Christma Dinner: Sheep

This is about as non-traditional as you can get. No turkey, stuffing and cranberries for me. I made a simple stew from what amounts to a sheep's leg. Served with rice to soak up the sauce.

Sheep Stew

Serves: 6
  • 1,5 kg [4#] sheep leg, chopped in pieces
  • 1 1/2 onions, diced
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 T thyme
  • 1 C dry white wine
  • 1 1/2 C tomato sauce
  1. Oil into a pan
  2. Brown the pieces of sheep, really well
  3. Remove goat pieces
  4. Sauté onions to soften them, with a little salt
  5. Return meat to pan
  6. Add thyme, pepper, white wine, tomato sauce
  7. Simmer for 40 minutes


  1. Served with rice
  2. It's just browned meat, sautéed onions with tomato sauce and white wine to simmer in. Other meats are perfectly acceptable but sheep's more adventurous. The faint hearted may like it with stewing beef.
Super tender and keeps well for the next day, and the next.
