Irish Stew Recipe

Irish stew is a traditional stew for Labor day.  I read various recipe's and came up with one of my own. I wanted it to be as traditional as I could get it and It turned out scrumptious. 

Two Lamb steaks cut into cubes
One large Onion
One 3lb bag of red potatoes
One bag of carrots (next time I will use two)
One Quart Beef stock
1 teaspoon Thyme
1 teaspoon Parsley
1/4 cup sherry or cooking wine
S&P to taste
1/2 cup of flour
2 tablespoons Olive Oil

Dredge the lamb cubes in the flower that you added salt and pepper too.  Using a large pot (big enough to cook the stew in) fry your lamb till golden on all sides.
Remove the meat and let it drain.
Cook the onion in the oil till golden.
Put the meat back in and stir. 
Add the carrots, potatoes and cook till they start to sweat.
Add the stock, herbs, S&P and sherry.
Bring the pot to a boil then turn down to let it simmer.  Cook this for several hours just barley keeping it warm.

Serve it with home made bread and Apple pie. And find a sweet little helper to make a picnic.
