This recipe for Lamb Stew, aka Hammelfleisch Eintopf, is such an easy dinner recipe idea.
It's a traditional German "Eintopf" (one-pot) meal.
Taken from my Mutti's hand-written cookbook and translated into English, I hope you'll find this easy lamb recipe one that you'll add to your favorites as well.
Use a lean cut, such as the shoulder or leg of lamb or buy stewing lamb already cut up to make this go quicker.
What to serve with this stew? A loaf of crusty German bread is all that's needed. Enjoy!
Both lamb and mutton are covered with a papery white membrane which should be removed before cooking. This membrane, if left in place, gives a strong gamey flavor.
I have to admit that I don't remember my Mutti making this. At least, I don't remember her telling us we were eating lamb. I just remember eating a really delicious tasting green bean stew with meat. I wish she were still alive today so I could ask her if she snuck in that lamb?!?
