Recipe: Spanish Stew

Left-over pieces of MUTTON or LAMB may also form the foundation of a very appetizing dish known as Spanish stew. Here tomatoes are also used, and to give the stew flavor chilli Sauce is added.

(Sufficient to Serve Six)

  •  2 Tb. butter.
  •  1 onion, sliced
  •  1 Tb. flour
  •  2 c. LAMB or MUTTON, diced
  •  1-1/2 c. stewed tomatoes
  •  1 c. stock or gravy
  •  1 Tb. chilli Sauce
  •  1 red pepper, cut fine
  •  2 tsp. salt

Put the butter in a frying pan and brown the sliced onion in it. Add the flour and meat, and after browning them pour in the stewed tomatoes and the stock or gravy. Season with the chilli Sauce, the red pepper, and the salt. Cover and let simmer until the whole is well thickened and blended.
