Irish Lamb Stew

Recipe courtesy:
Serving Size : 4 to 6 servings


   2 pounds
lamb shoulder or stew meat, cut into 1-inch chunks
   1 pound carrots, cut into 1-inch chunks
   1 cup coarsely chopped onions
   4 cups water
   1/4 cup Irish whiskey
   1 tablespoon
   1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
   1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
   A few dried lovage leaves or fresh celery leaves
   2 cups 1-inch chunks unpeeled boiling potatoes
   3 tablespoons all-purpose flour mixed with 1/2 cup water until smooth
   2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley leaves

Place the lamb, carrots, and onions in a 4-quart pot.
Add the water and whiskey and bring to a boil over medium heat, skimming off any foam.
Add the salt, thyme, pepper, and lovage. Stir well, cover, reduce the heat to medium-low, and cook until the meat is tender when pierced with a fork, about 1 hour.
Add the potatoes, cover, and cook for 30 minutes. Skim off any fat from the sauce.
Restir the flour-and-water mixture and stir into the stew, cooking until the sauce thickens.
Adjust the seasoning and sprinkle with parsley leaves before serving.
