Paleo Lamb Stew is super simple to pull together and loaded with fall spices to give you a zesty, comforting, healthy, clean meal in one pot | ahealthylifeforme.comDo you ever get board of the same ol’ thing?  I am always trying to try new ways to serve up chicken for you guys, but sometimes it is good to step out of our comfort zones and try something new.

I am really saying this to myself as much as to you.  You see, I have no problem ordering fun and new things when we are out to dinner, but at home, I can get a bit boring and reach for the same proteins again and again.

Enter my Paleo Lamb Stew.  I saw some lamb stew meat at the farmers market and I didn’t hesitate.  Lamb is actually very easy to cook with, technique is very similar to beef or pork.  A great source of protein and omega-3’s.

Adding the cinnamon and nutmeg to the meat overnight allows the flavor to mellow, so you have a slightly sweet flavor in your stew.

    I had a leg of lamb with a lot of leftover meat so I used that meat and added it near the end. I also added white sweet potatoes since the family loves them and it stretched the recipe nicely. This was delicious on a snowy day with the warm spices. Thanks for the recipe.

    1. Thank you so much for letting me know and leaving a comment Debbie. Those white sweet potatoes are the BOMB! I love them.

    Lamb is my jam! I think it’s because of where I come from :-D.
    This would be welcome to our dinner table with open arms.

    I so wish I were more adventurous! Or at least not so picky. I always get chicken strips or a hamburger. I have the palate of a picky 5 year old. And this stew looks great! So comforting.

    I find chicken is such a popular meat in the world that it is hard to pass up, but changing it up is necessary and my husband really loves lamb. I have never worked with it but your lamb stew reassures me that it cannot be that hard 🙂
