🥘 How To Make Gordon Ramsay Lancashire Hotpot?

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. In a large oven-safe pot, heat some oil over medium-high heat. Add the lamb chunks and cook until browned on all sides. Remove the lamb from the pot and set it aside.
  3. In the same pot, add the onions, carrots, celery, and garlic. Cook until the vegetables are softened.
  4. Add the tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, and flour to the pot. Stir well to combine.
  5. Return the lamb to the pot and pour in the beef or vegetable broth. Add the fresh thyme leaves and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Bring the mixture to a simmer, then cover the pot with a lid and transfer it to the preheated oven. Let it cook for about 1.5 to 2 hours, or until the lamb is tender.
  7. While the lamb is cooking, grease a baking dish with butter and layer the sliced potatoes on the bottom.
  8. Once the lamb is cooked, remove the pot from the oven and increase the oven temperature to 400°F (200°C).
  9. Carefully transfer the lamb mixture to the baking dish, spreading it evenly over the potatoes.
  10. Arrange another layer of sliced potatoes on top of the lamb mixture, slightly overlapping them.
  11. Brush the top layer of potatoes with melted butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  12. Place the baking dish back in the oven and bake for about 30 minutes, or until the potatoes are golden and crispy.

  • Layer Potatoes Evenly: When layering the potatoes, try to distribute them evenly to ensure consistent cooking. Thinly sliced potatoes work best.
  • Use Fresh Thyme: Fresh thyme leaves provide a wonderful flavor, but you can experiment with other herbs like rosemary for variety.
