You all seemed to really enjoy the recipe for my favourite soup last week, so I thought I'd share another delicious recipe for you all to try. I made this slow cooked lamb hotpot at the weekend and it was melt in the mouth delicious. The meat was soft, the gravy was rich, and the potatoes were crispy - basically just the perfect dish for this time year. Plus, it was mega easy to put together, so even the kitchen novices can whip this one up.

Without further ado, here's the recipe for my slow cooked lamb hotpot. This recipe serves 4 people, and is perfect served with green veg or some pickled red cabbage.
