This was on an oven mitt that I bought in Ireland. I am copying exactly from the mitt. I will add some of my notes at the bottom of the directions section.

Ingredients

    neck of lamb cut into cutlets

    onions peeled & sliced
  • 1 lb
    potatoes, peeled & sliced
  • 2 Tbsp

How to Make Real Irish Stew

Step-by-Step

  1. Set oven to 325F or gas mark 3.
  2. Layer the lamb, onions, potatoes in a casserole dish. Sprinkle each layer with herbs and season each layer. Finish with potatoes on top.
  3. Pour in cold water, cover with a piece of buttered, greaseproof paper then place lid on dish.

    Cook for 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
  4. NOTES****You can easily substitute a beef roast for the lamb. Also people often add sliced carrots to the layers. Guinness can be substituted for the water for a richer flavor. If you make any of these changes, you no longer have REAL Irish Stew, you have your version of Irish Stew.

    I think this could be done in a Dutch oven.
  5. When I was in Killarney, the stew we had was made with the changes of beef, carrots and Guinness. It was sooooo good. I am going to have to make this over the winter.
