This hearty and delicious Irish lamb stew recipe will make a cold day warm and drive away your winter blues. Moreover, it is also very healthy, with vegetables and protein all packed in one meal. I love the fact that this Irish stew contains both meat and veggies. The prep time is only 20 minutes. It needs to be slow cooked for the most tender and juicy meat.

The stew tastes great by itself or with bread. I love the flavor of fresh thyme in it. You can substitute dried thyme if fresh thyme isn’t available. I have also used rosemary in this Irish lamb stew recipe and it tastes equally great.

You may also use a slow cooker instead of a stock pot. Just put all the ingredients in the cooker and cook for 8 to 10 hours and you have a great meal ready for you when you get home from work. Make sure to brown the meat on all sides before adding it to the cooker. 

Here’s a recipe for fresh Indian bread that tastes great with anything, especially this stew. For more information on how to select lamb meat and safely handle and cook it, click here.
