IRISH LAMB STEW

On a cold wintry day, there is nothing like a bowl of steaming hot stew, with tender chunks of meat and potatoes, and a flavorful gravy.  So how about some Irish Lamb Stew?

You can buy lamb shoulder for a reasonable price, or even meaty lamb bones, to make this stew.  Lamb is a nice change from beef and offers a slightly sweeter taste.  I found this highly rated recipe on Allrecipes.com where several Irish readers noted that it was like a dish they remembered from their childhood.

Hubby and I both are lamb lovers, so we gobbled this up with glee.  I hope you’ll click on over to The Bear Cupboard where I posted this recipe.  I rated it 10 out of 10 points, because it was just that good.

I am loving it Judy! I am baking a beef and wine stew tonight...similar...with braised veggies. It's that time of year and thank goodness Sunday Night Family suppers are 'back' as one magazine put it! Good grief, I can't believe it was gone but many have such busy schedules. Sunday evening should be regrouping time for family around a delicious meal such as you show here!

My mother used to make a lamb stew and always topped it with dumplings! Have no idea how she made it.
