That will stick to your belly like glue.
Blue Ribbon Recipe
Using only salt and pepper to flavor, I wasn't sure how the seasoning was going to be. But this stew was delicious! The lamb and bacon added tons of flavor. All that's missing is some crusty bread. I had the stew simmering for 2 hours and it came out perfect! The Test Kitchen

How to Make Traditional Irish Stew
- To make Irish stew, all the ingredients are assembled in layers in a large stew pot.
- Begin with layers of sliced potatoes, onions, and carrots.
- Top with a layer of Canadian bacon and lamb.
- Sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper.
- Repeat these steps until all the ingredients are used.
- Add enough water to just cover 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.
- Sprinkle liberally with the chopped parsley and serve in soup bowls.
