Simple one pot dish

Watching RickStein's food heroes on BBC has been such a pleasure. He talks about food with such passion. Further, his recipes are straight forward, often so simple its all about letting the natural flavour shine through. This is something I learnt from one of the episodes, I didn't even need to take down the recipe, it's so easy, its in my mind! Err....ok, I did checked on-line to be sure I didnt leave out any important ingredients :DFirst brown the mutton / lamb / pork (spare ribs). Grease a pot with butter, cover the bottom of the pot begining with a layer of potatoes (cut round), followed by slices of onions, next put the browned meat, a stig of thyme, carots, repeat again with slices of onions, seasoning. Finished off with potatoes at the top, again with seasoning. Bake at low heat (gas mark 2) about 1-1 1/2 hours (for pork), 2-3 hours for mutton/lamb.

That's so funny - I made beef stew this weekend with exact same ingredients except I used red wine to deglazed the shallots that were softened on the same pot where I browned the beef cube before adding all ingredients to crockpot for oven. Such a great recipe that I wished I made more of it since my sons gobbled it all up in 2 days.
