Irish Lamb Stew
This lamb stew is so simple to put together and only takes few simple ingredients, it’s the simplicity of this dish that makes it so heartwarming and belly hugging.
The key to a good Irish lamb stew is using the finest quality of lamb. I have used Kerrigans leg of lamb and the meat is so soft and delicious. I have been using Kerrigans meat for years now, there are a fantastic butcher who are passionate about what they do and it shows in the quality of their products.
There are two ways to make this stew you can add all the ingredients into a big pot or you can even make it in slow cooker. Follow the recipe below for cooking on stove top and oven. If using a slow cooker then cook on low for 8 hours.
It’s a delicious and simple stew goes well with a brown or white soda bread. It is suitable for home freezing. Divide in portions and freeze the day you prepared it.
