For the minted lamb stew recipe:

  • salt and pepper

  • olive oil

  • 40g nduja sausage

  • 100ml red wine

  • 1-2 carrots

  • 1 stick celery

  • 1-2 large potatoes

  • 1 red onion

  • 5-6 small sweet peppers

  • 4 cloves garlic

  • handful of mint leaves

  • 1 tsp each of mixed herbs, thyme, basil, cinnamon

  • 125g plain flour

  • salt and pepper

  • ½ tsp smoked paprika

  • ½ tsp chilli flakes

  • 75g butter

  • approx 1-2 tbsp water


Pepper Imps Method:

  1. To begin, prepare the lamb by trimming off any excess fat. Season well with salt and pepper.

  2. Place a pan on a high heat, add in the oil and then sear the lamb on each side until golden. Remove and place into your slow cooker dish.

  3. Return the pan to the heat and add in the 'nduja sausage frying for one minute. Deglaze the pan with the red wine and allow to bubble for 2 minutes before pouring into the slow cooker to.

  4. Slice all your vegetables into small bite-size pieces and wash before adding into the slow cooker. Peel the garlic cloves and add in whole

  5. Season with freshly chopped mint and the dried mixed herbs, basil, thyme and cinnamon. Add in the bay leaves, tomato puree and beef stock and stir through.

  6. Turn the slow cooker on low and cook for 3 hours until the lamb is tender.

  7. To prepare the dumplings, place the flour into a bowl and season with salt, pepper, paprika and chilli flakes. Add in the butter and work into breadcrumbs. Make a well in the middle and pour in just enough water to form a soft dough ball.

  8. Flatten the dumpling dough with your hand or a rolling pin and cut out your lightning bolt shapes (Wizard Tip! You can re-roll the excess to make more dumplings)

  9. Place the dumplings on top of the stew, place the slow cooker lid back on top and allow to cook for another 30 minutes.

  10. Serve generously with a fresh sprinkling of coriander to garnish
