This slow-cooked rustic lamb stew is really comforting and is the perfect winter warmer. The time taken to cook this dish gives a real depth of flavour, enhanced by rich tomatoes and fiery chilli. Give this firecracking rustic lamb stew a try tonight and serve it alongside some crusty bread, perfect for mopping up the delicious sauce.

  1. In a deep pan, heat half the oil and cook the lamb in batches until browned. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  2. Add the remaining oil and fry the onions and carrots for 10 minutes until golden. A minute before the end, stir through the garlic, 2 tablespoons of the rosemary, and the chilli. Pour over the red wine, chopped tomatoes, lamb stock and balsamic vinegar.
  3. Return the lamb to the pan and cook over a gentle heat for 2 hours until tender. Stir through the butter beans and remaining rosemary and cook for 10 minutes. Serve with crusty bread.
