Slow Cooked Lamb Hotpot

We were recently asked to share a back to school recipe using Welsh Lamb. You see, Welsh Lamb is great brain food, has a really high iron content and is a good source of vitamin B12, making it perfect back to school meals. We created a Lancashire Lamb Hotpot using Welsh Lamb and the kids loved it.
