m-hunger-games-stew-1-1-460x690

A hearty lamb stew sweet with prunes and apricots in a rich, flavorful sauce that cooks in only 20 minutes in the pressure cooker.

I think of Lamb Stew as Irish food and since next Sunday is St. Patrick’s Day, I thought it was the perfect time to feature this mouthwatering pressure cooker Lamb Stew recipe from Lorraine, Not Quite Nigella.

Lorraine is my virtual adopted Australian daughter, she evens calls me Mum. I was thrilled to learn that she also loves pressure cooking. She uses a Breville slow fast pressure cooker. Lorraine is an excellent writer as well as a great cook. She has a book coming out in April that I can’t wait to read, all about her life and adventures on Not Quite Nigella. It will be available as an ebook for those of us not living in Australia.

Lorraine’s stew recipe is adapted from the unofficial Hunger Games cookbook. If you’re a rabid fan of the Hunger Games you might know that lamb stew is the heroine, Katniss Everdeen’s, favorite meal. Lorraine said she

decided to adapt it to do it in a pressure cooker to mimic the pressure that the contestants would have felt and because, to be honest well I was hungry and I had less than an hour to make dinner.

She also gives directions to cook the stew in a slow cooker or in a regular cast iron pot on the stove top if you prefer.
