Reviews for Irish Lamb Stew
"It was delicious and simple to make and definetly want to make it again. Celesta Mast"
"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?????Barb "
"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, MinnesotaView this recipe now"
