Using only salt and pepper to flavor, we weren't sure how the seasoning was going to be. But this Irish stew was delicious. The lamb and bacon added tons of flavor. All that's missing is some crusty bread. We had the stew simmering for 2 hours and it came out perfect. A nice treat for St. Patrick's Day! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
