Made receipe as directed. Lamb was very, very flavorful (but I love lamb). My wife, who's not a lamb fan, enjoyed it but didn't think it was the best lamb she's ever had. Potatoes were very dry on top, and completely mushy under the lamb. Top cover potatoes weren't covered by the broth, and I didn't add any so they dried out. I think they were supposed to be covered. Lamb was better the next day after sitting overnight in the fridge. Recommended changes: Add a tablespoon of sage. Add some carrots. Completely drain the lamb and onions of all the oil. Add more salt on the potatoes. Maybe add mushrooms for those who like them.
3.5 stars. I feel like it needed an additional something...maybe a bit of wine, spice, je ne se quoi? I added peas and a bit of sage which gave it a nice flavor. I also browned ground lamb with the onions, added spices, and then layered. It was nice. Definitely a comfort food. I'll make again for another rainy day by the fire. It's a nice change...just needs a bit of tweaking...
Simple and delicious. How strange that an English woman should find such a good Lancashire Hot Pot recipe on a US website. Best Lancashire Hot Pot I've ever eaten (including my Mother-in-Law's)! It needs lots of salt on the potatoes.
Delicious! I had leftover lamb from Easter, already cooked, so I skipped step 1, pre-cooked the potatoes in the microwave, didn't pre-cook the chopped onions, layered the casserole as directed, used beef broth rather than chicken, added frozen peas in the layer with the meat and onions, and covered the casserole dish. Baked for just under an hour and YUM! Hubby loved it, too!
I don't like lamb. My wife had me make some for Christmas dinner for her mother. I had a lot of left overs & made this recipe. IT WAS EXCELLENT ! My 16 year old son asked for seconds! I couldn't find lamb or chicken stock so I substituted chicken broth (1 10oz can). Cooked in a convection oven @ 375 for 1 1/2 hourc (cuz I was in a hurry)...Worked out & tasted GR8 !
Pretty good. Very filling but I would have preferred a vegetable or two added to it. I used seasoned salt throughtout.
Wow! Lots of lamb stew flavor going on without it being a stew! The meat and potato guy said, "Add this one to the recipe box!" Can see us having this many more times. I did use leftover lamb from Easter and cut the oven temp. halfway through. I also covered with foil for a time. You will like this one! Thanks for a great recipe!
I couldn't give this a better review. My family simply devoured it, and thought it was one of the best meals they had ever had. I have also made it with veal and it was just as good.
