Sempoi Lamb Stew

sorry about the messed up looks :)
I try different ways making stew but using all the same basic ingredients. Made this yesterday, thicker than my usual (hubby's request).

500g lamb (any cuts that you like)
1/4 cup plain flour
1-2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
- mix flour, salt & pepper & coat lamb with flour mix

3 tablespoon olive oil1 medium size red & green capsicum

2 tablespoon butter

2 medium size potatoe
1 medium size carrot
1 stalk celery
1 large tomato
1 medium brown onion
- all cut into big chunks / squared
1/4 teaspoon rosemary (if not fresh, dried will do)
a dash of oregano
1/2 cup hot water
3 cups tomato soup + 2 tablespoon tomato paste / puree (I used pasta sauce ;))
salt + sugar to taste

- heat oil + butter on medium heat, cook lamb, turning after 3-4 minutes till quite brown
- add all veggies, stir till well mixed with lamb
- add herbs, stir
- add hot water, stir & cover for about 15 minutes
- add tomato soup + puree / paste / sauce, stir well & cover
- reduce heat, add salt & sugar to taste and let slowly cook till lamb is tender
- serve hot with rice / bread

Happy trying .. :)
