This delicious dish makes for a refreshingly tasty orange / tomato flavour combined with succulent slow cooked lamb meat that will fall off the bone.


  • 2 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1 large onion, peeled and chopped
  • 8 good sized best end of neck lamb chops, trimmed of excess fat
  • finely grated rind of 1 orange
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons tomato puree
  • 1 tablespoon demerara sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 cup hot beef stock
  • salt
  • 1 tablespoon cornflour
  • 1 tablespoons cold water
  • orange slices, to garnish


  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan. Add the onion and cook until lightly browned. Transfer to the stoneware pot, draining well.
  2. Add the chops to the pan and brown on both sides. Transfer to the stoneware pot.
  3. Mix together the orange rind and juice, tomato puree, sugar, mustard, ginger and stock. Pour over the chops and season lightly with salt.
  4. Cover and cook on Low for 8-10 hours or High for 4-5 hours.
  5. Lift out four of the chops. Dissolve the cornflour in the cold water and stir into the sauce until it has thickened. Return the chops and continue cooking for a few minutes to reheat them. Taste and adjust the seasoning.
  6. Garnish with slices of orange to serve.
