When the winter winds blow in cold and wet off the Atlantic Ocean, little can be more welcoming than a steaming hot bowl of lamb stew made in the traditional Irish manner. The Irish know best how to combine their on-hand ingredients – lamb stew meat and root vegetables with savory spices, broth, and a wee touch of wine – and leave it to simmer slowly all day while they’re in the fields, the store, or the office working. This dish is hot and ready when they return home with every vegetable and lamb chunk wonderfully tender and the broth seasoned to the perfect gravy.
The aroma alone of this slow-cooked crockpot-of-love will have you rushing out of your coat, hat, scarves, and gloves! …just add a side basket of crusty bread and you’re ready to enjoy Ireland’s most beloved comfort food.
