Step 1

1. In a heavy soup pot or Dutch oven, heat oil over high heat. Brown lamb chops on both sides, about 6 minutes, in batches if necessary.

2. Place cooked chops back in pot, top with carrots and onions, and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and thyme. Arrange potatoes on top, cut-side down; pour beef broth over potatoes and bring to a boil over high heat. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 1 to 1-1/4 hours, or until meat is fork-tender.

3. In a small bowl, mix flour and water. Remove potatoes to a platter, add flour mixture to pot, stir, and cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until gravy is thickened. Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.
