
  • 1 red pepper roughly chopped
  • 120 g chorizo sliced
  • 600 g lean lamb leg steaks cubed and with as much fat trimmed off as possible
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 2 tins chopped tomatoes
  • 250 ml lamb stock
  • 80 g cherry tomatoes
  • Salt and pepper to season


  • Spray the bottom of a large casserole pot about 8 times with the cooking oil spray. Heat the casserole pot on a hob, on high heat, until the cooking spray begins to bubble then turn the heat down to a medium heat. *
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Add the lamb and paprika, continue stirring around the casserole pot for about 6 - 7 minutes until the lamb is lightly browned.
  • Add the tinned tomatoes and lamb stock
  • Turn the casserole down to a simmer and cook for a further 1.5 hours on the hob until the lamb is tender.
  • About 10 minutes before the end of cooking add the cherry tomatoes and once they are softened season the dish to taste.
  • Serve with rice or crusty bread.


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