THE HISTORY OF TRADITIONAL LANCASHIRE HOTPOT

Lancashire Hotpot is thought to have originated during the cotton industry in the 19th century.  It’s a simple meal that would have been left to cook slowly all day, ready for the hungry cotton workers at the end of their shift.

 It was probably more likely to have contained mutton in those days, and would invariably have been left to cook with a lamb bone still in the dish – for added flavor.  The meat was often bulked out more with oysters – which were very cheap in the 19th century

 

 

RECIPE INGREDIENTS

1 tablespoon butter

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

500g lamb, cut into bite-size chunks

2 brown onions, sliced thinly

1 heaped tablespoon plain flour 

2 cups (480ml) chicken or vegetable stock 

2 bay leaves

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 

3 medium sized carrots, cut into chunks

1 1/2 pounds (680g) potatoes – peeled and sliced to 2-3mm thick 

1 tablespoon melted butter

1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

Add the lamb back in, then stir in the flour, cooking for a minute. Add in the stock, bay leaves, salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Stir, bring to a simmer.

Preheat oven and pour mixture into a casserole

Then place a lid on it and cook in the oven for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes, stir in the carrots. Top with the sliced potatoes. Start from the outside, and layer the potatoes, moving towards the center.

Brush the top of the potatoes with the melted butter and sprinkle on the dried thyme. Cover with a lid or foil and place back in the oven for 1 hour.

After an hour, turn the oven up to 200c/400f and remove the lid. Cook for a further 30 minutes until the potatoes are browned and crisp on top.

Remove from oven, and leave to rest for 5 minutes. Serve with some green veggies.
