What Started it all:
Lamb, Avocado, onions, pressure cooker

This British-inspired lamb stew combines the richness of lamb with the creamy texture of avocado. Cooked in a pressure cooker, this dish is both quick and full of flavor, making it a perfect meal for a cozy dinner with friends or family.


  • 800g lamb shoulder, cut into chunks
  • 2 ripe avocados, diced
  • 2 large onions, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 500ml beef or lamb stock
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce


  1. Prepare the Ingredients: Start by dicing the lamb shoulder into chunks, chopping the onions finely, and dicing the avocados. Mince the garlic and chop the fresh rosemary and thyme.
  2. Sauté the Onions and Garlic: Set your pressure cooker to the sauté function. Add the olive oil and let it heat up. Add the chopped onions and minced garlic, cooking until the onions are translucent and fragrant, about 5 minutes.
  3. Brown the Lamb: Add the lamb chunks to the pressure cooker and brown them on all sides. This should take about 5-7 minutes. Make sure the lamb is well-sealed to lock in the flavors.
  4. Add Seasonings and Liquids: Season the browned lamb with salt, black pepper, fresh rosemary, and thyme. Stir in the tomato paste and Worcestershire sauce, ensuring everything is well combined.
  5. Pour in the Stock: Add the beef or lamb stock to the pressure cooker. Stir well to deglaze the pot, making sure to scrape up any browned bits from the bottom.
  6. Cook Under Pressure: Secure the lid on the pressure cooker and set it to high pressure. Cook for 30 minutes. Once the time is up, allow the pressure to release naturally for about 10 minutes, then perform a quick release to let out any remaining pressure.
  7. Add the Avocado: Carefully open the pressure cooker. Gently stir in the diced avocados, being careful not to mash them too much. Let the stew sit for a few minutes to allow the avocados to warm through.
  8. Serve: Ladle the stew into bowls and garnish with extra fresh rosemary or thyme if desired. Serve hot with crusty bread or over a bed of mashed potatoes.

This Lamb and Avocado Stew is a delightful blend of rich and creamy textures, making it a unique and satisfying dish. The pressure cooker ensures that the lamb is tender and infused with the flavors of the herbs and stock. Enjoy this hearty meal with family and friends for a comforting and delicious dining experience.
