Irish Lamb Stew Recipe

Irish Lamb Stew Recipe

Meet the Cook: With our busy schedule, I cook lots of stews. This one - handed down to me by my mother-in-law - is nice because you can prepare it on the weekend and reheat it during the week. It's a great full-course meal...put out hard rolls and French bread, and you're set. My husband and I have a son, 11. -Jeanne Dahling, Elgin, Minnesota

"Copying this for later.  I had always heard that  Irish Lamb Stew always called for NOT browning the meat first--which made it different than other stews.  Anybody ever hear this?????
