Hive Top Chef - Saucy Lamb Knuckle Hotpot

in Qurator4 months ago


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!

It's never a good idea for me to read a blog about food before breakfast, especially when it looks like this dish.
Karoo Lamb, I never heard about this particular type of lamb, but it sure sounds like they are eating vegetation that enhances their flavor.
We also love lamb and it's not too often that we buy a leg of lamb, being that it's just the two of us. But, @farm-mom cooked one up a few weeks ago and I had no problem chowing down of it for several days in a row. Needless to say, none of it went to waste, but I'm sure some of it found its way to my mid-section.

Karoo is an arid region in the Cape known for its sheep farming, windmills and beautiful sunsets and of course those herbs that I mentioned grow well in that climate.
I always do a stuffed Leg of Lamb for special occasions especially Christmas, absolutely delicious! I must share that here. Thank you for stopping by @thebigsweed;)

@farm-mom also saw this post with the lamb. She said she was going to give your recipe a try, and I'll make sure she follows thru.😁

That looks devine, making me hungry.
Just love lamb knuckle, yes nothing like comfort food, especially on a cold day like today. Thanks for sharing my friend.

It reminds me of my landlady in England. Looks delicious

It is a big yum from me, thank you for the recipe @lizelle. Shall definitely give it a go.

Re-blogged so that I can find it and it is indeed a great recipe Gog, oh sorry Lady Lizzy 😉
Karoo lamb is certainly the best out there, but a bit expensive so maybe I will only get a half of a kilo as there are only two of us.

Blessings and !BEER

Dankie oom Zac🤩
