Lamb Shoulder cooked in a clay pot enhances the flavor of the dish and also serves as a very a simple flavorful wholesome heartwarming one pot meal

Instead of the usual clay pot chicken or pork, I tried lamb shoulder stewed in a clay pot. Mind you this is so yummy. This lamb stew is loaded with our favorite ingredients and simmer over slow fire which makes the meat so tender and the vegetables that just melt in your mouth. Easy and fuss free, this is our one-pot meal that is so flavorful and satisfying.

Stew Lamb Shoulder with Chinese Leeks
Ingredients : 

- 1 lamb shoulder lightly marinate with salt and pepper(cut into your desired size)
- 2 potatoes (cut into wedges)
- 1 carrots (peeled and cut )
- 4 Shiitake mushrooms (soaked and cut)
- 1 tomato (cut into wedges)
- 2 stalks of Chinese leek (cut into your desired strip)
- 4 garlic cloves (roughly chopped)
- 1 large red onion (cut)
- 2 bay leaves
- a dash of dried thyme
- water for stewing

Seasoning: (to taste)
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp black peppercorn (lightly crushed)
- 1 tsp of thick caramel sauce
- 1 tbsp of teriyaki sauce

Method :

1. Heat oil in a clay pot and saute garlic and half portion of the cut onion till aromatic.
2. Add marinated lamb shoulder, Shiitake mushroom, half of the Chinese leeks, dried thyme and bay leaves. Stir fry to combine well.

3. Then add in potato, carrot and tomato and continue to mix well.

4. After that add the seasoning and continue to stir till aromatic.

5. Add water just enough to cover the ingredients. Bring to a boil and cover. Let it simmer over low fire till the gravy is thickened and meat is cooked and tender. Make sure to stir on and off to prevent vegetables from sticking to the bottom.

6. When the meat is cooked and gravy slightly thickened, add the remaining onion and Chinese leeks. Stir and mix well.

7. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary.

8. Serve with hot steamed rice
