I know this as Navarin d'agneau.

Peanut oil is PUFA and extremely unhealthy. Use ghee, beef fat or tallow instead. Besides, peanut is not a nut, it's a legume.

Fiskrond says:

Ok… maybe 200g meat, say 1½ potato, some of this and some of that per portion…. approximate the ingredients and cook by proven method but also use instinct..
So many other cooking vids aim for clinical exactness.. good to see a chef cooking in a way that viewers can identify with.. bravo!! :-)

How on Earth do you claim this recipe to be "The Real French Lamb Navarin"? Arrogant much? Recipes like this vary from village to village. I have a recipe from Robert Carrier he picked up in a village, and i'll bet it's better than yours, simply because he doesn't claim his is "real". Fuck off.

james redmond says:

Who is this genius? I've never heard of him. I've just used this recipe and the end result was better than any navarin I've tried in restaurants. Always good to stumble on vids like this, where the host actually knows what he's talking about.

Another (sadly) example of why French restaurants are extinct in America. If your family of four orders this menu item, well there goes the entire night.
