Lancashire Hotpot

A dish from the county of Lancashire.

2 lb lamb
4 lambs kidneys
20 fl oz hot water
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 lb potatoes
lb onions, chopped
1 bayleaf
A sprig of thyme
Tablespoon flour
Knob of Butter
Fat or oil for frying
Salt and pepper

1. Peel the potatoes and cut into thick slices.
2. Skin, core and chop the kidneys and chop the lamb meat into small cubes or chunks.
3. Brown the cubes of lamb and kidney in a hot frying pan with a little oil. Continue until all the pieces have been browned then put them in an oven proof casserole dish.
4. Keeping the same oil used to brown the meat, brown the onions.
5. Once the onions are golden brown stir in a little flour to soak up all the oil and juices in the pan.
6. In a measuring jug add the Worcestershire sauce to the hot water and then pour and stir into the pan with the flour etc. Take care to pour slowly and blend the mixture well, or else you may end up with a lumpy mixture.
7. Add salt and pepper to taste.
8. Now gently heat the pan and bring the contents to a simmer. As soon as it is simmering, take off the heat, then pour over the meat and kidneys in the pot.
9. Add the thyme and bayleaf. Now lay the potato slices on top of the meat to form a cover by overlaping the slices.
10. Add a few small knobs of butter on the potato roof and cover with a tight fitting lid.
11. Place in a preheated oven at 325'F (gas mark 3) or (170'C) for about 1 hours.
12. Remove the lid and return to the oven for another 45 minutes - to help brown the potato and finish the cooking.

Yorkshire Puddings (makes around 6 puddings)

These are easy to make as, most people fail at the cooking park - the oven has to be very, very hot and the pans should be smoking when you remove them from the oven!

10oz of plain flour
1 large egg
A large pinch of salt
5oz water
5oz milk

1. Preheat the oven at about 200 degrees, pour about 1cm of oil into each section of a muffin tin and place in the oven.
2. Mix the egg, water and milk together, Sift the flour into a big bowl.
3. Pour the mixture slowly onto the flour. As you start to pour beat the mixture together with a whisk. Add the salt and continue to beat.
4. Once all the ingredients have been beaten together leave to stand, for about half an hour.
5. Once the oven is hot enough (very hot), remove the tray and for the puddings and pour off the oil.
6. Fill each sectipon about 3/4 full with mixture and put straight back into the hot oven.
7. Bake for about 20 minutes (try not to open the oven during this time as the yorkies could sink) till they are risen and brown. Remove from the oven and remove from the tin straight away.
Serve with Roast Beef and loads of gravy.
