  1. Place the flour, salt and pepper on a plate and toss the lamb chops in the flour to lightly coat.

  2. Heat 1/3 of the olive oil in a frypan and brown the lamb chops in batches, adding more oil as needed. Set the lamb chops aside.

  3. Add the onion, garlic and vegetables to the pan and cook until the mixture has softened. Add the tomato paste and red wine, stock cubes and two cups of water.

  5. Cover and simmer on low for one hour and thirty minutes stirring well every 15 minutes or so.

  6. Remove the lid and simmer to reduce the liquid.
