Hearty Low-Carb Lamb Stew


Makes 6 servings


1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 pounds lamb stew meat (or boneless leg of lamb, trimmed of visible fat and cut into 3/4-inch cubes)
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup dry red or white wine (optional)
3 medium red potatoes, quartered
2 cups sliced celery
2 cups baby carrots
1 package (10 ounces) frozen turnip greens


  1. Place flour, thyme, marjoram, salt and pepper in a large resealable bag. Add lamb and close bag securely. Shake bag gently to coat lamb with dry mixture.
  2. Heat a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add oil and lamb and cook, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes or until lamb is browned all over. Add chicken broth and wine if desired and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer covered for 1-1/2 hours or until lamb is tender (no stirring needed).
  3. Stir in potatoes, celery, carrots and turnip greens and simmer, covered, 30 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
