Another lamb stew packed with spices and flavour! Can’t get enough of it and it is so convenient to just let it slowcook in the Wonderbag. To add some extra color and nutrients to the tomato-red stock and the orange root vegetable mash we had steamed red cabbage served with it.
We found some really nice pieces of lamb neck and lamb leg at the butcher, perfect meat for this stew.
Spicy lamb stew
Lamb meat on the bone, 1-2 kg
400 g crushed tomatoes
Bone broth + water
Ground sweet paprika
Salt & pepper
1. First, dry-roast the coriander and cumin seeds in a pan.
2. Mortar together with the turmeric, paprika, salt and pepper.
3. Toss the lamb meat in the spices.
4. Heat a pot with lard, coconut oil or butter and brown the meat.
5. Place the meat aside, chop the onion and brown it until soft in the pan. When soft, add chopped garlic and grated ginger.
6. Place the meat back in the pan and add the crushed tomato, bone broth and water to cover all the pieces.
7. Add the cloves, cardamom and cinnamon.
8. Let the stew boil softly for at least 30 minutes and place in the Wonderbag for a minimum of 4 hours.
The stew is of course possible to leave on the stove top to finish as well, but a slowcooker is better!
All the spices creates a well needed cosiness and warmth during these cold winter months. To balance the dish, it’s nice to squeeze some lemon juice on top before eating!
Another pretty piece of meat being well-treated in the Wonderbag! A chuck steak of venison cooked in bone broth seasoned with garlic and rosemary.
The stew was served with oven cooked beetroot fries and fresh green kale.

White wine vinegar
Add all the ingredients except the white wine vinegar in a pot and let it cook for about 30 minutes on the stove, make sure there is enough liquid to cover the meat. Add the white wine vinegar after taste before placing the pot in the Wonderbag for at least 8 hours, I left it overnight.
Unpack the Wonderbag and let the pot come to boil again on the stove and maybe reduce slightly. Remove the venison meat from the bone, which should be really simple because it is so tender!
It is very nice to serve fresh green kale to any stew because it will soften slightly from the stew stock. The beetroots are such a great taste combination to the garlic and rosemary.
Pulled pork is always a favorite! But it doesn’t always have to be made with that tomato barbecue sauce. Here is a variant with Café de Paris flavors, which was very simple by just adding a block of butter (literally!) and some seasoning to the loin of pork before leaving it to cook in the oven in a clay pot until tender.
The pulled pork was served with green salad and steamed cabbage, nothing else is needed really since there is so much flavor in the meat.

Salt and pepper
Place the loin of pork in a clay pot or something similar.
Cover in the spices.
Chop the garlic and chili and place on top together with the block of butter.
Leave in the oven at 125°C for at least 5 hours.
Pull the meat apart using forks.
Not difficult at all but a very delicious dinner loaded with healthy fat! Please make sure to use grass-fed butter and organic raised pork meat.
Enough food to make a couple of nice lunch boxes for work as well!
Recently there was campaign on this pretty leek in our store, so we bought a few of them. And of course, one of them had to be used with our favorite meat, the oxtail, in a stew! A simple one with only allspice and bay leaves as seasoning together with the leek and a red onion.
The stew was served with kale, radishes and a mash of turnip and swede. Vegetables of the season!
We were able to get some loin of pork, which means it’s time to do some pulled pork! I guess this variant isn’t even close to the original, but we don’t bother following recipes that often so we took what we had at home for the moment.
This was served with oven baked point cabbage and some fried carrots and onion. And lime to add some extra acidity!

Apple cider vinegar
Loin of pork, organic!
Put all the ingredients for the sauce, i.e canned tomatoes with the onion and all the spices and a splash of apple cider vinegar, into a saucepan and let it boil together for as long as your patience holds.
Place the loin of pork in your Schlemmertopf or cast iron pot and cover it with the tomato sauce. Put into the oven at 125°C for at least five hours. Preferably more. It should be possible to tear the meat apart using two forks. That’s your pulled pork!
This variant got a bit saucy, but there’s nothing wrong with that. Save the leftover sauce and cook a nice soup or something similar from it.
