  1. Place lamb shoulder, carrots, potatoes, onion, garlic, beef stock, seasoned salt, pepper, paprika, thyme, and Irish whiskey in a slow cooker. Cook on Low for 6 to 7 hours. Add peas about 15 minutes before serving.

  • The starch from the potatoes should make the stew thick enough, but add a little cornstarch and water mix if not.
  • Easy Cleanup
  • Try using a liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.
