Lamb's head Stew

Updated: May 7

  • Wonderful lamb stew as my mother used to prepare for Sunday lunch. I always loved how she prepared with patience and love, which is important in any cooking. The stew is very delicious! Broth is suitable for ideal occasions and holidays. With lots of vegetables and added spray. The recipe is fantastic! Follow the recipe.

Ingredients: simple, total time: 60 min. 10 servings

For Stew:

  • 1/2 piece of lamb's head/ cooked/ brain and tongue chopped

  • 200 g lamb meat/ cooked and chopped

  • 800 ml broth/(1 vegetable cube for soup + 800 ml water)/ strained

  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil EVO

  • 30 g of butter

  • 2 spring onions/ finely chopped

  • 1 onion/ finely chopped

  • 3 carrots/ finely chopped

  • 1 cup of rice / 170 ml

  • 1 cup peas/ 170 ml

  • 2 medium potatoes/ diced

  • 1 big tomato/chopped

  • 1 and half teaspoon of black pepper

  • 3 teaspoons sea salt / or to taste

  • 15 peppercorns

  • 1 bay leaf

  • 1 teaspoon mint/ dry or fresh to taste

  • 50 g pasta for soup/ optional

  • 1 Tablespoon celery or parsley leaves/finely chopped — to taste/ optional

  • pinch of red-hot chili crushed flakes/ as desired

  • water as needed

Soup Splash Spray:

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 200 ml of sour milk

  • 1 and half Tablespoons of flour

  • 1 Tablespoon of vinegar

  • 1/2 teaspoon red ground pepper

  1. First, prepare all the ingredients from the description above.

  2. Wash the lamb's head and meat. Put in 800 ml of water with 1 soup cube and cook until it boils. Collect excess fat. Cooking takes approximately 35 minutes.

  3. When the bones start to separate, remove the meat and the head. Cut the meat into cubes, separate the lamb's head from the bones. Cut the brain and tongue into small pieces.

  4. Strain the broth from the remains of the bones and set aside.

  5. In a deep pot, pour olive oil, fry the finely chopped onion until transparent. Add finely chopped carrots, spring onion and stir well. Simmer for about 7 minutes, with stirring occasionally, on low to moderate heat. Then add butter. When the butter has melted, add the chopped meat and the parts from the head that you chopped. Stew for about 3 minutes, then add strained broth, bay leaf, peppercorns, mint, diced tomato, stir well. Cook about 7 minutes with occasional stirring, then add water as needed. I have added gradually with a ladle, depending on the amount and density I wanted to be.

  6. Immediately after that, add rice, peas and potatoes, cook until boiling. Cook until the vegetables and rice are soft. During this time, make a splash. (You don't have to make it, if you don't want to!). Just so you know that it tastes much better with a spray!

  7. In a saucepan, stir sour milk and flour without lumps, add egg yolk, red ground pepper and vinegar, stir again.

  8. Put a saucepan on a low-moderate heat, add gradually of hot broth until you fill the saucepan. Stir with a hand whisk. When you have combined the ingredients, remove from the heat, add slowly to the soup, with stirring constantly.

  9. If you want to put the pasta in the broth, then put it 5 minutes before splash. I did not add it!

  10. At the end, sprinkle with celery or parsley leaves if you desired.

  11. Remove from the heat and leave the broth to cool. When serving this broth, sprinkle it with crushed pepper if desired.

Buon appetito!


  • You don't have to apply the spray (splash) if you prefer it leaner. But you must know that with a spray it tastes real, and it's much tastier!

  • Likewise, you are not obliged to put the pasta for soup. I have added more vegetables and rice instead, and it is much tastier and healthier!

  • In the end, I had about 3 liters of water in the pot with a splash. I've added water with a ladle, depending on how much I needed and the thickness of the broth.

  • if you add pasta, which I did not add at all, increase the amount of water.

  • I personally prefer the soup without pasta, I added more vegetables that are tougher!

  • I would be happy if you would comment on my recipes and put like.
