View the method
  1. Prepare in the morning if using a slow cooker.
  2. In a bowl mix salt and pepper with plain flour.
  3. Trim excess fat from meat then coat well in seasoned flour.
  4. Heat a little oil in a heavy-based pan on medium heat and brown the meat. Set aside on a paper towel, to drain any fat.
  5. Sauté the onion, garlic and paprika until just brown, and the sliced choritzo if using.
  6. Add back the meat, along with the carrots, olives, orange peel and juice (or put everything into the slow cooker).
  7. Add half the chopped parsley, the drained tomatoes and enough stock to almost cover the meat.
  8. Cover tightly and cook on stove top on a very low heat until tender, or in the slow cooker according to instructions.
  9. Stir occasionally, adding extra stock if needed.
  10. Cook rice as per instructions on packet, adding the reserved tomato juice to the water.
  11. Serve the lamb and sauce over the rice topped with crumbled feta and chopped parsley.

Add more:

  • Substitute fresh dill for the parsley and add some capers
  • Add some Choritzo for extra Spanish flavour
  • Freeze any leftover stock in ice cube trays for use at a later time
