Lancashire Hot Pot


Lancashire Hot Pot

Lancashire Hot Pot is a British recipe for lamb casserole that in my opinion has no peers. I know it goes back hundreds of years and is still made and enjoyed worldwide today.
Servings: 4


  • 1 1/2 pounds 675g lamb steaks, diced
  • 2 pounds 900g peeled potatoes, thinly sliced (about 1/4 inch or 6mm )
  • 12 ounces 340g onions, thinly sliced
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 pound 225g carrots
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme or 2 sprig of fresh thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 lamb or beef stock cubes dissolved in 2 cups 575 ml of water
  • 2 Tbsp 30g melted butter


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F (175 C)
  • Place half of the sliced potatoes into a casserole dish. Place lamb, carrots, onions, thyme and bay leaf on top of potatoes.
  • Place remaining potatoes on top, overlapping the potatoes to cover the all that is beneath.
  • Pour stock over the ingredients in the casserole.
  • Brush the potatoes with butter, cover the dish and bake for 2 hours.
  • Increase the oven temperature to 450 F (210 C), uncover and cook for 20 minutes or until top of potatoes are brown.
