Irish Lamb Stew
Prep Time: 30 mins | Cooking Time: 2 hours 15 mins | Servings: 8
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- Coarse salt and ground pepper
- 3 pounds boneless lamb stew meat
- 3 tablespoons canola oil
- 1 large yellow onion, chopped
- 3/4 teaspoon dried thyme
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 3 cups beef stock
- 1/2 cups dark beer
- 1 1/2 pounds new potatoes, chopped
- 1 pound carrots
- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley to garnish
In a large bowl, season flour with salt and pepper. Dredge lamb in flour mixture, shaking off excess. In a Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat. Working in batches, brown lamb on all sides. Transfer meat to a plate. Deglaze pan with 1/2 cup of the water. Saute onion and garlic, for about 5 minutes or until onions begin to turn golder. Return lamb to dutch oven; stir in thyme, beer, and beef broth. Cover, lower heat and simmer until lamb is tender, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Add potatoes & carrots. If broth is getting to thick add a 1/2 cup of water. Reduce heat, and simmer covered for 20 minutes until vegetables are tender. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in parsley just before serving.
