If you love comfort food you will like this recipe! Everything cooks together to create a rich blend of flavors and the juices keep the meat from turning dry. Lamb can be replaced with beef. This stew can be cooked in small pots, like I did, or in a Dutch oven. If you really want to make this dish easily, just use a crock pot.
It’s so good even if you don’t serve it on St. Patrick’s Day!
