Traditional Irish Stew

Serves: 6
Total Calories: 892


4 potatoes, sliced very thin
4 medium onions, sliced thin
6 carrots, sliced
1 pound bacon, chopped
3 to 3 1/2 pounds shoulder lamb chops, 1-inch thick, trimmed and cut into pieces
salt and pepper, to taste
2 1/2 cups water
4 potatoes, halved
fresh parsley, chopped fine


In a 14-inch deep Dutch oven, put down a layer of the thinly sliced potatoes, onions, and carrots. Top with a layer of bacon and lamb. Sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper. Continue building layers in this manner until all the ingredients are used. Add the water until it barely covers the ingredients. Arrange the halved potatoes on top of the stew, but not in contact with the water, so they can steam as the rest is cooking. Simmer over a very low heat for about 2 hours, or in a moderate oven for the same length of time. Serve in shallow soup bowls and sprinkle with the chopped parsley. Serves 6-8.

NOTE: This recipe can be halved and then prepared in a 12-inch Dutch oven for 3-4.
