Lamb in Rosemary Wine Sauce with Tiny Potatoes

Lamb is always a huge winner, and lamb stew is affordable. It goes beautifully with rosemary, wine and potatoes. I like to have meat for my stews cut in larger chunks than the way the butcher routinely cuts it: they are more presentable this way. You can make this dish with lamb shanks, it will be wonderful too: use 8 lamb shanks, one per person, and follow the recipe exactly.


  • Ready Time : 0 min


8 Servings


  • 4 pounds boneless lamb or beef, cut in 2-inch cubes
  • 6 cups water
  • 2 large onions, thinly sliced Use a food processor
  • 6 bay leaves or 1 teaspoon ground
  • 2 good pinches saffron
  • 2 teaspoons turmeric
  • good pinch ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup dry red wine
  • 2-3 sprigs rosemary, leaves only
  • 2 pounds tiny potatoes, left whole or small potatoes cut in half


Bring the beef and water to a boil in a heavy wide bottom pot. Reduce the flame to medium and cook covered 2 hours. Stir in all but last ingredient and bring to a boil again. Reduce to medium and cook covered 30 minutes. Stir in the potatoes, gently so as not to break up the meat, and cook covered 30 more minutes or a little longer, until the potatoes are very tender. Transfer all the solids to a serving platter with a slotted spoon. If the liquid left in the pot is too thin, reduce it on a high flame until it reaches the consistency of maple syrup. Pour the sauce over all, and serve hot.
