8 middle neck lamb chops (or equivalent beef)

2 lambs kidneys, half and cored (or equivalent beef)

2 medium onions, sliced

100g (4oz) mushrooms, sliced

(8 shelled oysters - optional)

5ml (1 teaspoon) dried thyme

salt and pepper

450g (1lb) potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced

450ml (¾ pint) lamb or beef stock

25g (1 oz) lard or dripping


1. Remove any excess fat from the lamb. Select a large, deep casserole.

2. Cut each kidney half into 3 or 4 separate pieces.

3. Layer the meat in the casserole with the oysters (if using), the kidneys, onions and mushrooms. Sprinkle each layer with thyme and seasoning to taste. Pour in the stock.

4. Arrange a layer of overlapping potato slices on top. Melt the lard or dripping and brush over the potatoes. Cover and cook in a preheated oven at 170°C (325°F) gas mark 3, for 2 hours or until both the meat and the potatoes are tender when tested with a skewer.

5. Remove the lid carefully, increase the oven temperature to 220°C (425°F) gas mark 7, and continue cooking for about 20 minutes or until the potatoes are golden brown and crisp.
