Mr. Militant Negro:

This is probably magnificent as a pot pie, and probably even more YummY as a stew without the crust, for those of of watching our waistline!! Thank you Po’ Boy Livin’ Rich.

This recipe for Curried Leg of Lamb Potpie gets five stars in my book. It’s full of flavor and a very tender cut of lamb.

I went the non-traditional route and served this as my Thanksgiving meal this year instead of turkey. Give it a try this holiday season. I promise you won’t be disappointed.


For the Pastry Dough:

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 stick chilled unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup ice-cold water

For the Potpie Filling:

  • 3 TBSP olive oil
  • 2 lbs. leg of lamb roast, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 white onion, diced
  • 5 small turnips, diced
  • 2 cups peeled butternut squash, cubed

  1. Why; yes Mr. Jueseppi; I do like lamb as a matter of fact.
    This does look great. I think I’ll try this. I had a leg of lamb for Thanksgiving and my whole family loves lamb; and curry. My wife just walked in and she is exstatic.


    • Your wife has good taste, in husbands and cuisine. I’m trying this recipe Friday afternoon, only I’ll omit the pie crust part so I can eat more lamb stew, I’ll just use the lamb stew part. That way I don’t anger my diabetes with the pie crust.

      Let me know how it comes out for you if you make this one.


      • I was considering doing the same thing but my wife may want to make the whole pie. If so; I’ll see if we can’t do both. I love the pot pie idea but my experience is that they tend to be very rich. Ok when I was younger but now i try to avoid things too rich. Bad for the stomach and my Diabetes though mine is pretty nicely under control at last check. I had an A1C of like 5.9. You probably know that 7 is the goal for diabetics so I’m doing Ok for now. Anyway; I digress. I’ll let you know how it turns out.


      • Thats a very good a1c. I gave up months ago with the control thing, my eyesight is going and I am nothing close to the man I was a year ago. I decided to enjoy what life I have left and skip the doctors & crap. Quality of life over quantity of life for me. I don’t have a wife or family to have to stick around for so I won’t be hurting anyone when I go. I can be selfish.

        Enjoy your week Angry Man, and we’ll compare leg of lamb potpie results this weekend. ;-)
