8 lean lamb shoulder chops, 2.5cm thick
6 small Pontiac potatoes 9about 500g)
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 grinds black pepper
2 large brown onions, thinly sliced
1 cup (about 125g) button mushrooms, trimmed and halved
1 cup (about 125g) baby carrots, thinly peeled
1 small turnip, sliced (about 1/2 cup)
1 small swede, cut into chunks (about 1 cup)
3 cups water
1/4 cup chopped parsley

Preheat oven to 180C. Trim lamb chops of all visible fat. Peel potatoes and cut into 1cm slices.

Layer a large diameter casserole with one third of the potatoes. Cover with 4 lamb chops; Sprinkle with half the salt and pepper. Layer half the onions, mushrooms, carrots, turnip and swede over the lamb.

Cover with a third of potatoes and remaining lamb, salt, pepper, onions, mushrooms, carrots, turnip and swede. Top with remaining potatoes. Pour water over.

Cover and bake for 1 1/4 hours. REmove lid and bake for a further 15 minutes to brown potatoes. Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately, ladled into large bowls, with a soup spoon and fork.

PREPARE IN ADVANCE: The hot pot may be prepared and cooked a day ahead, refrigerated overnight and reheated in a 180C oven for 30 minutes.

COOK'S TIPS: To brown the potatoes on the top of the hot pot, remove the lid for the last 15 minutes of baking time, or place under a hot grill until golden brown.

To serve a juicy hot pot meal easily, follow tradition by spooning or ladling portions into old fashioned soup plates. This ensures all juices are enjoyed.
