One Pot Pea Stew

Pea stew with lamb, the ultimate comfort food and one pot meal. I make this recipe at least twice in a month and always make extra to freeze for those days that I don’t have to much time on my hand to cook and need something that I can easily de-frost and heat up for the kids to eat. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do.


One Pot Pea Stew

October 11, 2016

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 45 mins
  • Yields: 4


500 g low-fat lamb cubes, cut into small pieces

3 small onions, chopped into small cubes

3 cups frozen peas

2 medium sized carrots, peeled and chopped into small cubes

3 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped into small cubes

1 bay leaf

3 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1 tsp garam masala powder

1 tsp cinnamon

500 ml tomato puree

2 - 3 cups of water

1 tsp vegetable oil


1In a medium sized cast-iron pot and on high heat sauté onions with vegetable oil until translucent. I prefer using caste iron pots because I don’t loose the texture or shape of my vegetables, even if it has been cooking on the fire for a long period of time - plus I find food just tastes better.

2Add the lamb cubes and bay leaf, sauté until the meat is browned.

3Once the lamb has been browned season the meat with salt, pepper, garam masala and cinnamon.

4Add the carrots, potatoes, peas and tomato puree and water. Lower the heat and allow the ingredients to cook together on a low heat for about 45 minutes.

5Serve with brown rice.
