  • 2.6 lb lamb, cut into pieces
  • 5 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 red onion, very finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 6 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 2 tbsp. tomato paste
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 4-5 allspice corns
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 small cinnamon stick (optional)
  • Salt, freshly ground pepper


  1. Heat the olive oil in a pot on a medium to high heat, and brown the meat for about 6-7 minutes, until a crust forms.
  2. Add the onion and garlic. Stir for 3-4 minutes, until transparent.
  3. Mix in the potatoes until nice and shiny, and add the tomato paste.
  4. Do not forget to rub the base of the pot with a spoon so that the tomato flavor is released.
  5. Pour the wine and let it bubble for a few minutes to allow the alcohol to evaporate.
  6. Pour enough water to cover ingredients halfway.
  7. Add the allspice, bay leaf, and cinnamon, and bring to a boil.
  8. Reduce heat and simmer for about 1 hour and 30 minutes, or until the meat falls off the bone and there is hardly any water left in the pot.
  9. Season towards the end.
