1 tablespoon flour

150ml white wine

300ml chicken stock

1 tablespoon tomato puree

1 tablespoon sugar

salt and pepper

2 tablespoon fresh mint leaves, finely chopped, plus a few more to garnish

115g dried pears

1 kg potatoes, peeled and sliced

Heat the oil and fry the cubed lamb to seal it. Transfer to a casserole.

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Fry the onions and leeks for 1 minute, stir in the flour and cook for another minute.

Add the wine and stock and bring to the boil.

Add the tomato puree, sugar, salt and pepper with the mint and chopped pears, and pour into the casserole.

Stir the mixture.

Arrange the sliced potatoes on top and brush with the melted butter.

Cover and bake for 1 1/2 hours. Then increase the temperature to 200°C and cook for a further 30 minutes uncovered, to brown the potatoes.

Garnish with mint leaves.
