Winter is well and truly setting in with its icy grip so now is the time for comfort foods like this Saucy Lamb Knuckle Hotpot.
I've been missing in action here lately and that's because I've been real busy with setting up a community for all Silver Bloggers so head on over there and see what it's all about;)
I'm really happy to be back in the Qurator Hive Top Chef kitchen again and hope you will enjoy my contribution for this week's contest - Qurator's: Hive Top Chef! | Lovely Lamb!
I'm not a big carnivore, but give me a Lamb Chop, Succulent Leg of Lamb Roast, Lamb Shanks or Lamb Knuckles any day.
The Lamb however has to be true Karoo Lamb, and this is why:
True Karoo lamb comes from animals that have been raised and pastured on the veld among at least two of six fragrant indigenous shrubs that have been scientifically proven to impart a unique herby flavour to the meat: Ankerkaroo (Pentzia incana), Kapokbos (Eriocephalus ericoides), Rivierganna (Salsola glabrescens), Silverkaroo (Plinthus karrooicus), Boegoekaroo (Pteronia glauca) and Skaapbossie (Pentzia spinescens).

Saucy Lamb Knuckle Hotpot
One can add any vegetables to this hotpot, but this is what I used:
- 1kg Lamb Knuckles
- 1 Onion sliced
- 2-3 Garlic Cloves crushed
- Juice of half a Lemon
- Fresh Rosemary & Mint
- 500g Baby Potatoes
- 2-3 Carrots diced
- 1 Orange Pumpkin, diced
- Approx 3 cups hot Vegetable Stock
- 4 Tbsp Brown Onion Soup Powder
Sautee Onions & Garlic in a little oil, add Knuckles and brown, adding herbs and lemon juice.
Add vegetables plus enough stock to cover ingredients.
Cook over a low heat for about one and a half hours, top up with liquid if necessary.
Mix soup powder with a little water and add to thicken gravy.
Delicious hearty Lamb Knuckle Hotpot to warm the cockles.
Meat falling off the bone, tender and really good!
