Lancashire Hotpot may sound like a mouthful to say but the dish itself is heavenly. It is a slow-cooked lamb stew with a mix of seasonal vegetables that are topped off with thinly sliced potatoes. It is cooked in a heavy pot on low heat so that the meat is tender and extremely flavorful when it’s ready.
It apparently originated during the cotton industry back in the 19th century. Families would leave this simple meal cooking all day so that they could relish it when they returned home after their long shifts. Any dish that is still as popular as it was nearly 200 years ago is guaranteed to be lip-smacking!
