Irish Lamb Stew

  • 2 lbs. stewing lamb
  • 4 large potatoes
  • 1 large white onion
  • 1 Tbsp. finely chopped parsley
  • 3/4 tsp. thyme
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup consomme
  • 1 Tbsp. softened butter
  • 3 tsp. flour
  • 1 Tbsp. finely chopped parsley for garnish
Cut lamb into cubes. Peel potatoes and cut into large dice. Coarsely chop onion. Chop parsley and thyme together, then butter a casserole dish.

Arrange a layer of 1/3 of the potatoes on the bottom of the casserole. Cover with layer of lamb, then a layer of onions. Season with the herbs, salt, and pepper. Repeat to form 3 layers, seasoning between each layer and ending with the onions. Add the consomme. Cover the casserole and bake in a 350 deg. F. oven for 1 1/2 hours until the lamb is tender. Combine the butter and flour in a teacup, and add the paste to the casserole. Continue cooking five more minutes until the juices are thickened. Garnish with parsley.
