Old Fashioned Lamb Stew


  1. Put lamb and Greek salad dressing in plastic bag and marinate for for at least an hour.

  3. Using a large soup pot, add about 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Take the marinated lamb and marinade too, and pour into the hot oil. Let this get very hot and sizzle, turn the meat over and sizzle darken on both sides. Remove from the heat if you think it will burn. When you have a deep brown crisp bottom, quickly add 3 cups of hot water and stir rapidly getting all the drippings off the bottom of the pan. This is your rich color of your soup stock. Let this boil while you chop your vegetables. Add more water if needed.

  10. Stirring well, taste test for seasonings. Add as you need to for sugar, salt, pepper and other seasonings. Let this come to a rapid boil, then reduce to a medium boil.
  11. While this is simmering, Slice your extra celery, green pepper, red pepper and lastly shred 1 large white unpeeled potato. These will not go into the soup until the last half hour. These will be crunchy and delicious.
