Irish Lamb Stew..Sorry, No Photo!

A few nights back, I took some leftover lamb, cubed it, mixed it with the lamb broth I had made(Had that nice jellied consistency!)along with cubed potatoes, cut carrots, celery, onions, seasonings all on low in a slow cooker for 7 hrs.... I used some brown gravy mix and flour for a thickener, and had as an authentic Irish stew this side of Dublin! Lamb gravy is so silky smooth, with a flavor that is superior to any other gravy I've had..
Yesterday was at dentists...not a good time! Came home like a whipped puppy, and laid down for the night...

Sounds great, but I have GOT to have dumplings or biscuits on top! (Mother always made dumplings for her thick stews- beef or lamb)

I hate dentists. I feel like a sacrificial pig in that chair. As a result, I ask for nitrous. Probably not good for me, but panic would be worse.
Feel better, BD!

Do you add mint sauce? I love mint sauce with lamb.

Hope that you're feeling better soon.

That sounds scrumptious. I hope you've recovered from the dentist.

Just telling it like it is said...

I hope he was genital...at least with the shots you might have received!!

highlandsranchfoodie said...

The stew sounds wonderful, the dentist sounds terrible. I at least hope your mouth was in good enough shape to sip some leftovers.

Ruth said...

Tracie- Getting there... other issues involved..
Highlander- Read next post!
Ruth- The stew liquid is to die for..

sage said...

I love lamb stew and miss having a good source of lamb as I had when in Utah--i would make a simple lamb stew by layering potatoes, onions, lamb stew meat and pepper in a crock pot and cooking it for a day.

buffalodick said...

sage- similar to my method..lamb in Michigan is either expensive or hard to get! I love lamb shanks, and haven't seen them for sale in years..
