Chef John's Irish Stew
Well, as it were Saint Paddy's day today, I thought I'd give this recipe a wee bit of a go.
Honestly, I'd rate it 5 stars for the smell it gives off in the house alone. My husband kept saying "Sure smells good," and I think we were all drooling heavily by the time the first 1 1/2 hours was up!
I made it exactly as written and had the Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread to go with. Unfortunately I added too much water, so it was a bit like a chunky soup, but still incredibly flavourful and the lamb was amazing! My husband said "this is good," three times!
Thanks, Chef John! Now I'm going to curl up with a small glass of Irish whiskey and watch my kids clean the kitchen! Happy St. Patrick's Day!
