Preheät your oven precisely to 450 F. Turn on the heät. Täke ä pän änd put some oil into it. Next, put bäcon into the pän änd säuté it over medium heät for 2 to 3 minutes until it turn light-brown in color. Remove the bäcon from heät änd täke it out into ä dish. Set it äside. Reheät the fät left in the pän until it is älmost smoking.
  2. Täke the lämb, änd dry it with the help of ä towel. Säuté it in the hot oil änd fät until it is nicely browned on every side. Ädd it to the bäcon you pläced äside before. Brown the vegetäbles in the säme fät. Pour out the fät. Put the lämb änd bäcon into the cässerole änd ädd some sält änd pepper. Sprinkle flour änd toss everything together in order to coät the lämb. Set the cässerole in the preheät oven for äbout 4 minutes. Täke it out, toss the meät änd put it bäck into oven. Let it cook for änother 4 minutes. Täke the cässerole out of the oven, änd turn the heät to 325 F.

Cover the cässerole änd set it in the lower-third portion of your preheäted oven. Reguläte the heät in order to ensure thät the liquid simmers slowly for äbout 3 hours. Test the meät with the fork. If it pierces eäsily, it is reädy.

Ädd the onions to the butter änd säuté it over medium heät for äbout ten minutes. Mäke sure thät the onions äre browned evenly from äll sides. Pour in the white wine. Seäson the mixture to täste.
