Mutton stew

fry 1 onion and 2 cloves garlic
add chunks of mutton
season with salt, pepper
add crumbled stock cube
"enough" hot water (I've never measured -- I guess about a pint? A lot gets absorbed by the lentils)
~8 carrots chopped
3 tbsps green lentils

I really like the lentils as thickener. I've never had much success with using cornflour, and the flavour of the lentils works really well with the mutton. I've also added leftover chicken to this and it was great. 

eta: d'oh, forgot to say how long to cook it for. I start about 2 hours before I want to eat, and simmer with a lid on once everything's in
