What to Do
Once you have all your ingredients ready, you’ll be all good to go. First, you’ll preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Then you need to heat half of your oil in a pan and brown the diced lamb and kidneys over high heat. When they are done browning, you can add them to the casserole.
Next, it will be time to fry the onions in a pan with the rest of your oil. Let them cook for about 10 minutes until they are a lovely golden brown. After that, you’ll want to add in your flour, stock, and Worcestershire sauce and then bring it to a boil. Season with bay leaf and thyme and as much salt and pepper as you would like. Add that to the casserole dish, as well.
Finally, you can arrange the potato slices on top of your lamb mixture and brush melted butter on top. Cover your dish with a tight-fitting lid, and put it in the oven for an hour and a half. Remove the lid and cook for another 35 minutes after that. Take out of the oven, let it cool, and enjoy!
