Tour Scotland video of traditional Scottish Lamb Stovies with oatcakes in Touchdown Cafe at Perth Airport on visit to Scone by Perth, Perthshire, Scotland. Stovies is a Scottish dish based on potatoes and meat. Recipes and ingredients vary widely, but the dish always contains potatoes, onions, other vegetables, sausages, roast beef, minced beef or other meat. Stovies is thus a dish intended to use left over food. The potatoes are cooked by slow stewing in a closed pot with fat and stock. Lard, beef dripping or butter may be used as the fat. It is also common to stew the potatoes in water alone with onion before adding the other ingredients. Stovies may be accompanied by oatcakes. To stove means to stew in Scots. The term seems to derive from the French adjective étuvée which may be translated as steamed or braised.
