1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (160° fan) | 350F | gas 4.

2. In a large mixing bowl, toss the lamb with the flour, 1 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp pepper.

3. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a large casserole dish set over moderate heat until hot. Working in batches, sear the lamb in the hot oil until golden-brown, turning as needed, 4-5 minutes. Remove to a plate; repeat for the remaining lamb.

4. Reduce the heat under the dish to medium. Add the remaining 2 tbsp oil followed by the onion, carrot, and a pinch of salt; sweat until softened, about 5 minutes.

5. Return the lamb (and any accumulated juices) to the dish. Stir in the herbs, stock, and some salt and pepper to taste; bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. 6 Peel and thinly slice the potatoes. Arrange on top of the lamb stew and dot with the butter; arrange the tomatoes on top of the potatoes.

7. Transfer the dish to the oven; bake until the lamb is cooked through and the potatoes are golden-brown, 30-40 minutes.

8. Remove from the oven and let stand for 5 minutes before serving with a garnish of thyme. Can be frozen.
