🏴Savour The Taste of our Homeland with Hearty Welsh Cawl 🏴
Welsh Cawl is more than just a soup; it's a tradition and it’s a hearty, warming bowl of comfort that has been cherished for generations.
Based on the ‘Eat Welsh Lamb’ recipe which features succulent PGI Welsh Lamb shoulder or neck, fresh thyme, and a medley of vegetables, making it the perfect dish to enjoy on a chilly day.
Here’s what you’ll need to make Cawl:
650g Lamb shoulder or neck, diced
Sprigs of fresh thyme
2 litres of vegetable stock
1 tbsp oil
1 large onion, roughly chopped
3 whole leeks, washed, trimmed, and sliced
4 large carrots, peeled and diced
1/2 swede or 2 parsnips, peeled
4 large potatoes or 12 small Rosedew potatoes, scrubbed and diced.
In a large saucepan, fry the lamb until brown.
Add the onion and leeks, and cook for 2 minutes, until soft. Add the remaining ingredients.
Simmer on a low heat with the lid on until the lamb is tender, which takes approximately 2 hours 30 minutes to 3 hours.
Best served with crusty bread, topped with salted butter and mature Welsh cheddar cheese.
