Mutton HotPot

The Hot Pot has that reputation of "let's just throw everything in" but there's so much more than that, always use great quality ingredients, or at least the best you can, I'm using mutton,

A, because I love mutton

and B, because I believe it will give you the best tasting hot pot,

I'd much rather use Winter lamb or great mutton for my hot pot, I'm also going to put Kidneys into my hot pot, they'll be perfectionists out there who'll be screaming out loud at reading this, but I love kidneys and I think they add a great flavour too


This will serve 4 people

  1. About 1kg of middle neck mutton

  2. 4 kidneys cut into quarters and remove the White core

  3. 50g of butter

  4. 1 large onion roughly chopped

  5. 1kg of potatoes

  6. A couple of bay leaves

  7. 50g of well seasoned flour

  8. 4 carrots, peeled and cut in half

  9. 4 anchovies (optional, but really worth adding)

  10. Good splash of Worcestershire sauce

  11. 500ml of lamb stock


  1. Melt the butter in a pan and cook the onion till soft, but don't colour

  2. Peel the potatoes and slice thinly

  3. Mix the onions with half the sliced potatoes
